Re: Strange issue connecting to certain sites (esp Dropbox)

Good to know I'm not going crazy :)

Hopefully this is resolved before too long!

Strange issue connecting to certain sites (esp Dropbox)

I first noticed something was amiss when I couldn't download apps from Apple's App Store over my Exetel link this morning (but could over 3G/LTE). Then I noticed that Dropbox hadn't been connecting all day, on any of my computers (Mac, PC, Linux). I can't even browse to www.dropbox.com. Nor can I pi...

Exetel SMTP server blacklisted

Couldn't send email as per this listing:

http://www.uceprotect.net/en/rblcheck.p ... 0.233.0.17

Presumably an Exetel client has been naughty ;)

Re: Invalid PDF

Thanks for that. It didn't occur to me to try another format (I've used other online faxing services with Epson Scan PDF's before), so I'll most likely go that way rather than persisting with PDF scans!

Invalid PDF

Hi, I set up Email2Fax for the first time today, and attempted to send a fax using eXeFAX on Windows. I submitted a PDF generated by Epson Scan, and got the following response: Dear Customer, Unfortunately, your Email to Fax request to fax number 1300XXXXXX on 14-1-2011 at 14:05:00 has failed due to...

Can't access http://www.formspring.me/ plus other issues

I'm seeing this error on attempting to access the above URL: 403 Forbidden nginx/0.7.64 I know others with other ISP's aren't seeing this, so I'm guessing Exetel operates nginx as a transparent proxy, and that it's borking on the URL for some reason. Is anyone else seeing this? I've also noticed int...

Re: Adelaide Outage

My mum's internet (Exetel ADSL2 in Adelaide) is broken at the moment too.

Weirdly, Skype is working, but as far as I can tell remotely, DNS resolution isn't working, so everything else she tries to do isn't working.

Re: IP Address change - Discussion

Is your email server using the IP address of your ADSL service? Yes What Jokiin said is correct, that is what you will need to do. What NetworkAdmin and Jokiin didn't mention is that due to DNS delays, there will inevitably be a period (up to 48 hours) during which your mail server will not be visi...

Re: IP Address change - Discussion

I'm pretty annoyed about this. Very annoyed, actually. Not only do I have various DNS records pointing at my current address, I also have a number of clients using IP-based ACL's to grant me access to their systems, and quite frankly, "my ISP is cleaning out its sock drawer" is a lame reason for me...

Re: I cannot access ANY websites except this one

I agree, Corey ... But threads were locked and consolidated into an announcement thread, where discussions continued before it also was locked, and user-contributed info subsequently deleted. End result? No threads where discussion around the issue could continue. I'm all for consolidation, but not ...

Re: I cannot access ANY websites except this one

Sending this to the Exetel boyz: Hi, I'm sure you're aware that the ADSL connectivity issues supposedly "resolved" earlier this afternoon have not, in fact, been resolved. You may not be aware, however, that DylanF is hell-bent on making it impossible for users to discuss the outage and provide upda...

Re: I cannot access ANY websites except this one

Same trouble here.

Can't even connect to this site; I'm here via dial-up.

It seems Dylan is hell-bent on locking all threads discussing it, however ...

Hope it's resolved soon.

Re: International Problem?

Connecting locally is fine - but international sites keep dropping in and out. Been happening all afternoon Anyone else? Definitely had some intermittent issues here. Haven't been able to isolate them yet. Whole connection is dropping out in my case. Only for a few seconds, but enough to be annoying.
