I am unable to access Mega.nz on Voxi.

Just me or anyone else?

I have tried overriding the DNS server but no dice.

This is my traceroute...

The timeouts cause a problem.

When using a VPN, I do not get the timeouts.

I am using the SIM in a Zyxel LTE3301-PLUS in passthrough mode to a pFsense appliance.

Am certain it is the DNS servers causing the problem but whatever I use on the client or the pFsense, still no dice.

Also specified Google DNS on the Zyxel, still goes through Vodafone DNS for some reason.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

It’s usually done with something called a Tar Pit. A tar pit doesn’t block the traffic per se but it does bog it down to a point where it’s completely unusable. So VOXI can say “no, we’re not blocking any traffic” because they’re not. But they are making it utterly unusable.
