Visa fullständig version : Relakks down?


2006-10-08, 03:29
Since about 3 - 4 days ago I can no longer use Relakks, did something happen? Can't even ping the pptp.relakks.com but I can connect and log in to l2tp.relakks.com but no traffic will go through. I've connected from multiple PC's on different networks and I get the same result. I've emailed them 3x and get no replies.



I know it's a darknet, but I don't like being in the dark about it!

2006-10-09, 04:34
So if you use Relakks and its working please let me know!

2006-10-09, 23:24
I think the problem is that the "test period" has end now. You must pay to use relakks.

I've been paying, I even have two active account right now... unfortunately neither is working!

2006-10-12, 01:41
already, a week's my limit, i'll let them fight my credit card company since they won't reply to email or update why service is not working.

2006-10-13, 14:10
Already a week in Italy to pptp is completly down while the l2tp server estabilish a connection , can ping the gateway but not traffic routed to the internet.

And yes of course they are not repliyng to e-mail , it's a shame , we should suit them for a non exitent service instead of writing e-mails to them.

Absurd!

In Germany relakks down?

2007-10-14, 13:49
I think Relakks is down at the moment (using it from the UK), won't get past verifying username and password, it times out.

2007-10-14, 17:04
I can verify that - not been able to connect today.

2007-10-14, 17:06
Down in US since about 20:00 CDT 10/13.

2007-10-14, 19:06
Same here, can't connect. Anyone tried to contact relakks?

2007-10-14, 23:46
I heard they were busted and police is checking server right now :(

2007-10-14, 23:49
I really hope they doesn´t logged anything! If yes, some guys will be in serious trouble!!!

it's down and they are just slow to fix problems.

2007-10-15, 07:50
I think thats a technical problem.



when they were busted the server would be down an not give us a time out...

Unless the police are leaving it up to capture IP's of people try to log on. Be careful, until we know for sure and have heard from someone known to be from relakks. This could be nothing or a serious problem for anyone with a relakks account who has been doing big file transfers or going other groups if logs were kept. With 50K subscribers there are bound to be few who were doing kiddie porn file sharing. Anyone listening to the news here in the EU knows of all the busts over the past three months. Not saying this is what is happening, but who knows.

2007-10-15, 12:12
It works again,



but was is really a technical problem??? Or something else?

2007-10-15, 12:59
Works here now too, I sent an email to Relakks but never got an answer.

2007-10-15, 15:42

That is my worry. It would be nice to see some sort of explanation. Way too slipshod for a VPN anonymous service. The people running it clearly take the money and don't give a damn about service. They are logging IP and only way to pay is by credit card. May as well use steganous in DE for a VPN. If relakks used e-gold as a form of payment I could see it. But as it is your arse is hanging way out there with the people at relakks. By their actions they show they can not be trusted.

2007-10-15, 16:03
Yes, but it´s a little bit too late for an explanation. It had to come before the sollution. Because now they can tell us everything...

2007-10-15, 16:04
That´s the question... Can we still trust Relakks?

Well they know your home IP when you logon. Do they keep a log of it? Who knows. As for me, I am not going there ever again. You could logon thru a TOR connection to mask your IP. But what would be the point of that? I think most users are running torrents and file sharing and if they are using Relakks to avoid the RIAA types, they are living way over the edge. Relakks is to compromised.



I think the the Piratpartiet needs to take a good look at Relakks and the people running it and warn others off. The people running Relakks are making €2.5 million a year if they have 50000 subscribers paying €50/yr as people say they do. If they are running a high end server farm they would still be taking in €1.5 million after expenses. With that type of income they are way to sloppy to trust with to keep you anonymous.



After a little over a year in operation it is clear they don't give a damn about their customers. They got the money and that is all they care about. They won't even take the time to reply to emails. Arrogance.

2007-10-27, 15:19
Can not connect from USA, anyone else?

2007-12-31, 12:13
Is Relakks down for anyone else? Haven't been able to connect in a couple days...

2007-12-31, 12:23
yes, also down for me since yesterday

All the time error 718 - verifing user/pass

2007-12-31, 13:18
Yes, same here in Germany. There are also a lot of posts in German filesharing forums, where Relakks users complain about the downtime. Some think it's a server upgrade because of the new "anti terrorism" law about the total control and logging of all german communication coming into effect january first, so Relakks will get lot's of new customers next year.

But does anyone know what's really going on?!

