      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      Well routing problem, my foot, it is the defective proxy filtering most of the file hosting sites only hotfile.com sendspace.com .depositfiles.com where working earlier today ,
      megaupload.com Rapidshare.com remain blocked following a short time yesterday when they where accessible by normal means directly,As for opening a port on your router, unless port 80 is blocked then that is incorrect info here's the filter details that is blocking rapidshare.com px1.bllon.uk.easynet.net [212.134.155.195] don't belive me, Google it ! there is several ip's in this range, it has also have reference in this forum,

      As this has been a problem for several years at least, Easynet have not done anything about it and wont,they know full well what the problem is, it's either use a vpn/proxy to bypass it or, complain en mass and hope they change their minds and fix it or turn it off, or you can get yer mac code and got elsewhere

      your complaint's should be directed to easynet, sky will just fob you off

      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      As a test I entered a link into RS this morning and got a pop-up stating the content was copyright material and redirected me to a web site to buy the material I tried to download!!

      Its still a beta site as it doesn't work either - me thinks this is Rapidshare's developing business model - host all sorts of stuff and redirect to a shop front once advised of copyrighted material!

      They have had this for months, it only switches you to the new site if the link has ben reported, It makes Rapidshare look good.

      Re: Issues With Rapidshare? Try these Workarounds

      Hey, just found this site. I notice from the end of last week that Imagebam.com (an image hosting site) wasn't working as I use a number of fashion forums like thefashionspot.com, which are understandably image heavy and I've not been able to access the site for days.

      Realised that rapidshare is the same too and found this thread.

      Seems like the same thing, so add ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing onto the list. What a joke!

      Well, it at the end of the day is pointless,I remember not that long ago they blocked the content delivery service for speedtest.net/pingtest.net as a result both pages could no longer load,as this content provider provides the data stream/bandwidth globally for speedtest.net, the actual address they blocked was cdn.speedtest.net/pingtest.net and a tracert shows that that belongs to edgecastcdn.net [93.184.221.133] which is what was blocked,why? mystery there no logical explanation for that one,also i have known tinypic.com too be blocked also

      RS is working for now anyway,
      However, 'www.megaupload.com' wont work, but with the host file workaround, 'megaupload.com' does work, the host file workaround didn't work for RS though.

      I called ukonline yesterday (which is same as easynet/sky) and I was told its something to do with updated lists from the IWF. It should be resolved in the next couple of days
