Vispa killing P2P during peak hours and https problems

I havent been using P2P much recently, but in the past speeds have always IMPROVED after 8am; but recently I have noticed my P2P downloads being strangled to death (under 10KB/s) within 30 minutes of peak hours starting, and not returning to 800+ KB/s until after midnight.

I am also unable to access Vispas pages using https at the moment, any other Vispa customers having this problem?? Deleting the "s" gets me there, although only to a slow, stripped down version with no graphs in the control panel.
 
Hi Captain_Cretin,

We did reply to your original email in to us earlier, but as yet we have received no further response from you.

I have just sent you another email asking if we can remote into your machine to see if there is anything we can see/do to restore service for you.

Regards,

Hi, the reply didnt arrive until I had left for work; I have set up remote access and Derek is currently fiddling with my system ;).

I havent noticed any big lag issues, although one particular website has been taking a LONG time to initially load, compared with every other site I visit daily.

Derek has sorted my https problem; I dont understand why, but my firewall has started blocking access to the vispa secure server. Strangely it said the url for the server is invalid when I tried to add it to the white list as well, instead I had to enter the IP address.

Once entered the website works as well as ever (ie lots of links dont work :shrug:).

REALLY weirdly, the firewall issue didnt stop Internet Explorer from accessing the website.

Exactly why the firewall has caused this is a mystery, I havent altered or changed the firewall for more than a year, and everything was working correctly last month.

No resolution of the P2P problem yet though, Derek suggests it might also be the firewall, so I will have a play, but I cannot see how as it works perfectly during off peak hours, and only slows to a trickle between 8am and midnight.
