IDNet Help / Re: Can't reach idnet website
« Last post by zappaDPJ on Today at 09:46:46 »
It's up for me. The only explanation I can suggest is that the server's security software has banned your IP for some reason. A call to support should resolve it.

IDNet Help / Can't reach idnet website
« Last post by duncan on Today at 09:20:34 »
Can anyone explain why I can't reach idnet's website?  (All other browsing is OK)  DNS is resolving to 212.69.36.64 but I can't even ping it from any PC in my home.  I can reach it from other locations that I can RDP into and from my phone on 4G - so I know the site isn't down.

FTTC/FTTP / Re: Traffic Priority
« Last post by dudwell on Feb 12, 2018, 18:54:19 »
I received a prompt response from Johnathan:-

Traffic priority is something predominantly used by businesses and gamers during peak hours to reduce response times or lag whilst using the connection.

Depending on what your usage and needs are, its probably something that you wouldn't notice much.


Needless to say I've asked for it to be taken off. I'll report in due course whether I notice any difference.

In my view, the higher prioritisation is unlikely to make any real difference.

In theory, if you are on a congested link it might, but in my experience (with a TTB based ISP) it didn't made a jot of a difference when I have paid for priority.

I would certainly suggest you call them to ask them why you are paying for Priority Traffic.

IDNet Help / Strange IPv6 TBBQM graph
« Last post by andrue on Feb 11, 2018, 19:50:36 »
I have two TBBQM graphs. One for IPv4 and one for IPv6. Until recently both were flat and quiet when the connection was not in use. Recently the IPv6 has become spikey. At first I thought it was my server causing it because it is the target of the TBBQM. But I checked and double checked and I can't see any evidence on the server itself. I've graphed its CPU and network usage and they are quiet. Has anyone else seen anything like recently?

As far as throughput is concerned all is good. In fact since a reconnect a couple of weeks ago everything has been back to the way it was before I re-joined IDNet back in July.

FTTC/FTTP / Traffic Priority
« Last post by dudwell on Feb 11, 2018, 19:13:28 »
Now I don't like to seem a cheapskate but on inspecting my IDNet invoices I see that I'm paying an additional £10 a month for Traffic Priority on top of my FTTC 40/2 £39.50/Month package. I'm sure I never asked for this extra.

I use the internet for everyday domestic purposes: entertainment (YouTube, TV on demand), information (news, weather, a couple of forums), shopping, banking. Nothing of a business nature and no gaming.

I live in a quiet country lane with 4 internet-connected neighbours, 800m from a small village exchange which is a satellite of a larger village exchange.

So how did it happen that I'm getting Traffic Priority and is it worthwhile?

I  remember it as demanding a ransom to rename the files back as was and was written (or released) by a guy linked to aids research with the money going to help people with aids out in Africa,I thought it was pretty ironic at the time as he could have just formed a charity(or am I thinking of the wrong virus?)

Possibly although I'm not 100% sure. I actually managed to find the disk (as attached).

There were no demands for money just a rather rude message displayed and a locked PC. I do recall it was considered serious enough for some organisation (I don't recall which) to issue a fix which also came on a 5¼-inch floppy.

For some reason the Wikipedia link above won't parse correctly. That I think is a 'feature' of SMF!
