Can anyone else on a vodafone/IHUG internet connection access www.mininova.org ?

I just get page timeouts - I can access it fine on my work PC (telstraclear) but not at home.

Cue johnr to tell you that Vodafone does not censor the internet.

(Not sure what expletives, emoticons or punctuation he might use on this one).

Likely to be some sort of temporary routing issue upstream or temporary DNS issue or whatever.

tracert?

I'll jump in before John does.

Vodafone does not block/restrict/limit Mininova.

Cheers

YES Vodafone blocks every single port on the inter webs your ports are ALL ours

Have you tried a trace route from your home connection to www.mininova.org?

This is why I love geekzone - Thanks for all the replies. I wasnt accusing Vodafone - just wasnt sure what else might have been causing it... Sounds like its now gone to a support issue (for me).

I didnt initially mention that I can ping it (returns 87.233.147.140) which I believe is correct.

Here is the tracert for www.mininova.org:

Tracing route to mininova.org [87.233.147.140]

over a maximum of 30 hops:


1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 10.1.1.1
2 46 ms 39 ms 40 ms lo1.akl-grafton-bras1.ihug.net [203.109.128.90]

12 333 ms 334 ms 335 ms so-1-0-0.mpr1.ams1.nl.above.net [64.125.27.186] 
13 334 ms 333 ms 334 ms xe-3-0-0.er1.ams1.nl.above.net [64.125.28.94]

15 354 ms 360 ms 356 ms 10ge-6-3.e600-2.ams7.true.nl [87.233.192.18] 
16 349 ms 349 ms 349 ms www.mininova.org [87.233.147.140] 

Trace complete.

My DNS settings are 203.109.129.67 and 203.109.253.43 (also tried an opendns server just for the hell of it). No difference - but then ping is resolving the IP.

I disabled the windows XP firewall and still no go.

The web browser (I have tried ie8, Opera 10 and Google chrome) all just hang there trying to connect - they all work fine on anything else I have tried.

I have Avira antivir - I tried deactivating the real time guard - no difference.

 

The message from ie (for many minutes) is "Waiting for http://www.mininova.org".

 

Maybe something in my router/modem blocking it - cant think what???????

Well I guess I have to take it all back (Sorry Vodafone).

I had a quick peak at my modem settings - didnt change anything at all, but decided to do a reboot anyway (the turn it off and back on fix attempt) and now its working!

Very odd - it just decided to shoot down one site!!! ????

Thanks anyway - maybe I should have tried the power switch first!
