PIPEX users (Manchester area) Can U assist please?

Found 17th Nov 2007
I feel there might be a proxy problem at Pipex' side of things, because I keep getting this message when I access rapidshare.com/en/…tml (and all other rapidshare links).


A tracert to rapidshare.com shows a timeout at lr02.hx2.bb.pipex.net

If I put a "www." before "rapidshare" I can access the site (and all links to files) but the site doesn't quite show up properly although I can download files, eventually.

So could I ask anyone using Pipex in the Manchester area to try rapidshare.com/en/…tml the above link and let me know what shows up for you please?

I've emailed Pipex tech support but don't want to wait 48 hours for a reply, which probably wouldn't answer the query anyway.

I'm on Bulldog Manchester, but i am sure it's now part of pipex.
I've clicked on the link you sent, and all seemed fine
Took a screen shot of the .zip file they suggest you check the status off and uploaded the pic, back to rapidshare for you

Not sure if that's what you wanted.....if not, ask and i'll try
Thanks fore the reply boydent999

Here's what happened when I clicked your link


See my problem?

I can open the jpeg if I change your URL though, but thanks anyway
You changed any proxy settings on your pc by any chance?
Is there any other test i can do?

It's not my PC.

Like you I use Firefox and the same happens using IE. Not only that, but it's the same on my backup PC (WinXP), backup laptop (WinXP) and main laptop (Vista Home), tested using FF and IE.


Is there any other test i can do?

I don't think so, unless you have time to do a tracert to RS and see if you travel through the same hops as I do

Start > Run then type tracert rapidshare.com


Thanks again
Just tried that, but:

a) I don't go down the pipex trace, it's bdsl
b) i don't get a trace complete, so i keep running it, but the dos window disappears.....
I'll grab a screen grab before it ends.....
There is a bit more once it's run to what is my screen grab, but it does to frankfurt mind...

Listen, thanks very much for your help. It's almost certainly a proxy reroute in the pipex network.

I have to go offline now. I've the daunting task of photographing Katie Price at Derby House Saddlery :oops:

Later :roll:
Ok Hope you get sorted, not with Katie mind lol
Thanks mate. Rep left. I never realised how short KP actually is.. still, the 2 hours queuing were worth it for the look on my lass's face

... It's almost certainly a proxy reroute in the pipex network...

Actually now looking more and more like the front-end at rapidshare.com. I've dropped them a line and expect a reply shortly.

In the meantime are there any other Pipex members who could try the link I posted in the OP please? See what you get?
