    Default Problem with IP address

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but....lately I've been trying to download files off RapidShare. But it keeps saying my IP address is already downloading and I cannot download anything else. But I'm not currently downloaing anything. And I don't have a shared address or proxy server. Any suggestions on what I should do?

    I think that it is possible to spoof an IP adress with some work, but I kind of doubt that is what you are running into.

    This is direct from Rapidshare...

    Your system complaints about that I am already downloading files or that I have already downloaded too much. But I did not download anything! Whats wrong there?

    Our system checks your IP-address in order to count the downloads. If you are getting this message and you really did not download anything, then you are using a proxy-server, which is used by other people as well. Even if you have no proxy-server set up in your configuration, there are many providers who force a transparent proxy-servers between you and the net. If you do not believe us, go to other pages telling you your IP-address (for example http://www.myipaddress.com.) But what can you do? You have to disable this proxy-server. If you are not able to disable the proxy-server, the only solution IS a Premium-account. Premium-users are recognized by cookies, not by IP-address. Unfortunately we cannot disable our IP-check, else people would download so much that we would have to close down this service completely. I hope you understand our situation in this matter.


    Go to the site that they suggest, or another one that you know of, and check it against your computer's IP adress, or the external one of your local network if that is the case. ISPs do a lot of weird shit sometimes (weird, asshole-ish, stupid, etc.). Only thing I can suggest is to sit there and keep trying for a while. You should eventually get through, if someone is indeed using your IP adress. Can't be downloading all the time. Other than that, I don't know. You could try calling your ISP and asking them about the problem as well.
