[Extreme Plus] Nzbmatrix.Com blocked?

Can anyone else on Rogers confirm if they are being blocked from accessing Nzbmatrix.Com?

if i VPN out i can still hit it.

effing rogers...

Works here. I'd suspect you're using Rogers own DNS servers which are notoriously unreliable.

I'm able to resolve with no issues with either Rogers or Googles DNS servers but web calls just result in SYN sent and no reply.

I can't reach the server, either. It stopped working a few days ago. I can access the site fine if I tether over my TELUS phone.

thx Kibosh for the nfo

i'm just not leaving the rogers network.
69.63.249.37 is the farthest i can go

wondering if it's just certain segments for now.

ideas on next steps?

worth calling and asking wtf?

or just deal



Sameprob

@rogers.com

It's been unreachable for me for 2 days... I would call if I knew how to even explain the problem to rogers tech support. I'm probably just going to wait and see for a few more days.

Pretty frustrating, will post any updates...



bah

@rogers.com

I have tried soft and hard resets of my modem, dns flushes and a factory reset.. Perhaps a coincidence, but I hit 75% bandwidth usage this month and (call me paranoid), maybe Rogers looked into where the bandwidth is going, from the usenet to the content source? Just floating ideas.



bradley87

@rogers.com

I too am unable to access the site for a few days now. This could be a routing problem with Rogers. I highly doubt the site has been blocked. I have experienced many odd issues like this with Rogers in the past. I was unable to connect to an online video game for a week because there was a routing issue with Rogers to that particular location.

I cannot reach it with rogers mississauga, I do get dns resolution and can ping, 85.24.138.81.

went I do an ethernet capture, there is no return packets from 85.24.138.81 for http but ok for icmp packets.

If a VPN into the US, it works fine.
