      Server addresses?

      Hi All.

      Just had our ageing Thomson box replaced for a new box. Network status shows as "Service connection: FAIL".

      This is probably because we actually have two broadband connections here, but only one is a Sky BB connection. I have a third router linking the LAN and both broadband routers that load-shares connections across both links. I'm assuming that the anytime+ servers don't allow access from a non-sky IP address.

      Question is, therefore, does anybody know what addresses box connects to? I can then set those to always go out on the SkyBB connection..

      (I'm also, with their permission, using a non-sky router on their line.. I hope that's not going to complicate matters further..)

      Thanks.

      Open the port UDP 3700 on the router which you use for Sky Broadband. The ip addresses you are looking for are:

      80.238.12.230
      90.223.224.19
