Hi there, today I was downloading the 3DMark bench from your site but it stopped at 98% and now I can not connect to the site anymore using my internet connection, but I can using my phone 4G network. I restarted my router my nothing changed. I got blocked for some reason? I can ping your server but can not connect anymore. I got a connection timed out message. I'll check with my isp.

If you got dynamic IP, I'd go for a modem reset. Might also be worth checking your modem setup and the logs, etc.

Try this, maybe your ISP allows it.
To request a new IP, log in to your router as admin, under Network > WAN settings (or similar), Release WAN Lease, then Renew WAN Lease, you should be assigned with a different IP now.

Yeah this is totally possible if you triggered some sort of site protection script.

This shouldn't happen for normal activity. Any idea what your IP was at the time? I can check the logs

Feel free to send the IP in a PM

Thanks for the PM, the reason is your download manager which keeps trying to open more and more connections, in a very short interval

Adjusted the limits to be a bit more generous, but loading the "start download" page more than 50 times in a few minutes really is too much

"this super excellent program will let you download at speeds 50 times faster than ever before!!!". Sometimes followed by "All for the low low low price of ...".

Not everyone is on a fibre optic or decent DSL connection. Less than fifth of the world are, as a matter of fact.

Not sure if this counts as thread hijacking, but is it possible to extend the download link expiry duration as well?

More of an inconvenience, tbh.
Starting another download in the browser, then copying the new URL and replacing the dead one in the partially completed download in my download manager does the trick. But still, would be nice to not have to do so.
