      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Guys, this is a problem with Sky's connection. It seems to me that they are blocking rapidshare because it is very bandwidth dependant so they blacklist rapidshare during certain random hours.

      To fix this problem, simply copy the link of the file you want to download from rapidshare, but add an 's' after the http and add an 'ssl.' before rapidshare.com part of the url. So, for example:

      sky blocks - RapidShare: Easy Filehosting
      sky doesn't block - https://ssl.rapidshare.com/

      sky blocks - RapidShare: Easy Filehosting
      sky doesn't block - https://ssl.rapidshare.com/files/456...xamplefile.avi


      ================================================== =

      I actually read this from a 3rd party website, but connormill has added cement to the brick wall. Many thanks to him.

      Hope this solution helps, It has definately helped me.


      EDIT: Hopefull Connormill will add this to his thread's frontpage, as it will help a few people, as it is a top for a google search on this topic.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Okay I hate to bring this thread back again, we are aware of how to 'fix' this and I have been doing so for ages but it no longer works.

      No matter what IP, or prefix I use (https://ssl. or http://rs28.) it does not connect once blocked.

      This is annoying and I pay for Rapidshare and it's ******* me off so much, how do we fix this and when are sky going to stop blocking this?

      Somehow I think we all know that is Bull ****. I can use someone else's connection and it works. It is working for me again right now, but I can assume it will be blocked again later. Rapidshare deny blocking connections from Sky.

      If it works fine on the same exchange through a different ISP then it has to be Sky that are blocking the connection to Rapidshare. If Rapidshare were blocking Sky IPs then surely changing the address used to connect would never work. Connecting to a different Rapidshare IP appears to sometimes work, which kind of shows that Sky are the problem not Rapidshare.

      Well it works fine here so go away until you can be civil, with your attitude, I hope you never get it to work.

      This is a place for help, you obviously don't want any.

      I was saying that Sky not blocking was rubbish, not his comment. I'm really tired, didn't mean to sound like that. Sorry IAmNotTheEnemy. It just really gets on my nerves. My Sky connection is 99% flawless, this is the ONLY problem i have with Sky and nobody has a resolution for it that works.

      I have the top package and pay Sky a hell of a lot of money every month, I also pay Rapidshare a bit of money too. I just want it to work and I hope someone can help.

      So any explanation as to what the problem is then? It's not Rapidshare.
