      Just wondered if the user has the sky broadband shield turned on.
      I would say the category stopping this access under the broadband shield would probably be 'Anonymizers, File-sharing and Hacking'.

      There is not a problem with using RDP or VNC on sky through their sr routers.

      I do not use any of Sky's soft / bloatware.

      Respectfully, you are wrong. There are plenty of issues with VNC and port forwarding in general on Sky's excuse for a group of routers. I've been reading about this pretty much solidly for the last few days. Furthermore, I assume you are talking about only your own experience when you say 'There is not a problem with...' as there is no way for you to know the status for all Sky users.

      There were several others from the official Sky forum as well but I lost them since clearing my history and I really don't want to go back and read the depressing posts on that board.

      In any case, thank you for your observation regarding Sky Shield.

      I will probably be moving to a proper ISP like Aquiss in due course. I just wish I could get this working in the interim. Here's the funny thing, I would happily give Sky the 37 p/m for fibre that I'll end up giving to another ISP if their service actually worked, speeds were good (mine are appalling), customer support existed and hardware / firmware wasn't thrown together by a nine year old. They seem to be totally oblivious or at least nonchalant about the fact that they lose customers so easily. Then again, maybe they don't care and generate most of their revenue from Sky TV.
