Re: Can't connect to virginwines on virgin media

Can you connect to other sites for over 18's - betting sites etc.?
If its a "blanket ban" its likely that you Account has "Childsafe" activated to prevent young'uns connecting. Go to Your Account and look in the My Apps > Websafe   page and if its on, switch it off.

Re: Can't connect to virginwines on virgin media

It was working fine yesterday. 

I can get to coral, I’d assume there would be some sort of notice if vm was blocking me. 

As I can’t connect I assumed vm are dropping the traffic between me and virgin wines, likely in their interconnect which would likely be affecting other sites too.

Re: Can't connect to virginwines on virgin media

Chrome is telling me i'm getting connection refused which would normally mean virginwines is dropping me.

"This site can’t be reachedvirginwines.co.uk refused to connect.
Try:

Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED"

no such issue when i connect tethered on three.

i'm resolving virginwines.co.uk to 213.35.2.255

works fine on opera vpn, and then fails when i turn it off.

It sounds like Virgin Wines are blocking your IP Address.

Check >> HERE << to see if you are on the 'naughty list'.

Re: Can't connect to virginwines on virgin media

all clear from that Akami naughty list.

My IP hasn't changed for the last 2 years, i was on the virginwines site just yesterday.

the fact its more than 1 site that is dropping me its either whomever is fronting them or something in vm. Normally whomever is doing the dropping lets you know what they've done and why.

Try changing your DNS Server, it shouldn't make any difference at all but who knows.