2007-12-31, 13:45
Same problem, and paying the account. Havent tried contacting them via mail. but it seems they dont respond to mail judging by what others say.







It would be too bad if they were gone for good. they do/did have a stable connection that didnt interfere with my normal surfing speeds too much :/



: adding :



[2007-04-18; 15:52]

----

För att förbättra prestandan ytterliggare kommer vi att genomföra ett planerat servicearbete på plattformen under morgondagen (19 april). Detta kan komma att medföra driftstörningar under en kortare period mellan 13 och 14.



Means that they were going to perform a service work on their platform on the morning of the 19th april.



Perhaps something went wrong and they will eventually be back...



hopefully

2007-12-31, 16:03
I found a very interesting interview with one of the Relakks guys which was recorded this summer. They seem to be very convinced of their company and he gives a very enthusiastic speech about the fight for privacy and against internet monitoring.

In particular he also mentions:



"And there is actually an upgrade being planed at the moment ... we will people giving the benefit of choosing their IP nationality"



I already heard of this upgrade plan. Maybe it's that what they are doing at the moment!

This would be a REALLY big thing! Especially in those days of global communication and global markets, where companies benefit of globalisation all day an buy their stuff where it's cheapest (mostly in China) but wilfully deny those rights to the "normal people" and build virtual barriers to make as much money as they can.



For example the European market-commission already launched a trial against Apple's iTunes store, because they deny British people to enter the Swedish iTunes store where MP3 files are much cheaper compared to the British iTunes and Sony's BlueRay discs have still stuff like "Region Codes". Now imagine Europeans would have now the ability to use the weak Dollar and buy MP3 files cheaply from the new American Amazon music-store online! No more "Europe Prices" for me my friend!! :cool:

Down for me as well, these last few days. Hangs at the "Verifying your username".

No replies to my emails.

2008-01-01, 12:52
Same here. The service is down for 4 days now. They don't react on E-Mails (they probably don't read them anyway...). relakks would be great if it had a better uptime. In 2007 the service was down for at least 10 entire days.



:crazy: :angry:

2008-01-01, 19:21
Anyone know any alternatives? My monthly is about to expire anyways...

2008-01-01, 19:39
I was using http://www.vpntunnel.co.uk/ before Relakks, very good connection except you are only allowed a maximum of 50gb per month and costs more.



Hope they sort this out soon, my renewal doesn't come up for a while and I don't feel like paying for another service while i'm paying for this non-existent one.

2008-01-02, 11:32
All right guys, I just woke up this morning and it's working here again in Germany!



I guess just some system crash or server upgrade. But I have to say with the new communication monitoring law comming around the corner here, it wasn't the best time they choose. A lot of people were looking for a VPN provider and a lot of people then heard: "Relakks? Yes, they are trustworthy, but sadly there gone." No good publicity!

A status page would be really nice or at least some message on the home page like "The service will be temporarly down because we will perform some service maintenance between 30.12.07 and 02.01.08." or so.

2008-01-02, 17:41
I would be thankful if paying with PayPal would work again and if the last news on the page wasn't from 2007-05-23 :(

2008-01-02, 21:49
Paypal's not working?!?! :blink:



Didn't try Paypal myself, but are you sure you payed attention to this note on the Relakks site:

"If you use PayPal, you MUST "Return to Merchant" after your payment is completed."

Or did Paypal blacklist Relakks on the order of the RIAA? Danmed capitalists - where is your "better freedom than equality" here?

2008-01-03, 07:05
Relakks is working again, atleast it does for the moment

2008-01-05, 15:53
They look to be down again. Website isnt even working. Hangs at connecting to pptp.relakks.com

2008-01-05, 16:08
Everything's working perfectly here - VPN and website.

2008-01-05, 16:11
Really? I wonder if My ISP has blocked them then. Very strange as I get Page not found for Relakks

2008-01-05, 18:34
VPN went down sometime last night, website works still..(From US)

2008-01-11, 15:41
I've tried to renew my account but all I get is a message from PayPal "This recipient is currently unable to receive money."

2008-01-25, 23:43
Anonymous (2008-Jan-11)I've tried to renew my account but all I get is a message from PayPal "This recipient is currently unable to receive money."



i'm getting this too today (25th january 2008) perhaps they are only taking credit cards now?



will they cancel my account when payment is due in a week if i haven't managed to pay via paypal?

2008-02-15, 00:42
Im in Canada and can't connect as of 6:30PM EST. It's hanging at Verifying your username. Anyone else having issues?

