      Question Rapidshare down ??

      Hey guys, just wondering if anyone else is having problems accessing rapidshare or links provided by them. I'm a reasonably heavy user and normally have no problems at all with them, but have been unable to access rapidshare for nearly 2 days. Are they down? Are sky blocking them? Is there some newfangled virus that blocks access to rapidshare.

      Thanks in advance...

      Is there some newfangled virus that blocks access to rapidshare.
      There are many who think that it is a virus. My Outlook filter for one

      There is a long running thread concerning RS -
      Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Re: Rapidshare down ??

      tbh I don't know if Sky are blocking it or not.

      I have just tried this on our dedicated server (none Sky) and I can get to Rapidshare no issues.

      Possibly a routing issue, but definitely apparent on Sky's network.

      hmmm.... thanks for trying.

      Me thinks Sky are targeting rapidshare much the same way they are targetting Bit-Torrents.

      I've emailed them, got an automated response so far, will let you know if I get anything more substantial from them.

      I wasn't aware of any blocking of sites. As for the way Sky are targeting, if you mean the BPI announcement, Sky would only send a letter out to 1k of people using them per week. So the chances of getting caught are very, very slim.

      Rapidshare can be totally legal, they may host illegal files, but thats up to the user what they download, if they are blocking it, they shouldn't be blocking the good guys.
