ukpunting blocking some ISPs

When I try to use ukpunting I get the error message:

"Due to abuse from trolls, your internet provider has been blocked from accessing this site."

I've tried using my VPN service to get around this, and have been occasionally successful connecting from some obscure locations, but then they get closed up too. So they are obviously blacklisting known VPNs.

Has anyone figured out a way around this? I'll be going to London soon and need to research before arrival.

Hi Neurosynth,

I'm not registered on ukpunting but can I access it using the Opera browser in Turbo mode.

Hope this is of some use

First, thanks for taking the time to respond. It's always appreciated.

I'll try that but I don't think it will make any difference. What happens is ukpunting looks at your IP address and if it's on their blacklist it refuses to provide services. A VPN changes your (apparent) IP address, but ukpunting probably puts well known VPN servers on their blacklist as well.

(There are other ways these things can happen, but the above is the more likely case.)

I've been researching this a bit, and the most direct route is finding a VPN service that is small and obscure, and thus hasn't been blacklisted (yet.)

FWIW I tried using the Tor Browser, said to get around IP-based blocking, and still am blocked. Are they doing some kind of deep packet analysis? This is very difficult, and very frustrating.

I've found an apparent workaround, at least for now. If I use my iPhone as a personal hotspot and go over the AT&T 4G network ukpunting.com lets me right through. A hassle to have to switch to that from my home wifi, but at least it works.
