P2P software no longer working

Hi,

Just moved from BT to Plus.net, and have the home2000 package.

It seems that although i have not changed any settings apart from username and pass, none of my p2p sofware will work. I mainly use bittorrents, and i cant seem to connect to any peers.

Any ideas? is p2p blocked somehow?

Please help if you can, Thanks!

Only the HomeSurf accounts have blocks on any of the P2P applications. To confirm, paste a tracert to Google.

In adition, I do occasionaly use both bit-torrant and other P2P apps, and they all work fine.

Which account are you on?

hullo there
i am on the homesurf account (18.99)
just checked on google and it seems that you need to be on selfinstall or any other account besides homesurf to use p2p
its also in the faq on the plusnet website
seems as its so cheap you cant be using it to share large files
but the letter says you can change account so long as you have used up your contract
this must be a new thing though cause i had no problems before !!

AFAIK, the surf accounts have always blocked p2p, and certain other things. Up until now maybe there was some kind of technical fault which allowed you to do so.
