      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      At work just now so can't say whether the problem persists but an easy way to use a proxy server to access these sites is to run the Opera browser and enable Opera Turbo.
      I'm not sure it will work to watch videos on megavideo eg. or to upload very big files, but at least it should help people who need to do account maintenance etc on these sites.

      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      Hi guys, had intermittent problems, but wasn't able to get on rapidshare since yesterday, this really helped.

      Just to add, I am a mac user (and I use JDownloader) and I used this link:

      How to edit the hosts file in Mac OS X – Leopard Decoding the Web

      which allowed me to use the host file trick and now it is working fine.

      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      if they are tracing use of the sites.
      It would appear to have been a routing issue. Sky / Easynet have now changed the route to the WWW effectively (by changing suppliers sort of) and so people can now get back to downloading to their hearts are content.

      Thread unstickied for now. We will reinstate if needed to again in future. Many thanks to the OP for taking the time to post all the information.

      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      I rang sky again this morning,told them the problem,1 guy said try in in another browser,atm i use I.E.8 and another guy said type port forwarding in google because one of the ports on the router isnt allowing the connection.
      I have tried the workarounds,works great but im gonna look into this port forwarding.
