I can't get connected to DC ++

Hi
I can't get connected to DC++
Using version 0.674
It fires up and each site i try says 'connected' but it won't go any
further. DC ++ used to work fine with no probs. But this last 5 to
6 weeks it doesn't behave properly

Is it possible that Plusnet is stopping the connection ??
I'm not a heavy user, about 15gig a month
I'm using PN's £18.99 home surf package

DC++ is file sharing.
File sharing, P2P etc is not supported by Homesurf (read the T&C's), though until recently you could get away with it since Pn didn't have anything in place to stop it.
Plusnet has recently installed new equipment which analyses traffic and stops file sharing on Homesurf accounts.

You are not the first to be cuaght out like this.

If you still want to use P2P much, you will need to upgrade for free to the £21.99 premier up to 2Mb account.
