I am unable to access any site from the sourceforge network since upgrading to the newest packages. I have contacted my ISP and they are not blocking the site in any way, I have also verified all my settings and they seem to be the same as what they were before.
The tech support mentioned something about <sourcefore.net> seems to answer ICMP echo requests (ping) intermittently which may indicate a problem on their side. I have 3 computers connecting through my main machine, and they cannot access the site either,
Only my system has Arch for the moment, and the others run Xandros(wife) and Suse(son), and then MDK on laptop, just an experiment for now, going to arch soon.
If I connect the laptop directly to the cable modem, it can surf sourceforge, as well as the other 2 machines.
My network is through crossover wires so all of the configurations are done on my machine. I have had this setup for almost 2 years now with no problems, any ideas?
have you tried with the ip address? Maybe your dns isn't resolving for some reason.
There was also an issue with firefox and dns problems posted somewhere in the forums. Have you tried other browsers?

I have tried with the ipaddress and I get the following error:
PING 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) 56(84) bytes of data. From 220.127.116.11 icmp_seq=1 Destination Port Unreachable From 18.104.22.168 icmp_seq=2 Destination Port Unreachable From 22.214.171.124 icmp_seq=3 Destination Port Unreachable
I have tried with konqueror, nautilus, galeon, opera, mozilla, firefox. All have the same error.
I have also tried disabling my firewall and I still get the same results, so I don't think that it is the firewall.
First try traceroute or better mtr (traceroute + ping) on this address. It will tell you how far your packets can go. Then you will know if it's sf.net or your machine/provider.
BTW: some ip classes are blocked by sf.net (and some other servers too) becasue they were previously "special" kind of ip addresses reserved for other purposes. They were often used by crackers/hackers for attacks before and some admins blocked them completly (it's like using 192.168 in public network). Now when there are not enough of ipv4 addresses some of the reserved classes are released for "normal" use.

I am a bit confused because of the results, it seems that I am able to tracerote and mtr the sf.net site, but am unable to ping sf.net. Other sites still work fine as I am writting in the forum now.
I have only had this problem since I upgraded to kernel26-2.8.3, i think?
Any ideas????? :?:
This is really strange. You can run traceroute and can't ping ?!?.
If it's about this site only it suggests that it's their fault. On the other hand if you can browse it beeing connected diretcly to the router it's not completly broken.
Try using some proxy server which is close to you maybe - not sure if it will help at all but it's still worth trying. You can also try to connect to web server with telnet sf.net 80 to check if it will respond at all.
Check error logs in /var/log and dmesg output for network errors.
Did this start just after kernel upgrade or later? It can be just co-incidence.
BTW I can ping, traceroute and browse sf.net without problems.
