Some ZDT page unreachable from cn

4 posts in this topic

Odly, I cannot reach some links to the ZDT website from China, but can reach others. It seems that any http://zdt.sourceforge.net/............ is unreachable and https://sourceforge.net/projects/zdt/ too. But https://sourceforge....acker/index.php............. and a few other work fine. When I turn on the proxy server, all work fine. Internet is often flaky down here...

Anybody has similar experiences?

And, let's say, if the Great Wall blocks a site, is there way to request a block to lifted? Or to ask what needs to be changed in order to have the ban lifted? :)

I seem to remember that Sourceforge has been blocked in the past, due to hosting anti-censorship tools - don't recall which ones. Not sure why some pages would be working and others not - are they perhaps redirecting to different subdomains / servers or something?

Indeed, definitely a difference between the sub-domains. Have to live with this behavior, I guess.

Not possible to request a block to be lifted?

I seem to remember reading way back that you can file requests via your ISP. I look forward with interest to reading about your long and futile struggle :mrgreen:
