Default Blocked IPs/ISPs

Are there any blocked ISPs or IP ranges? I can't access stashbox through this ISP, but I can in other computers with different ISPs.

We had to block a lot of Brazilian IP ranges due to their overloading our server, to the point that it was affecting all sites it hosts.

I don't believe that the brazilian Reaper users can overlad the Cockos server. If this is true, then you need review the server power. Put all brazilian Reaper users out of Stashbox is a wrong and discriminatory decision.
I hope Cockos reconsider the decision.
Greetings.

1. It's certainly not brazilian Reaper users causing this. Very convenient and ad-free, Stashbox is a "much better than standard" file hoster for everyone, which is working from the same servers AFAIK and follows similar ethics as everything here. Otherwise it's independent. It attracts

2. normal guys who use up all the bandwidth, I guess one doesn't need much imagination for what they use it. Stashbox is not meant for that kind of (mis)usage. Unlike all the known big crap hosters, Stashbox doesn't annoy you with "mega-premium-memberships" for (much) money and artificial delays and relies on donations to pay for the bandwidth (which is getting more expensive every day as I heard) and overall common sense and decency.

3. If you're getting spammed/overloaded/attacked/explioted/whatever, there's not much you can do about it except blocking entire IP ranges allocated to an ISP. Blocking single IPs doesn't help at all due to dynamic IPs and you can't block a whole country easily either on the other hand. Hence it's not all of Brazil being blocked, it's (by coincidence) your ISP from which the abuse happened and which is temporarily blocked until the abusing guys do their "business" someplace else. Not to mention that file hosters can be even held (partially) responsible for certain activities in some countries.

Sorry, I know that is not very satisfying for you but things like this happen on the internet every day and anyone anywhere can be affected by such a thing any time as soon as certain interest groups form within your ISP's IP ranges, or too many "zombie computers" get activated there. ISPs are affected themselves by the same dilemma sometimes, I know of a case in my country where an ISP desperately tried to "buy out" high-bandwidth leechers out of their contracts (they were promised a 100€ bonus if they leave that ISP).

I can´t access the stashbox, I´ve been trying for weeks.

Can´t you allow me access to the website if I give you my ISP IP numbers?

Default Hi Steindork

Thank you for clarifying it.
What about Cockos transfer the Stashbox content for the forum, with access permission only for Reaper registered users? So the malicious use of the space would be impossible and the Reaper users would have the nice content back.
Greetings.

I don't have the access to stashbox.org, but I'm a registered and licensed REAPER user. But where there are demos showing how to use new features, I'm not able to access them because brazillian IPs were blocked? Sorry, but this is absurd, I would really expect you to reconsider this or consider using a different server for the demos so I and other users in the same location range can access them as well. Or at least use a mirror for the demos, I am surely being discriminated with this action, no matter the technical reasons.

To be clear, Stashbox isn't part of Cockos and isn't connected to REAPER.

We (Cockos) will be sure to host any demo videos that we make for new REAPER features on stash.reaper.fm, which won't be subject to whatever blocks Stashbox has had to put in place.

Ah, thanks, Schwa, for the clarification and the move. This is indeed good news (been missing those demos).

No link inside stashbox works, including the home page.
