Is Fileserve Blocked?

[ Edited ]

Can't download anything at all from Fileserve currently. Keep getting the following message:

"The IWF has recently implemented changes that may affect your download ability on the site.

 Please contact your local ISP or upgrade your account to a Premium account now."

I have a premium account already.

Anyone else having this problem or know what's going on?

Any info greatly appreciated.

Re: Is Fileserve Blocked?

I'd like to know if this problem is just specific to me or if other BT users are are also currently experiencing the same issue.

Can BT do anything to resolve this issue?

Re: Is Fileserve Blocked?

from  you post it would appear the IWF has told ISPs including BT to block the fileserve website

Re: Is Fileserve Blocked?

How (and when) will this problem get resolved?

Are people with different UK ISP's also currently affected then?

Re: Is Fileserve Blocked?

Hi Guys

 

BT is not preventing access to the domain  Fileserve. Fileserve can be contacted via www.fileserve.com/contact-us.php for further information.

 

I'm sorry we can't help with this situation.

Re: Is Fileserve Blocked?

I am also a premium member receiving exactly the same message.

 

  Attempting to download failed.
      The IWF has recently implemented changes that may affect your download ability on the site.

      Please contact your local ISP or
upgrade your account to a Premium account now

 

I can log onto the domain but am unable to download anything including my own stored files. I remember a similar situation earlier with another downloading site this year which Bt denied was being blocked by them, but was! 

Is this Fileserve or BT?
