Hpc Is Being Blocked By My Isp

Recommended Posts

Neither www.housepricecrash.co.uk nor 87.124.92.6 return a ping via my ISP (Plusnet, owned by BT). I can reach this site via a proxy, which is how I am posting. I have had no information from my ISP about web filtering; and note the whole site and not just the forum is unreachable.

I do know that there is a list of mostly men's rights sites blocked by O2/Symantec, but I don't use the O2 network, nor Symantec and I can reach those sites, like www.angryharry.com.

Can anyone point me to another fubra hosted website I can test?

Talktalk blocked HPC as being social media.

Try signing into Plusnet to see if they have started applying parental controls by default.

Nothing about default blocking at all on the Plusnet main page. They do have a downloadable application for Windows for parental control, but I have never downloaded it, besides which I don't use windows.

Facebook and twitter are reachable, so it's not social media. I'll email the support people to find out what is going on.

ed. I notice they now don't have an email for support. You're supposed to either ask their "smart assistant" or phone them.

Thanks. No problems with either of those.

I use Plusnet and haven't had any problems accessing HPC.

I think you might have a local routing issue. Here's what it looks like from my end of t'internet:

It doesn't look a lot different on the last few hops, but no ping response (and no brower access of course) :angry:

Don't worry about the lack of ping responses. I get the same.

You're resolving the host address without problems and the route looks sane.

Can you connect using lynx or telnet on port 80?

What happens if you do ctrl-refresh in your browser?

Thanks, ctrl-F5 did the trick.

The interwebs getting a bit strange these days for me. T'other day I couldn't order some stuff from a merchant I'd used before, because Firefox kept switching http to https and then told me the site was down, took me a day or so to notice what was going on. Then other websites seem to be unavailable, for no apparent reason, like HPC. Just now, I couldn't reach the main HPC page lead story on http://iacknowledge.net, kept insisting "connection refused". That was via the proxy - if I switch the proxy off, I can reach it. This was at the time I couldn't read the HPC page without the proxy, so I had to cut and paste the link between browsers, one with a proxy set up and one without. Very peculiar and annoying.

sounds like you may be hijacked.

Malware scan immediately just in case.

Superantispyware, malwarebytes or Hitman Pro....get then all from Cnet, careful that you dont get some other "presents" from the download mirror, or from the manufacturers websites.

When I migrated to EE we had a problem with this site coming back with blank pages most of the time.

This turned out to be because of something called "Carrier Grade NAT" which this site doesn't tolerate along with some others e.g. those behind paywalls.

This was the thread and the resolution:

http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=193847

PlusNet were trialling CGNAT at one point. I believe it was possible, at that time, to opt out of that.

If that's the issue - may not be.

Thanks for that. Interesting thread, bookmarked for future reference.

HPC is sometimes blocked on Mobile networks. Orange used to block it, and you had to get the pr0n filter lifted to view and post. :lol:

Can only think it was off topic posts back in racier times.

Oh I think we have rather a bawdy sense of humour here! Very British.
