      sounds like either a server is flaky en-route to rapid share or that rapid share itself is so busy that all it's connections get full and gives the error out.

      Those that can't access it try pasting your results from a tracert search so we can see where it is failing to connect.

      It's not just sky, I have spoken to loads of people who aren't on sky and they are having problems too. It is at random times ad different times for different people on different ISPs. I think we can safely say that this is a RaidShare fault rather than a Sky fault.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Connections to Rapidshare still seem very flaky at the moment:

      Strange thing: On two occasions in the last couple of days when I could not connect to RS on Firefox, I could get a connection with Browzar (which seems to be an adware frontent for IE - so I'm not recommending this - however, someone mentioned that they could connect to RS with Browzar but not with Firefox, see

      Does sky block sites with heavy usage ? #9).

      If I then closed firefox and then re-open firefox it connected OK.
      Any idea why this could happen?

      This may be just fluke but RS certainly seems to have some issues at the moment.

      Just to clarify, sky unlike other providers will not block sites or http's, not done. Alot of issues come from people tweaking there IE or changing there DNS Servers over. I also recall several issues relating to people not using the sky equiptment provided which provides you with a server password and logon ID

      Ah but does YouSendIt give you access to hundreds of pirate movies and thousands of illegal music tracks.

      And then people wonder why RS has problems, the sooner it gets shut down the better, I hate IP theft!
