Question Re: pipex throttling

I still use 443 but experiment! Remember, 443 is secure HTTP so they can't really throttle it outright, only shape it.
Another thing to remember with Pipex is that different realms (1-5) will see different performance rates as they experiment on each at different times. With that in mind, when asking about Pipex problems, always state which realm you're on.

Default Re: pipex throttling

Pipex customers are divided into "realms" depending on which central they're placed. You can tell which realm you're on by your login:
abcd12@xtremeX.pipex.net where X is a number that is equivalent to your realm. It will be 1 to 5.
