      This allows me to access Rapidshare okay but only Megaupload if I take www out of the URL. Is there any other way round that as I tend to copy & paste links into Jdownloader & it doesnt seem to allow editing of parsed URL's?

      Do you know any other IP addresses I can add to the Hosts file ? Eg. Hotfile, Depositfile, Sharingmatrix, Turbobit, etc, etc,

      Many thanks again!
      209.222.148.136 *.megaupload.com

      Try that.

      edit: nah that don't work for me. :S Maybe: 209.222.148.136 www.megaupload.com

      The inability to download porn is starting to get to people. If this goes on much longer we will all be wandering the streets like George Romero Zombies.

      That just made me smile, although I believe Lost is also available on there.

      How does a DNS problem affect so many different websites that just happen to be for file storage? They must be spread out across the globe, maybe they are testing some sneaky blocking software for Mandelson.

      Open notepad, find and replace www. leave the 'replace with' field blank and it will delete all the www.'s

      Workarounds for Sky customers unable to access filesharing sites
      (and may probably be able to help you if there's other types too)

      So, what's up?
      For some reason, it appears that Sky users are again unable to access certain webpages, for an unknown reason. It seems to be affecting mainly filesharing sites but others are reported to be affected too. The common symptom is the webbrowser going to a HTTP 500 - Internal Server Error page, a page sitting on connecting for a long time, reporting a page as done without actually loading it, or a download manager waiting forever for a connection.

      What's affected?
      The list of sites currently includes, but is not limited to:
      Filesharing sites
      Code:
      www.Rapidshare.com
      www.Rapidshare.de
      www.Megaupload.com
      www.Hotfile.com
      www.2Shared.com
      www.Depositfiles.com
      www.Sharingmatrix.com
      www.Turbobit.net
      www.Hotshare.net
      www.Filesurf.ru
      www.Uploading.com
      www.Zshare.net
      www.Megavideo.com
      www.Multiupload.com
      Non-Filesharing sites
      Code:
      Ultimate Battle Story - Home - from rexon91
      All of the above have been tested by me at the time of writing (22:16 18/3/2010) and do not load

      The following are reported as previously inaccessible but working for me at time of writing:
      Code:
      Speedtest.net
      Sendspace.com
      How can I get round it?
      The SSL Trick - RS and Hotfile
      Firstly for Rapidshare, you should be able to access the webpage by simply substituting the beginning of web address from http:// to https://. This connects you on the SSL secure connection, rather than the regular one and so effectively your link would instead become:
      or
      So far, this does not seem to be able to work with Megaupload, and I don't believe it has been tested on any others as of yet either. If you do test, please respond to the thread stating your results.

      The IP Trick - Working on RS and MU
      Alternatively, it seems possible for the site to be accessed via the direct IP address of the servers, cutting out the DNS servers.
      So far the tried and tested ones are 195.122.131.46 for Rapidshare.com and 209.222.148.136 for Megaupload.com.
      So a rapidshare link would become
      and a Megaupload link would be
      The following are the IP Addresses to the other filesharing sites in the above list for you to try with the IP trick.
      They have not yet been tested, so if you try them, please state here whether they worked for you or not.

      Code:
      www.Hotfile.com - 74.120.8.75
      www.2Shared.com - 208.43.81.133
      www.Depositfiles.com - 80.208.23.35
      www.Sharingmatrix.com - 85.17.226.209
      www.Turbobit.net - 188.72.243.99
      www.Hotshare.net - 64.20.51.114
      www.Filesurf.ru - 87.249.29.19
      www.Uploading.com - 88.85.70.9
      This trick does not appear to work with Zshare or Multiupload.

      The Host File Trick - Working on RS and MU
      If you use an auto-downloader, such as FlashGet, JDownloader on DownThemAll! this may help you.
      Open up the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file and at the bottom, add each of these lines that applies to you.
      Code:
      195.122.131.46 rapidshare.com
      209.222.148.136 megaupload.com
      Now when you visit
      Code:
      http://www.rapidshare.com/filename
      it should work for you straight away

      If you use an autodownloader with megaupload, you may need to remove the beginning "www." from the start of each of the links. This is easily done using notepad.
      Go to Edit->Replace... and in the new window, type "www." into the Find What: box, and leave the Replace With: box blank, then put these new links into your autodownloader and the files should then work.

      Here is the repeated untestedlist for use with Host File trick adjusted for direct copying into the host file.
      Again, please confirm whether these do or do not work if you try them, so you can help others.
      Code:
      74.120.8.75 Hotfile.com
      208.43.81.133 2Shared.com
      80.208.23.35 Depositfiles.com
      85.17.226.209 Sharingmatrix.com
      188.72.243.99 Turbobit.net
      64.20.51.114 Hotshare.net
      87.249.29.19 Filesurf.ru
      88.85.70.9 Uploading.com
      Credits
      This is merely a collation of other helpful tips and tricks through this thread, and others that NewsreadeR helpfully quoted near the beginning of the thread. I have verified as much information as I can, but take no credit for the original tips.
      Thanks to NewsreadeR, invalid, stuie_y2k2, russ555, Man_hunt, Joe_UK, no1Joeno1 for supplying these tips and to Stewjames2000 for the notepad replace tip
      (and apologies AND thanks to anyone else I missed while backtracking through this thread)

      So, for some reason it appears that Sky users are again unable to access certain webpages, for an unknown reason, but it seems to be affecting mainly filesharing sites including, but not excessively:
      Rapidshare
      Megaupload
      Hotfile
      2Shared
      Depositfile
      Sharingmatrix
      Turbobit

      Firstly for Rapidshare, you should be able to access the webpage by substituting the beginning of web address from http:// to https://. This connects you on the SSL secure connection, rather than the regular one and so effectively your link would instead become:
      https://www.rapidshare.com/yourfile
      So far, this does not seem to be able to work with Megaupload, and I don't believe it has been tested as of yet.

      Alternatively, it seems possible for the site to be accessed via the direct IP address of the servers, cutting out the DNS servers.
      So far the tried and tested ones are 195.122.131.46 for Rapidshare.com and 209.222.148.136 for Megaupload.com.
      So a rapidshare link would become
      http://195.122.131.46/filename
      and a Megaupload link would be
      http://209.222.148.136/filename

      If you use an auto-downloader, such as FlashGet, JDownloader on DownThemAll! this may help you.
      Open up the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file and at the bottom, add each of these lines that applies to you.
