Anyone know how to get this working now?
Seems the above links aren't working anymore...
BT Wholesale updated their code to reduce this, I know they use to ban my IP after I used to check 50K lines over a couple of days LOL.
But if you are checking just the one line every hour you "should" be fine, but be aware BT Wholesale state you are not allowed to use macros or any automation scripts when using their resources (i.e. checker)
3. Use of the Site
This Site is a user interface; it is not designed for managing automated process such as macros and robots that input volume transactions over short periods of time. If you have a requirement to transact with BT Wholesale in this way, please contact your Account Manager.
If BT becomes aware that you are using the Site in this way, BT may suspend or block access to the Site or any area of the Site without notice.
And before you ask, no you cannot get an account with them to do bulk checks, I have already tried LOL.
I almost got one until the realised I wasn't an ISP LOL
But if you are wondering how to do it now days, then you will need to have your code / script do multiple web queries to get the information you require.
Basically you will have your script act like a browser and do all the queries correctly or BTW will block your request and possibly end up blocking your IP.
And if you keep changing your IP and continue to run the script you run the risk of being contacted by your ISP due to them being moaned at by BT Wholesale.
This happened to me a couple of times about a year ago.
But yeah its still doable, I can if I wanted to write a Windows Desktop App, or a script on Linux to do all the requests every hour, its the same with getting all the information from BTOR's Where and When Page, its not that hard to do if you know what your doing.
This is a video of one of my old scripts accessing the Where and When Page and it still worked the last time I checked.
Openreach Checker Application (for demonstration purposes only)
Also don't ask for the code, I have been told not to give it out, sorry.
Basically if a web browser can do it then so can a script, if you know what you are doing that is.