2008-02-15, 04:28
same shit here

2008-02-15, 09:15
It's been down over 12 hours now in the US. Very unreliable service.

2008-02-15, 13:46
ya, its down in germany too

2008-02-15, 16:28
Well Im the guy from Canada. Seems to be working again - but for how long?

2008-02-19, 17:58
Now all payment methods aren't working anymore. The auto-renewal of my monthly subscription failed and none of the methods on the site are working anymore. Not even the 1-year option.



Seems Relakks is gone.

2008-02-20, 16:13
i can not agree, it is working



it takes some trials, but i can connect

2008-02-20, 19:12
I can still connect but the speeds Im getting today are terrible. 20% of my bandwidth!

2008-02-20, 19:28
I'm not saying that you can't connect. I could connect till Friday too. Then my subscription ran out and there is no way to renew it. So if your subscription runs out in the near future, relakks will be gone for you too ;-)



But think about it: When they don't offer people with monthly auto-renewal (been customer for over a year!) a way to renew, how long will the service still be up? I think this is either to slowly fade out the service or the admins over there really do a bad job...

2008-02-21, 02:54
Ok, just found out: Mastercard still works! Visa and Paypal are down though! If you need a kinda cheep mastercard go to wirecard.com

2008-02-21, 10:26
yes, there is fuckin low speed and the connection aborts frequently



sometimes i reconnect and the access is granted, but i can not make any communication :-(



maybe it depends on my configuration



but "RELAKKS is fast and you get exactly the same bandwidth as you get from your ISP today" is a big big lie

2008-02-21, 18:33
ok, now my connection is stable for four hours



also my speed is appropriate



i didnt changed my configuration, so i think that the relakks guys solved a heavy issue



my co-worker who has relakks too, told me the same

2008-03-04, 03:54
Well Im back to not being able to connect. Hanging at "Verifying username and Password". It's 9:45PM Monday March 3rd in Eastern Canada. Crap service indeed

2008-03-16, 21:01
Looks like relakks is completely out. Even their domain is now for sale.

2008-03-16, 22:43
Looks more like they forgot to renew their registration:

Well I can't login too. But I don't know if this pptp stuff has something to do with their domain. It's sunday evening and since Relakks got really popular, it's quite normal to have connection problems during "rush hours".

But it's true, they are quite a bunch of funny guys: Looks like they started it as an experimental project and got overwhelmed by the success. Don't care much for the website (last news and FAQ update was ages ago), hardly answers mails (although sometimes they do answer!), paypal doesn't work since ages...

Isn't Relakks somehow connected with the ISP of ThePirateBay too? ThePirateBay also started as a little project of some ISP employee.



A friend of mine told me that Relakks is the only company he knows that doesn't seem to want neither customers nor their money. :hehe:

2008-03-16, 23:30
Does anyone still have IP addresses of www.relakks.com and pptp.relakks.com? Those should still work...

2008-03-16, 23:38
Wait a sec...

I used to directly login via IP since I used the old COMODO v2 firewall. Habe to search my archives for their gateway IP...

2008-03-17, 08:49
Any1 got other Server-IP Adresses, to connect? Would be great ;).

2008-03-17, 12:48
PPTP.relakks.com is supposed to resolve to one of 4 IP addresses:



83.233.183.2

83.233.182.2

83.233.169.2

83.233.168.2



Given they've had some difficulties accepting payments, I'm not sure what is going on over at the Relakks ISP, but it does worry me.

2008-03-17, 12:57
Heres the full list of IP addresses that I could still find (I discovered the webservers by probing the LABS2-NET-SE block...):



83.233.168.2 pptp.relakks.com

83.233.169.2 pptp.relakks.com

83.233.180.2 pptp.relakks.com

83.233.181.2 pptp.relakks.com

83.233.182.2 pptp.relakks.com

83.233.183.2 pptp.relakks.com

82.209.182.21 www.flashback.name

82.209.182.9 www.relakks.com

2008-03-17, 13:58
It's working again! The guys are still alive!



https://www.relakks.com/?cid=gb



Fortunately they've always used a certified https connection.

The certificate seems to be OK, so it's not a fraud and you can login safely.

2008-03-18, 16:15
Thanks alot!

2008-03-18, 17:57
Does it work? Can't login using pptp.relakks.com or any of the posted IPs. Account expires end of next month, according to the page.

