    Just incase anyone was worried orcon was blocking websites such as
    www.suprnova.org. They said they are not blocking any sites, but the
    new ip's assigned to orcon for bitstream customers are a new range so
    some routers/websites are filtering them believing they are not coming
    from a legitimate isp.

    This will be taken care of :)

    Select each one until you find one that connects.

    to UBS.

    Anyone know how long this will??? And will all websites give access
    again at the same time?

    there are a lot that ain't, that is why I was wondering, I couldn't
    find any ETA on orcons web site.

  10. You'd think they would post something about it. I only knew it was the
    same old damn problem because it happened when I moved to Jetsurf some
    months ago.

  11. This is not a problem with Orcon Specificlly (we are not blocking the
    sites).. Just a few sites/networks are very slow in updating their Bogon
    Filters with netblocks which have been allocated a long time ago.

    The best thing to do is for Users to Email the owners of the websites and
    ask for them to check their network filters (and for them to contact their
    Downstream Internet Provider as well) to check this out.

    I have emailed about 10 places this week and a few have updated their
    network filters which they should of done a long time ago. (yes embarrasing
    for them)

    Ironiclly.. the largest request was for access to suprnova.org.. One of the
    largest sites to gain access to illegal material from.

    I tried emailing the guy who runs http://www.vidiot.com but he says
    that he is not blocking it. So I guess it must be his web hoster..
    Now who knows how to find that out..??

  13. He must know who his ISP/Webhosting customer is.. he should contact him and
    then his downstream and go from there..

    Overall this is very very poor service from Orcon & Telecom. Before
    allocating IP address to end users both companies sure ensure they
    work with mainstream web sites, and I'm sure suprnova is a good
    example to be thrown around as people want access to, but there are
    many other websites that are being blocked, it's just not expectable
    to treat customers this way…
    Toxickiwi, Nov 8, 2004
  17. There are millions of websites in the world. So far I think we've had about
    only 10 websites people cannot get to.
    including suprnova. These ranges where bogons over 18 months ago and some
    system admins put in blocks of Bogon's and never update them.

    static ips suck arse i just want dynamic ips back, why should us the
    customer chase down webmasters trying to unban certain ips.

    Toxickiwi Guest

    And how many of those 'millions' were checked, not many I would
    guess... the service from Telecons is bullshit... last time I checked
    tucows still wasn't working, but since most people only go to a
    handfull of sites they won't report any problems. The other problem
    is if a site is down you normally don't think it is your ISP's
