Re: ACT outage - multiple suburbs

Thanks for that. Sync issues now resolved with a port exchange. Next on the hit list is problems with high latency/packet loss. Any thoughts? Nothing being downloaded at the time. --- 220.233.0.3 ping statistics --- 38 packets transmitted, 36 packets received, 5.3% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max...

ACT outage - multiple suburbs

Hi guys. It has been two days with a combination of slow sync speeds, data transfer rates and frequent dropouts. I am aware that there are multiple suburbs affected, but wanted to be sure that mine was being investigated too please. Thanks.

Re: Is Exetel's Ironport Spam Filter still effective?

Ok. So while we wait for the kit, is it still worthwhile sending the spam to Spam@exetel.com.au or is it currently a waste of time?

Re: Is Exetel's Ironport Spam Filter still effective?

Dear Exetel,

This is taking a surprising amount of time, considering we are all paying for this service.

Regards,

Re: Is Exetel's Ironport Spam Filter still effective?

Hi there, Exetel. Any updates? It's over a month since this issue was raised, and the spam is still coming in. Are you any closer to a fix? I am still diligently sending in the spam to spam@exetel.com.au but it feels like a waste of time.

Thanks.

pop3.act.exemail.com.au is down

Hi there. The ACT mail server (pop3.act.exemail.com.au) appears to be down. NSW, Qld etc pop3s are returning pings, but not my beloved ACT. Could someone please have a look?

Thanks!

ADSL down!

Hi there. I was wondering if someone could please help me out? ADSL down all day. Left it while at work, hoping it would resolve itself. Noppe. Did a port reset (router off and RJ45 unplugged for about 1.5 hours) but still no luck. There don't seem to be reported outages in ACT. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Re: Outage in ACT?

Thanks! Working again - sweet sweet contact with the outside world. It was off for 5 minutes or so. Made no difference whatsoever.

So what was the problem?

Re: Outage in ACT?

Hi guys. This is a little frustrating. Second time in less than a month - no problem with the modem, no change to my setup. Power cycled the modem, but still stuck with no access to anything offshore. It seems Exetel.com.au works, as do some parts of smh.com.au and ebay.com.au, but it seems that off...

Re: Outage in ACT?

Thanks Steve! It worked! Is this the best way to resolve issues like this in the future? I wasn't sure it was worth lodging a fault ticket. I don't suppose there is anything else I can do from my end?

Outage in ACT?

Hi there. Since early this morning, I have had no access to the Internet beyond Exetel services including mail servers. Nothing is mentioned on planned maintenance, although the up/down data graphs for NSW via Optus seem to have bottomed out, and are yet to be restored. Is there an outage? I was jus...
