      Got a reply from Fileserve about not being able to download off their site via Sky

      "Your IP & ISP is part of the IWF (internet watch foundation). They have "blocked" the access to our site & any other hostings on their list"

      WTF is this "internet watch foundation"? And what companies don't use this thing?


      Read up about IWF, they only talk about child porn. I don't download child porn. This sucks balls.

      A little bit ****** off.

      Could this be the reason for half my slowdown, because we're being rerouted through these Communist bstards

      Bring Communism to the internet. Great. What next?

      the IWF are mainly for the child abuse stuff, but also cover any other major criminal content. Fileserve may tell you that its the ISPs responsibility to fix it, but in all honesty Fileserve need to work with the IWF to identify and remove the offending content, which will remove it from the IWFs lists, which will then mean that the ISPs stop blocking it.

      Sites like Fileserve DO remove offending content. They do it a lot. What more can they do?

      And what can IWF do to help anyway?

      No LEGIT sites should be blocked!

      This is wrong, they're blocking legit sites just because they find it difficult to track pedophiles. They're gunna end up in court and they're gunna lose. Give it time.

      Almost all ISPs are part of the IWF and if the IWF have marked a site then it will be blocked - simple as that

      The ISPs are just following the IWF guides - take it up with them

      The problem with sites such as Fileserve, MegaUpload, Senspace, etc is that although they are used to transfer legit files they're also used to upload warez and copyrighted material

      Sorry to sound thick.

      What is file serve? It cant be that bad as my company will allow it.

      Just says you can upload files, but why would I want to do that ?

      I cant search for any of the files ect.. ?

      Is it like a torrent site?

      No it's a site to upload files to and then you give recipients the link to the file to be downloaded. It's the same as RapidShare, MegaUpload, etc

      The issue is a lot of these sites are used to distribute copyrighted material so are frequently blocked by ISPs - not a lot can be done

      if ur running a windows machine you could try downloading and installing hotspot shield

      might enable you to get around the blocking although no guarantees

      but on a side not will definitely let you watch american tv streamed from hulu,cbs etc

      Re: Got a reply from Fileserve about not able able to download off their site via Sky

      Will a "hosts" file workaround for fileserve work then ??

      Eg like the ones that we use for rapidshare and hotfile ???
      Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      I cannot find the correct IP address to use for fileserve anywhere,( the ones listed for Hotfile and Rapidshare in the above thread work a treat)

      edit**

      ah I see, maybe its a different issue.... I've just tried to download a Fileserve link and it told me "Your IP has failed the captcha too many times. Please retry later."

      Uhm seems quite a good idea, I have tons of videos of my kids, would love to send links to my family for this video, but then again its looks a tad dodgey

      I can see child porn being filtered through the site.

      So for me.... Im out
