      Rapidshare - IP blocked?

      Hi,

      I've started getting the message ERROR : IP blocked when I click to download a file from Rapidshare.

      Strange thing is I can browse to Rapidshare.com no problems at all it's just when I click download links.

      Anyone know why this is happening?

      I read a few threads and saw that you could try changing the beginning of the address to https://ssl.rapidshare....... and it worked.

      Strange I wonder what is going on?

      Hey, I tried this morning to use RS and I got the same thing, I've noticed if you do do the SSL thing at the beginning it works, but I personally think they're blocking people from downloading using RS or something worse... who knows...

      Sky don't block websites. I'd say its something on the site itself.

      I don't get why Rapidshare would block me - I have a premium account...

      They can surely block your IP from downloading though?
      Who knows, I'll wait and see if I recieve a letter from them in the week lol.

      If it was Rapidshare they would just delete or suspend the account wouldn't they?

      Why would you expect a letter?

      They usually send letters if you've been caught downloading or whatever, as far as I know of anyway. Apparantly it could be rapidshare if you use a third party download tool, like I used RSdownloader to download multiple files. Who knows, give it a few days and see what happens.

      I think it might be a DNS issue actually. I've just pinged rapidshare.com to get the IP address then replaced the "rapidshare.com" with the IP address and it worked fine. No need for the ssl stuff.
