Due to extensive abuse and trojan connections from several ISP’s the connections from those ISP’s have been restricted to a maximum of two connections per host.
“Any users attempting to make more than two connections to the network will receive an error message of “Too many connections from your host”, as well as having their connection refused. We apologise to any legitimate users connecting from these hosts, but the situation has become unavoidable”, magpie announced on the QuakeNet website.
ISP affected include Wannadoo in the Netherlands and France, ono.com, bezeqint.net, proxad.net and the well known Spanish rima-tde.net.
IRCJunkie contacted QuakeNet for a few questions but got no response back.
