Re: [CA] Cox blocking torrent sites...

I think we have ruled out that Cox is blocking torrent sites. Those are just flaky sites that go up and down on a whim.

No, that hasn't been ruled out since I can connect to torrentcrazy.com through my verizon 4g connection, I can connect to it from my work computer, I can connect to it through my at&t 4g connection and most other wireless connections outside of cox. As a matter of fact, I just did a brand new install of windows 7 on this computer that I'm typing on right now and I can't access it through cox either. There is nothing loaded on this machine except for internet explorer. At this point, I have to assume that cox is either blocking it or rerouting it into a black hole somewhere.

Not a DNS or routing issue.

Or torrentcrazy.com is blocking Cox, some or all of their IP blocks. Meanwhile I'm seeing the exact same thing (page won't load) using Clearwire. I think it is on TC's end.

That would certainly be interesting to note that TC might be blocking itself from these blocks of ip's. I wonder if it's intentional. Certainly interesting.
