The Pirate Bay is blocked

They didn't hang about did they! Guess this is the start of a very slippery slope. I wonder what site will be next? Guess the BPI now runs the internet in the UK.

re: The Pirate Bay is blocked (Discuss but do not post detail of how to get round it)

Is it blocked via DNS, IP null routing, packet dropping or how?

Just tried the 8.8.8.8 (Google) DNS and it's still blocked (redirect to the http://my.virginmedia.com/site-blocked.html page)

DNS works OK, the IP gets routed to a page that says

Web Proxies (so I presume VPNs as well) get round the block

It's got to be at the IP level.

I've got OpenDNS setup on my router but I get the same page.

I've got a VPS in the UK which I've installed OpenVPN on and that works. I've also got a VPN in another country and that works.

Guess it's the push I needed to cancel. I hardly bother with the place but it's the principle.

Stupid, they should know that these days blocking something only makes people want it more, obviously easy to get round.

Interesting. Smacks of transparent proxy, which is going to slow everyone and everything down.
