      Re: Sky Cache Servers playing up

      Ok here's how you can find out

      Angel Heart (1987) Torrents | Torrent Butler

      This site is blocked by ISP's in the UK but using Google's DNS should unlock it

      I don't torrent, this is just for testing purposes to see if your ISP is hijacking Google's DNS

      Anybody know of any other way of testing? This is just for testing purposes....

      Just testing another site using only Google's DNS https://isohunt.to/

      Testing South Park Clip

      Yep legitimately bypasses these blocks... Google's DNS alone.... no VPN required


      Are you guys able to?

      Are you guys sure the ISP is hijacking custom DNS? I've read people say the same stuff about BT, but if they were.... it bypasses these blocks for me... no trying to trick me to thinking using Google's DNS by saying "Court has ordered Google to block this" or something.

      Edit...

      Maybe you're just doing it wrong...

      In IPv4 box put 8.8.8.8 top and 8.8.4.4 bottom... hit ok and then refresh and restart your browser. Then it'll let you into this site https://isohunt.to/

      For now it might work as they check in order, now lookup a nonexistent domain (qwertytytre.tld or something) with nslookup and see if the google dns are the only ips queried or if it still asks sky as well even though you've set google. Maybe mine was leaky BECAUSE I hadnt configured all of ddwrt. I don't always use the vpn portion but it's useful to be able to encrypt my data so sky's dpi can't snoop.

      Sky Cache Servers playing up-cmd-dns.jpg

      Tried via command prompt. Are you seeing Sky's DNS on there or something when you do it the normal way?

      Dunno why people are having probs with BT though... if it's for torrents then it does unblock them all

      Re: Sky Cache Servers playing up

      Looks like you are fine there, I think my router was the problem as it was using sky as well when the two dns entries I had put in failed on the bogus nslookup. As I said It's a useful guide if you use ddwrt, as by default (at least on my asus router) it ignored client dns settings. Now on IPleak and similar I'm all tight and ninja looking.

      Re: Sky Cache Servers playing up

      How to test if your ISP is trying to fake test results on a site to suggest that there is no throttling going on

      Make sure line speeds are good at all hours of the day

      Go to this site Glasnost: Test if your ISP is shaping your traffic

      Just your normal connection... no DNS or VPN use

      Say youtube is buffering a lot, your service to youtube sucks a lot

      Run a test on Glasnost: Test if your ISP is shaping your traffic and whilst the test is running fire up a youtube video and see how the video plays

      A test to see if your ISP is trying to forge results on sites... if your ISP suddenly widens the pipe to youtube during test until test is finished.

      Edit...

      P2P gaming can be tested this way too... if your 1000ms lag spikes suddenly... poof... stop whilst test is in progress