2008-03-18, 18:35
Using Port Explorer to monitor the connection process:



As of today, logging on to Relakks, It take a hop to 209.62.20.177 (The Planet in Huston, TX USA). Not good news. I consider the whole site compromised and the domain name under US control. This means The Planet servers and whoever is monitoring it, has the IP, logon name and password of everyone who has tried to logon to the Relakks domain or IP's in the past 36 hours. Those people at Relakks had to know this and never put an alert up on their website. I think Relakks has to be considered in unfriendly and perhaps US government hands.



Other confirming the information I have posted here need to post warns on the web and bloggs regarding this

2008-03-19, 10:30
ok... so what do "we" do now...???

do i still dare to use RELAKKS , or can you give me any tips on similar solutions , where i can feel secure again... :cool:

For what kind of company are you working to spread such FUD?!

What you posted here is plain wrong!!



I've checked the route myself and there aren't any hops to US carriers. Are you from the US?

Would explain why your route uses US carriers.



Anyway, the DNS entries of "relakks.com" and "pptp.relakks.com" still resolve to 82.209.182.9 and 83.233.183.2 like they always did.

Additionally relakks.com uses a https connection. The certificate is still valid and all data transferred to relakks is encrypted.

Furthermore I've "tested" relakks two days ago, as the site went online again. Even if somebody had setup a "fake relakks" site (impossible due to the certificate) they would just collect all login information, since they don't have to original relakks user data.

BUT the first time I entered the site I used a wrong password and the site told me "wrong password". Somebody who is faking the site to get the user data couldn't know this!!

2008-03-19, 22:39
Does anyone have any idea why exactly didnt relakks work during the past days and why don't they release any information about it on the website? Yesturday the relakks.com directed me to a completely different relakks website, only in english and it had a lot of information about hiding ip and so on. Propably commercials if they had some problems with the domain. Why could it be that relakks was down at the same time when they had problems with the domain. I just dont underestand why they wont post any information on the website... All I need is a genious.

I work for no one and what I said did happen and if Relakks is so with it, why have they not posted one thing on their website since May 2007? They go down for days on end and give not explanation. No I am not in the US I am in Belgium. FUD? Not hardly. Relakks' lack of system updates and down times and reasons information is FUD. Makes one wonder who is running the operations and why they are silent about these matters and do not respond to emails. Trust your anonymous connections to an operation like that is your business. But I think there should be some transparency from them about this issues. There silence leaves me a little twitchy. It sounds like you may be a Relakks fan with any interest in keeping people from asking too many questions. Can you explain why they never respond to customer emails or pot to the "News" section on their web site when they are down for days on end? Seems that would be news.

They do respond to e-mails, but it seems like they only have one guy answering the mails of ~70.000 customers. So you have to write several times or use a rather rude subject like "WTF this is my 10th mail send a fcking reply!!!"

Well they seem to be a bunch of funny lazy guys and I think as long as they have more costumers than their Backbone servers can handle they won't work at the website at all (although I still hope they get at least Paypal working again!).

2008-03-21, 20:30
Can anyone connect today? Havent been able to for 12+ hours.

2008-03-22, 10:06
i can not connect today either.

2008-03-22, 13:08
Yeah down again today. Nothing works - domain name or IP's. The guys running Relakks are either rip off artists who are taking everyones money and doing nothing to keep the service up or they are total stoned morons who need to be put out of business for taking funds and not delivering service people pay for.

2008-05-21, 20:56
The ip 83.233.168.2 or 83.233.168.2 (pptp.relakks.com) doesnt respond on ping when i try it from my ISP at home (Telia) but they do respond if I ping those from my work (dont remember what ISP we have there).



Could it be that Telia has blocked the ips for pptp.relakks.com??

2008-06-05, 04:19

Are Relakks down again?

I just did a reboot (before i was connected) and now i keep getting Error 718. Am I the only one?

2008-09-06, 16:57
no, me too

2008-09-06, 17:09
It's been down in US for at least 14 hours. 718 error. The Relakks website offers no information on this outage. Support does not respond to email.



I suggest that everyone that is annoyed by this and other recent connection problems start to email support, and keep sending them email every few hours until they respond. I am really fed up with the crappy service.

2008-09-07, 01:12
Down over 24 hours now. I want my money back. Email sent.

2008-09-07, 10:15
Today it's working for me again

2008-11-08, 10:55
Experiencing downtime and establishing connection problems as of late.

