Re: Strange SMTP issue

Good to hear that the cause of your email issues have been located though and good luck resolving it from here. McAfee could detect but not remove the Trojan. TrendMicro Housecall could not detect it. Avast detected and removed it on a boot up scan following install and restart. Now I can send in O...

Re: Strange SMTP issue

Could it be an outgoing firewall on the network interface? Or a third party anti-virus / internet security program intercepting only the ethernet outgoing packets? Could it be a setting (outgoing firewall) in your ADSL modem, as the 3 Mobile broadband would bypass your modem. This work laptop doesn...

Strange SMTP issue

Hoping someone can help with an extremely frustrating issue I am facing. I utilise AN email service provided with my domain hosting with SolidInternet. Several other people in my household use email on the same server with the same domain without this issue. Basically when I try and send via SMTP at...

Re: Stealing Other People's Property

What does Usenet cost per license? If Exetel could offer an unlimited Usenet account below A$15 a month I would take it up. If the traffic didn't count towards quota, or was discounted (eg 2GB Usenet counts as 1GB quota) this would make the deal even sweeter. As previously noted several Australian ...

Re: Possible New ADSL2 Plans For New Financial Year

Perhaps others don't view the merits as significant as overviewer and I. There are many possibilities for pricing structures but looking at it a little more, the Exetel plans already enable you to switch between them each month for nil cost anyway, so I suppose this already caters for the individua...

Re: New customer, not happy

But back to my point about pathetic download speeds using P2P. I have a couple of torrents with thousands of peers, plenty of seeds, private trackers, you name it etc. During 'off-peak' forget about getting full-speed downloads, forget about getting half speeds, hell forget about getting a third of...

Re: New Exetel customer what happens to Telstra bill?

Telstra will refund any unused portion of the funds. Cheers, Mike I doubt they will refund it, they will credit it, meaning the original poster will have a credit with a company they no longer have a commercial relationship with. Persoanlly I would pay the connection fee and work out how much of th...

Re: Possible New ADSL2 Plans For New Financial Year

Perhaps Exetel think every 1Gb increase in the 28Gb plans will lead to almost all of it being utilised (i.e. people who sign up for 28Gb expect to use the majority of it, most months) vs every 1 Gb increase in 16Gb plans only leads to a quarter of it being utilised (i.e. a substantial portion of 16...

Re: Possible New ADSL2 Plans For New Financial Year

We have slightly increased the download allowances on all ADSL2 plans (inctelephone and naked) from 1st June. This is not a complaint, just a question born from curiosity... why are some of the increases to lower end plans higher in both real and relative terms. My naked plan has gone from 28GB to ...

Re: Possible New 'ADSL1' Plans For New Financial Year

Perhaps they prefer the known reliable service wholesaled by Telstra as opposed to other services which allegedly suffer from provisioning, fault resolution and backhaul issues.

There is also the issue of waiving the CSG to get ADSL2+ on Optus infrastructure.

It's off topic, but Fair Play doesn't exist anymore.

Re: Installing NAS on home network

What issues are you having? Assuming you have purchased a NAS package it should have a manual with step by step instructions. If you still can't get it working, try posting the NAS model and specific issues. If you are trying to install and configure something like NASLite that is a different matter.

Re: NNTP Speed issues

James This is not an issue isolated to my connection. In the previous thread it was stated by an exetel employee: "The Newsgroup traffic is currently misclassified as P2P. We will open a case with our provider. " There were several work arounds depending on which Usenet provider, I simply changed to...
