Re: Virgin Media is blocking and interfering with traffic to certain sites

[ Edited ]

Thanks.  I wondered if this might add credence to the hypothesis that a MITM proxy is involved but the fact that your test reports that the 500 error is coming from Varnish is inconclusive. It tends to indicate that the 500 really is coming from apt.osmc.tv but it's still uncertain.

Re: Virgin Media is blocking and interfering with traffic to certain sites

@bromham It does possibly explain why the admin at osmc.tv doesn't see the http requests come in if he's checking the actual server rather than his edge proxy.

For example, if I do your test - BTW you can use -S as a shortcut

C:\Users\timdu>wget osmc.tv -S --ca-certificate c:\cacert.pem
SYSTEM_WGETRC = c:/progra~1/wget/etc/wgetrc
syswgetrc = C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32/etc/wgetrc

Re: Virgin Media is blocking and interfering with traffic to certain sites

@grindax - Before Virgin Media can escalate this, one of the things they will need is for you to try the hub in router mode as I requested earlier.  Now we can wait until one of the Forum Team jumps in the thread and let them ask directly, or we can try and get the information beforehand in order to save everyone some time.

I'm eager to get to the bottom of this issue, and certainly, if you do end up with the same results, we can certainly push Virgin's Network team to look at this.  But they won't look without concrete evidence.
