Rogers and Servers

Do they go after all servers, or just those with high bandwidth?

Even if it's 500,000 hits of text pages (no graphics)?

They claim that they're not crazy aggressive on the casual servers. But 500,000 hits is a lot of traffic, small pages or not. They'd take you out for that.

Hmm... total transfer a month: 300mb

That's what 500,000 hits amount to... 300mb... not even half a movie, that people share on kazaa and the sort.

what if you put the webserver on another port?
there is no way of tracing that then is there?
unless they do a full port scan...

I have ran an FTP on Shaw first, then on Rogers, on a high port 54XXX I have never had a problem. and I used to use a LOT of bandwidth. Not for the past year though, its mostly for me if I want to get to my files from anywhere else. Right now serving off an FTP on 192k cap is useless anyway hehe...

Servers are permitted

Found this posted over at RBUA.

quote:
On February 22nd, Peter Hope-Tindall ( a RBUA senior member) and Chris Weisdorf (President and Technical Director RBUA) met briefly Rogers management on the server issue. Dermot O'Carroll (SVP of Network Eng. and Ops.) and Nancy Cottenden (Manager of Media Relations) were there in person, with Vic Pollen (SVP of Customer Care) and Taanta Gupta joining in via conference call. It was explained to us (RBUA: Weisdorf/Hope-Tindall)that running servers were misinterpreted and that their policy of allowing casual servers to operate has not changed. Only abusive servers are at risk for disconnection. Everyone else is safe.
There you have it; casual servers are permitted according to Rogers Management.

Interesting. So running an anonymous FTP on port 21 wouldn't get you a call from Rogers? hehe...
