Giganews


[link to this post]
 
Any funnies going on tonight with Sky blocking Giganews that anyone's aware of?

I can't connect to the European server from my newsreader, I can tracert from my PC to Giganews but a reverse trace from giganews appears to getting blocked at Sky - both the US and Euro servers.

Are you using the encrypted port?

I've tried both ports on my newsreader (usually use 119) with no joy. Everything was fine last night.

I think the problem is more if I try a reverse trace, i.e. from Giganews website back to me, it stops as soon as it hits Sky's servers. So the HTML part of the site is o.k. but not the NNTP part.

Hang on, call off the search laugh

Things have suddenly kicked back into life - the reverse trace is still getting blocked but my newsreader is currently getting its headers (on 119)

I'm seeing giganews blocked too, using secure 443. Traceroute also fails, after
bu4.gr10.telon.uk.easynet.net [89.200.135.145]

easynews is working, so it's not a protocol block. They must just have it in for gn.
