"error contacting URL" message when updating lists
January 11, 2011 05:04PM
i recently changed some settings on my modem and vonage phone box to allow for port forwarding, namely i disabled the DHCP server function on both and created a static IP address for the box and my PC. ever since i have been having trouble updating my lists. at first peerblock was running but would hang temporarily when i initiated an update, then would continue working after the updates failed. i un-installed peerblock and deleted all list caches and re-installed the same and newest stable version and now when i try to update i get the error message "error contacting URL"for lists though it seems to connect well still with peerblock.com.

strangely, i cannot connect to the iblocklist website via interent explorer either. i don't believe this is a result of my antivirus as i haven't recently changed any settings in it? would really like to fix this problem but couldn't find any relevant info in the forum. hope someone can help?

Please try updating PeerBlock lists again. ( Tell us if it works or not )

The I-Blocklist website [www.iblocklist.com] ( the site that PeerBlock uses to update lists ) was experiencing technical difficulties from the ISP.

This issue has been fixed.
