    Default Sudden blocking

    Hi
    My friend got up this morning and notices his SABNZBD was no longer downloading anything in list with following error

    Failed to connect: EOF occurred in violation of protocol (_ssl.c:661) [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]:563

    and will no longer donwload despite him having lots more bandwidth left with ISP and blocknews, also his mail servers (in and out) also will not connect.

    Any pointers would be gratefully received.

    unless he has altered his settings or ISP I guess its down to the service provider that's blocked him or any firewalls he has setup installed recently

    does he use a VPN ? if not he should be from the start.

    remove all firewalls and antivirus shit and try again
    if its a native connection with nothing stopping protecting it then its down to other measures
    like the isp provider or an outside source

    if the internet runs fine then something is blocking the other places your trying to goto {try google for a test page}
    if that shows up and you have a fine internet speed then go with the fact that something major is happening
    trying out a free VPN might cure it. VPN are cheap if purchased yearly about 3 a month

    Good, glad he got it sorted

    Still if he isn't using some sort of VPN, he might someday get a letter through the door or other measures
    I got stung a few years back whilst using DC++ of all things, I can remember downloading a lot of MP3s
    Letter gave all the details and even the file I got caught with (probably a honey pot user on DC++)

    Never replied to it, just threw it in the bin

    not heard anything since
