      Easynet - Project Filtering?

      Well, Just earlier, I was download a few files from Rapidshare, Perfectly Legal files, Just a few 100Mb home movie edits from a family member in the States.

      I went to download them and it first said my IP address "212.134.155.211" was already downloading a file?
      Great I though.. But then, Since when has my IP been "212.xx.xx ect"

      So I went on to DNS Stuff and did a search, DNS Stuff: DNS tools, DNS hosting tests, WHOIS, traceroute, ping, and other network and domain name tools.

      inetnum: 212.134.155.192 - 212.134.155.223
      netname: EASYNET-BL-FILTER
      descr: Filter Project
      country: GBadmin-c: EH92-RIPE
      tech-c: EH92-RIPE
      status: ASSIGNED PA
      notify: hostmaster@easynet.netmnt-by: EASYNET-UK-MNT
      changed: phil.duffen@uk.easynet.net 20041116
      source: RIPESo,

      Ok i thought nothing of it, Until I tried downloading it again and it said my IP had been banned?Whatever for?So im wondering, Does anyone know anything else about this "Filtering Project" and what is it all about?Btw, Got my parents to test in the study with VM and they can download it fine?

      I would assume if Easynet are filtering IP's it would be to do with the Bogons issues when the Sky IP's were giving no access at the beginning to certian websites etc.

      Been raised before:

      whats going on with IP addresses ?

      The only "project filter" I've heard of is:

      Quote:
      "DNS Blacklist Packet Filter project is a Linux netfilter client that decides whether to accept or drop packets based on the results of a DNS blacklist query (such as MAPS, SORBS, or SPEWS, to name a few)."

      Re: Easynet - Project Filtering?

      I reckon it's Easynet's equivalent of BT's Cleanfeed. When the routers get an IP address match for a site that's been listed as distributing illegal material, the transfer is handed off to a transparent proxy where the URL can be matched against a blacklist.

      Once the request is deemed clean - as is the case here - the request is forwarded to Rapidshare, but the fact that the request has come through a proxy upsets the mechanism by which Rapidshare allows only one download at a time from any one machine.

      They're using proxies to do this? That's extremely poor by any service provider's standards. Cleanfeed runs off of routers, not proxies. Most ISP's would run a packet sniffing or router-run blacklist, not a proxy. This results in no NAT issues and equally as important - no latency or bottlenecking.

      Time to switch my ISP I think. I don't seem to ever be able to download anything from RapidShare which is a pain in the backside considering it's the easiest way to transfer large files to clients.

      Maybe you should use something like Yousendit, which is very unlikely to be blocked for illegal content. YouSendIt: Online File Sharing and collaboration with FTP Replacement - Send Large Files and Email Attachments with Managed File Transfer Solution

      Sky is also a domestic broadband supplier, business/commercial use is specifically banned. If you are using it for business, you probably should find another ISP who will give proper business support.

      Re: Easynet - Project Filtering?

      Thanks - however rapidshare is the standard that most people are using to host so downloading is a real issue.

      I work from home occasionally so hardly think that's a reason to start quoting T&C's about using a business ISP instead.

      So does anyone have an idea on why Rapidshare is not working? This has only occurred recently. (last two weeks).

      Thanks

      Sorry, but you are the one who is complaining about not getting large files to your clients. If you were using a business class ISP you would have reason to complain, with Sky you don't.

      The problems with RS seem to rise every now and then, if you have a read of this very long thread and the links it contains, you will get an idea of what has been done to overcome the difficulties you are experiencing.