2008-11-22, 20:27
Error connecting to Relakks - Error 800.

Haven't been able to connect for days now.

Still the case for me. Worked until 2 days ago. Since then no connection at all. Been redialing around the clock. Nothing.



Any news?

2009-01-18, 15:16
Hi,



can not login since today :-(



any news?

2009-01-18, 19:01
Seems to be comletely down - no ping to pptp.relakks.com or any other IP Address in the Relakks Range ...



Seems like the admins are sleeping today ...8)

2009-01-19, 11:43
There's definitely room for a competitor!



Labs2 are making money out of relakks, and not

giving that part of their business the attention it deserves.

www.relakks.com is now also down ... what the hell is going on there ?



Busted ? 8)

2009-01-19, 13:54
Down for me too... since sometime yesterday afternoon. I can get on the website no probs tho'. Since it dies over the weekend, hopefully they are working on the problem now.

2009-01-19, 14:10
Yes ... the Website is up again ... it was down 10 Minutes ... also the reseller web site was down.



Seems like they are working on "something" ...8)

2009-01-19, 20:18
Relakks is back... feel the love!

2009-01-20, 07:08
The love is felt :D!

2009-01-24, 00:38
Anyone having problems today? I can login ok... but after 5 minutes or so all internet/p2p drops... relakks stays up tho'. If I disconnect Relakks all connections resumed. Tried multiple machines previously working.

2009-01-24, 13:44
Hi

I am having the same problem.

2009-01-28, 22:00
Relakks still locks up for me... been about 5 days now. Some of my friends reporting the same issue. Extremely slow speeds followed by complete choke up of the connection... mailed support but no answer as yet :|

2009-01-31, 14:58
I'm still having the same problem. Used a different router and a neighbours router and got the same problem please give me any ifo you find out as i'm stumped.

2009-01-31, 16:35
I'm pretty much certain it's Relakks being unable to handle the connections. I reset my router to defaults, and tried another modem. No joy! But if I disconnect Relakks and use my 'Naked' ISP connection all works fine and I get over 200KB downloads!!



This can only be down to Relakks in my opinion.

2009-01-31, 19:12
Same issue here, hadn't tried a naked collection, but what would that have to do with can't handle connections. That would imply it stopped working over NAT connections. Anybody get any word from relakks as to whats happening?

2009-02-01, 00:39
You are right... I was verifying that my router could handle the connections without Relakks in order to rule the router out as the problem. My router coped just fine! Shame I had to expose myself for a short while to do it tho'!

2009-02-01, 00:41
I'm back on Relakks now... seems ok at the mo', fingers crossed the connection will stay up!

2009-02-05, 23:14
Has anyone else been getting really bad speeds on relakks lately? I've been seeing 20-30kb since the weekend.

2009-02-06, 01:21
Don't worry, I am sure this will improve greatly the next days, since it's now bye-bye-time for all those free-users. :cool:

No more free trial:

2009-02-06, 02:59
Hopefully :). It was working just fine when the free trials were available.

2009-02-07, 01:39
Yep super slow for me too... although it wasn't working at all a week ago so things are looking up ;)

2009-02-21, 19:24
I don't know about you guys, but Relakks is horribly slow for me since they reintroduced the pay-accounts!



Downloading at 10 kByte/sec at the moment with a recently purchased account! Was faster for me during the time when they gave the accounts away for free! What irony... :pinch:



What's up with those Relakks guys?? :unsure:

2009-03-02, 18:45
Have the speeds improved lately? Or are only some people suffering from this? I'd like to sign up, but with no free trials I need to know it's working at full capacity.

2009-04-04, 18:03
Since 30/3-09 Relakks VPN service has been a real pain in the ass for me (been using it for since it begun). It hangs randomly and more frequently at higher speeds.

Now Im beginning to look for alternative suppliers for VPN connections.

I simply had enough!

2009-04-06, 20:41
Seems like it's completely down now. Can't get passed Verifying Username and Password... it just times out with 718.



In fact I couldn't even get on their website just now!

2009-07-25, 12:22
Getting thsi topic quite UP, but looks like same issue here, Connection but timeout at user login with 718 error.



Website down too.



Is it just me or worldwide unRelakksed? :'(

2009-07-25, 13:41
relakks is really relaxing right now. :sick: it's down for me too and has been for hours.

2009-07-25, 14:21
seems to be back up now.

2009-07-26, 17:26
yep it's back up but website seems to stays down
