eBay Problems

We have about 30 users on our connection and have had problems with people being logged on as other users on our network automatically.

These people never use each others computers and have all chosen not to sign in automatically.

Call Aramiska tech support and get the usual standard answer 'nothing to do with us'.

Anyone else had the same problem?

How is the connection shared amongst the 30 users? Do they each have their own IP address, or is it a single IP using network address translation?

30 Users?

Can you be a little more specific in what you mean as there are some details needed like how r u shared, i pressume wifi? what do you mean by logged on as other users? as cookies are used by Ebay per machine for ID so unique to the users machine. I use Ebay A LOT (wife spends too much on there) & i have my connection shared with the neighbours & no issues there...........is this a community wifi with a person or company setting up the system head end? If so who & how r they setting this up.

The more info the better as a fly on the wall once said.

Shared by Wi-Fi using a 2K server in front of the arc, running NAT (RRAS) with bandwidth limiting, so all have private IPs.

Basically, person A logs into aBay as normal. Person B is logged in and browsing, suddenly person A will be logged in as person B and vice versa... very strange.

Wierd problem that.

I have about 7 people on my connection who use ebay (addicts!) and I've never experienced that problem.

Just out of interest Jon, how are you limiting the bandwidth on your network? Is it using 3rd party software, or done by RRAS?

Far as I know you can't limit bandwidth using RRAS (tell me if you know how!)

I'm simply using bandwidth controller (www.bandwidthcontroller.com) nice easy software. This limits bandwidth per IP address.

I have spoken to eBay and they say it is something to do with the cache - I can't see how... squid (on the arc box) should not cache dynamic content anyway.....?

It does cache dynamic pages for a certain time, around 4-5mins I've found.

It could be that Squid is caching the ebay page of somebody who is logged in, so that when somebody else goes to ebay, they get that page. So maybe the user isn't *actually* logged in on the other PCs, the page just shows that they are as it's cached.

Hope you understand what I mean!

cache?

Hi jon,
what is your public IP on the Aramiska system. PM it to me or email. I will have your cache cleaned out but i suspect this is not the issue as lots of people use Ebay with no incidents reported. Is the W2k server caching at all?

PM me or i can not help of course........... :shrug:

Now I thought this, but one of our (ever so helpful) users decided to send me an e-mail logged in under my account, to prove a point! So you can browse around the other users bank details, etc. V. worrying!

I'm sure that Win 2K box does not chache anything as it is simply doing translations using RRAS. I've had a report that another guy has recived one of our eBay e-mails, I'll find out tomorrow and let you know what that is all about.....!
