      Okay I got a reply from Rapidshare

      I am not happy it is being blocked ofc :P but I am happy to say that I don't believe sky is to blame lol

      Rapidshare said that too many connections results in a block on their side for 'security reasons'.

      If using a download manager try reducing the 'parts' or amount of connections.

      I have lowered mine from 10 to 5 and I shall see how this goes for me.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Sorry for the double post but I have been blocked again I tried sending them an email and even that fails :/

      I got this back:

      This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

      Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

      support@rapidshare.com

      Technical details of permanent failure:
      Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 554 554 5.7.1 Service unavailable; Client host [209.85.219.170] blocked using dnsbl.sorbs.net
      the 209.... ip address is NOT my IP address obviously. It is a RIPE address apparently :/

      What the hell is going on?

      a fix/ workaround to get to rapidshare.com webpage:

      juat add a https in the url, instead of a http, and you will find, you will get through to it easily!

      The 209 address is Google, it looks like they have blocked Google email addresses. Do you have another address, Hotmail, Yahoo or such like you could try.

      Apparently BT customers are also having problems accessing rapidshare UK BT Broadband ISP Customers Blocked from Rapidshare − ISPreview UK . I think it's down to IWF transparent proxies filtering some of rapidshare's IP addresses.

      I agree, similar incident here.

      I think from Rapidshares view it's seeing all Sky customers as one IP address (same for BT, all their customers under 1 ip) so when they say 'too many connections' I think they mean too many from one IP.

      I'm not sure if Sky's and BT's IWF proxies do, but transparent proxies should add an x-forwarded-for: header with your IP address: however anyone could fake proxy headers to try to circumvent rapidshare's limits, so rapidshare would have to verify that the IP address of the proxy is a legitimate proxy, so that the x-forwarded-for: header can be trusted.

      I guess it's also possible that the proxies are struggling to cope with the volume of traffic from a site like rapidshare.
