A customer of mine in Wellington has had no cable connection since
Monday night. This is no connection full stop for that time period, it
is not the random drop outs that people have been having on cable.
Telstra (faults/customer service) has been unable to give an ETA for
the fix and they do not currently know what the problem is. Their
current idea is to try a new modem but that is not coming until
Everything is setup correctly as the firewall is seeing random access
attempts from other ips on the subnet (121.73.0.*), but the client is

to shed anymore light on this?
I'd appreciate it if an engineer from TelstraClear could contact me offlist
with regards to routing from TelstraClear to 184.108.40.206/16.

port 25, not even mail.orcon.net.nz, this happens on all 14 hosts. The
user has no firewall settings on the router, no local firewall and is
Just wondering if anyone is aware of xtra blocking port 25 ?
I remotely administer a number of RH & CentOS (various control panel
software) servers for web hosting companies world wide on a monthly fee
