Default peerblock error message

Hello guys. When I try to update the ip list in peerblock I get the message error contacting url. Itís never done this before and I wondered if there was some way I could fix it. I rebooted my router to see if that was the problem but itís still wonít let me update.I Have peerblock installed on 2 pcís both connected by Ethernet cable so itís not a wireless issue. Any advice would be great

cheers

I'm don't think its your ISP blocking the Peerblock site. At least not in my case. I say this because I can still go to peerblock.com. More importantly, Peerblock is not responsible for updating the list, rather the authors of the particular lists are (BlueTack, I-blocklist or TBG). Upon doing some additional research myself it seems the most likely cause of this problem is the authors of the list haven't produced any updates. Apparently this has happened before. So, the only solution I can see is to give it some time...I guess.........

The iblocklist website had a DOD attack in March. Maybe this is something similar? Their whole website is having loading problems.

I wouldn't mess with your internet configurations. I'd just use your current list and check for updates again in 24hours.

I think it is temporary and a problem with their ISP. Purely a guess but I saw a few posts around the net similar to yours and I couldn't get to their main website so the problem looks to be on their end.

I don't do much with torrents these days and so don't run peerblock very often but there have been times in the past where the lists won't update. It usually resolves in a day or two. I just posted so you don't mess up your internet settings trying to fix a problem coming from their provider.

much appreciated sach2. by the way i also use ipfilter updater via the sourceforge website, can i run both peerblock and ipfilter together or do i need just one of them running? i'm like you i don't use torrents that much but i always like to keep ip protected
cheers

The I-Blocklist site has been down all day, including all the lists. Hopefully this is a temporary thing.

I've never used ipfilter so can't really say. Just a quick read and there should be no conflict using both.
