If you are still with Comcast... be sure to read the fine print on your recent billings. It appears that this meassage was NOT prominent.
Sneaky bastards

I came very close to switching to ATT this week until I read their user agreement. It's way to long to print out, but it's buried on their website if anyone wants to look.

Legally speaking, it looked even worse than Comcrap's and they also use sandvining. I am told that ATT's technology is much easier to bypass, though.

Where I live right now, those are the only 2 choices, and I just can't wait to move to a place I don't have to use either!

Perhaps tomorrow I'll start that thread in the Lounge
I'm way too tired at the moment to drag all that shit out.

Re: sandvine workaround

So who's tried this and does it work?

I'm using it right now, and it DOES work. The only limitation is that I also have to use encryption as well, and I can only connect to other people that are using it.

Before, when I finished d/ling a show, all my torrents went "blue" (in Azureus) once I finished downloading. I could no longer upload anything to anyone. Now I can seed and upload to encrypted peers. The encrypted peers that aren't being sandvined can seed to the people not using encryption.

It's not quite as smooth as before, but I've successfully seeded 2 shows to Dime this week. Yeah I said the "d" word, but I needed to try this out with a larger swarm size.

excellent! Glad to hear that a workaround actually works. I've been getting some really crappy newsgroups speeds lately and I'm starting to wonder if it might be some kind of sandivine type blocking. And I don't use Comcrap.

Yes it really does

Just 2 things:

1. Follow the original link that Lynn posted in the thread. It did not copy & paste right for me

2. The last command - "net stop ipfw & net start ipfw"

Must be entered right into Windows. Start-> run-> (type) cmd
When the black screen comes up, just type that in without the quotes & you're good to go.

Is Windows Vista your OS by chance (I hope, I hope)?

Sorry, I should have mentioned I'm using Windows XP.

Please make sure you read the directions instead of just copy/paste. You need to change the port number they use there for your specific case.
I tried doing that last night, and it completely fucked up my internet connection. I had to use Windows System Restore to get things back to normal. Just a warning to anyone who may try and do this.

I'm sorry to hear that Lou. It's always a good idea to back up your data and make sure you make a new restore point before you go installling any new programs.

Because I don't know what your OS is, whether you are using a router/firewall
or how you went about installing it, I can't figure out what happened in your case. Everyone's mileage may vary on this. Are you being sandvined by Comcast or another Company?

I have another very simple solution for a internet provider that begins with 'A' and ends with 'T'. It does not involve any new software installation and I imagine would work with any OS platform.

If anyone wants to know that, please pm me! I just don't want them to get wise to this and start using using stronger technology like Comcrap's.
