      Not that I want to but I can't connect either at the moment. I am using OpenDNS but even that isn't helping.

      works perfectly fine here on a sky connection.

      perhaps you are running peerguardian or similar?
      check your hosts file?
      use opendns?

      Re: Unable to access rapidshare again!!!!!

      If easynet is part of the sky network then don't believe a word sky say.......They DO employ techniques for cutting down on their network traffic even though they swear blue they don't. The most recent ones I have uncovered are a combination of DNS poisoning and packet shaping, yesterday I was getting an 83% loss from a node in their bricklane infrastructure in London, and intermitantly getting a http 500 error page which was being dished out by DNS cache on a SKY node. It is not a real 500 error message simply a page made to replace rapidshare.com and used with packet shaping looks like a faulty page. When this occurs Bt and BE internet connections that I have tested work fine.

      Here is the proof that they employ packet shaping, the 2 images below is the result of todays problems i'm getting a 50% packet loss on their network only to rapidshare, the same node does not give any loss to any other site.

      Re: Unable to access rapidshare again!!!!!

      I only seem to get probs weekend PM now with Rapidshare

      Simple fix which i use and has been posted on threads in here before is replace http:// with http://ssl. bit of a pain if you are downloading a lot of files but better than nothing

      Re: Unable to access rapidshare again!!!!!

      only recently joined sky. At first I had no problems with Rapidshare, but gradually I began to notice problems over the last few weeks. Now I cannot get into RapidShare: Easy Filehosting without typing in ssl. in place of www. for the majority of the time.

      also if I want to download anything I have to change the link so that the server is referred to in the url ... e.g: http://rs1.rapidshare.com/files/etc.etc.

      if I want to use the rapidshare download manager, well .. its near impossible. Once in the while it connects and starts downloading, but most of the time it cannot locate the files that I know exist.

      Use of a proxy circumvents the HTTP 500 error page and the "missing files" suddenly are located. But its weird as the error is intermittent. I just tried rapidshare now and I could get in without a proxy and without mucking around with the url.
