Topic # 103366 5-Jun-2012 21:44 Send private message

Hi,

I use this site to download legal files:

http://zombtracker.the-zomb.com/index.php

Also, i'm being blocked from using the tracker so have a couple of files mid-download and uTorrent can not communicate with the tracker.

This started about 2 weeks ago.  I thought that the site must have been down but today checked with someone using Vodafone and they could access it fine so i'm guessing it is Slingshot.

Is there anyway around this?

Thanks.

Just checked, not working for me, Down for all or just me shows it as up and It can be accessed through proxies. I'm using Slingshots DNS Server, A friend of mine who is also with Slingshot can't access the address either. Pinging fails and the site can't be accessed via its ip address either.

I can access the site on Slingshot, for what it's worth.

I can't access it either (AYCE, Slingshot DNS, cache supposedly disabled.)

I'm not on AYCE (150GB with cache on), perhaps that's the difference?

Just got another friend with slingshot to try and access the site with a capped plan and it works for him. Like you said, looks like it's an issue withy only AYCE customers

Thanks for the responses - much appreciated.

My modem is set to get DNS automatically from the ISP.

I'm on a 50GB capped plan.

The trace route gives this:

I don't quite understand what you're saying.

Solved:  I had caching turned off because with it on I couldn't update Origin (required for BF3).  I turned caching back on and i now have access to the site.

Thanks everyone for your input.

Cheers,

Tim

Hi guys,

If you are still having an issue can you please PM me? If resolved, thats great.

Caching is advised to be left on unless there is a specific reason to have it turned off. I.E Web design.

Thanks
Ben
