[NSFW] PornHub IWF

Anyone else getting the 'error - connection reset' message, generated by Squid cache via the IWF (Internet Watch Foundation) proxy when trying to access PornHub?

Indeed, rather annoying. Having to use a VPN for just now, Plusnet "Protect" seems to be off.

Annoying, but completely pointless. Either VPN or (better and lightweight) a DNS proxy, like the one I put together for Netflix, but which works equally as well for getting around these arbitrary blocks:

Surely this can't be an intentional blanket ban. Aren't they already complying with rules with Plusnet Protect? If it was a specified ban, why are other websites not blocked?

I wonder if any of you are going through BT Retail routing on your current PPP session. That was the cause of some being blocked from Pirate Bay a year or so ago.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Can confirm this is the case. Doubt it'll get fixed any time soon due to lack of complaints

I had the same problem, What i found is that even though the filter was turned off there were certain categories set to be blocked, once i turned them off there were no longer any blocks
