      Both sites are working now, but the download links still respond very very slow, most of them don't really work

      Having the same issue here:
      HTTP 500 - Internal Server Error

      What is the exact cause of this, and the methodology of bypassing it?

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Found a workaround, add an "s" to http for all your download links eg:

      http://www.rapidshare.com/whatever.zip
      becomes
      https://www.rapidshare.com/whatever.zip

      It is a generic error meaning that you can't connect to the server you are trying to.

      You can get more information by going to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, scroll down and untick 'Show friendly error messages'.

      Unhappy Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Hi,
      I'm having the same problem with Rapidshare and may be able to offer some help/advice.
      Firstly I am a Network Engineer and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, not that I'm boasting but to give you a background into my being able to understand the problem.
      1. I contacted Sky broadband about 45 minutes ago to ask them to do a route trace to Rapidshare, they said they couldnt as using a Lynux system ( so, why cant do a trace ?), and said they are not blocking anyone from any site.
      2. loaded a rout trace and lo and behold the http port 80 ( normal website traffic is being filtered out by a project called "The Filter Project" on Easynet who sky piggyback their connection on to. Losses of connection is between 25% and 100% thats why sometimes you can connect and othertimes not. Using the SSL is probably the easy way round at the moment.
      There is another way though, in the hosts file in \windows\system32\drivers\etc\ folder add the following to the end of the list and saveit and this will go through to rapidshare without adding the SSL or https in:-

      80.239.151.250 rapidshare.com # ssl.rapidshare.com


      You can download visualroute (a little Gem of a program) and use it free for 15 days from VisualRoute traceroute: connection test, trace IP address, IP trace, IP address locations

      I phoned easynet network support up about 20 minutes ago who wouldt talk to me as they say Sky is fobbing me off and Sky need to investigate the problem.

      Now the problem is this:-
      Easynet are filtering out (so I have found out in last 15 minutes from friends) certain websites, logitimate or not under the governments incentive to stop pirating software and neither easynet nor sky want to do anything against the governments initiative.

      I use Rapidshare for legitimate purposes and now think that I will take this further to the minister for communications after trying sky once more, (not much hope of help because I dont think the Braodband support are 100% up to the job

      Problem and solution traced and pinpointed in about 15-20 minutes but not much hope of taking on the governments dictatorship in getting the problem fixed, I think it will only get worse.

      Hope this helps.

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      I really hope this isn't the case because 3 days ago I extended my Rapidshare account by 12 months.

      Rapidshare was working perfectly fine up until a few days ago.

      VisualRoute

      Regards,
      John
