Hey there,

We've recently been switched over from Orcon Business 100/50 to 200/200 on Callplus and there seems to be some sort of caching nonsense going on that is causing some issues for us, specifically Netflix doesn't seem to be playing nicely and I suspect that it might not be helping. We also do a bit of web development and it's frustrating to see our IP change on some sites. I know on residential Slingshot connections this can be done from the website, but I don't seem to see any option on the Callplus one for this.

The call center person that initially helped me set this up said it wasn't possible to disable, but I just wanted to double check to see if that was actually the case. If so, this is pretty disappointing.

Just to add a "me too". I have asked this question before and been told that it is not possible. Which is a shame as the proxy performs pretty poorly. See below comparison between FTP (not proxied) and HTTP (proxied) downloads from the same server:

# wget
2015-12-16 22:26:45 (15.9 MB/s) - ‘admincd-amd64-20150924.iso’ saved [404750336]

# wget

As of the end of May this year (when we moved to another ISP), it wasn't possible on a Slingshot UFB connection: the option didn't work

Just to update this - not long after my post a very helpful CallPlus engineer was in touch and confirmed that it is possible to disable the cache (and disabled it for me). HTTP performance is much better now.




He was going to update the guys on the helpdesk so they know that is possible.
