There was a thread on this last week or so...several folks (me included) are/were having problems accessing Macgamefiles, IMG Magazine, Macgamestore, etc., due to some ISP/IP address weirdness. Search for the thread, it has info on proxies to use to get around the problem.

DNS Issues...

I've been in touch with BigPutridPond (my ISP) of the unavailability of insidemacgames - and ultimately (after 3 hours spent on the phone) they agreed with my initial determination - that the name's not being resolved.

They're going to see about sorting it - but seeing as this has been ongoing (apparently) for over a month, I'm not holding my breath...

how could the problem be with the ISP?? im not understanding. just doesnt add up properly

Are you from Australia? Is Bigpond your ISP? I know I can't get there because of them.

Try this

EDIT: And if you go to download something substitute the http://downloads#.macgamefiles.com/ with http://208.100.26.10/

And don't bother complaining because they always say the same thing, they don't block sites
mention t*****a again and ill shoot you!!! nah not really... but i HATE telstra. they give me the *****, i have them...12gb limit, with uploads counted!!! GAH! its pathetic. they are so annoying. i am capped on dailup as we speak. its not pretty

This sites are also inaccessible from Optus. I've emailed support on this. I don't expect any legible and useful reply. :)

Its nothing to do with the website. It's a routing issue. My route gets most of the way there then times out. Optus Support say they can connect to it fine. I've ran some diagnostics (traceroutes) and sent them back.

Cannot access macgamefiles.com

I'm having this problem also. Trying to connect from China (Shanghai) and it will not connect. Did any solution end up resolving this problem? Thanks in advance for any help.
