Sunday 6th Sale: Post Backdoor URLs in this thread if you get through

Recommended Posts

Any Host file editing that could help this year?

Advice I see on other threads is to completely alter the Host file used last year if you still have it.

- Windows Start Menu.

- Right click 'Notepad'.

- Run as administrator; click Yes

- File. Open. Computer. Local Disc C:. Windows. System32. Drivers. Etc.

- Change 'Text Documents' to 'All files'

- Open hosts

- Delete entry for glastonbury.seetickets.com

- Save. Close.

Alternatively, don't do it, use the three different server addresses obviously with the glastonbury.seetickets.com suffix and see how far you get. Report back.

194.168.202.201 glastonbury.seetickets.com

194.168.202.202 glastonbury.seetickets.com

194.168.202.218 glastonbury.seetickets.com

How does this work on a mac anyone?

Anyone reckon an edit of the host file with 194.168.202.218 would aid the cause?

no. it's only worth it if the See DNS stops givign that address out - so by adding it to your Hosts file you dont need the DNS.

since the domain already resolves to any of those IP addresses, editing the hosts file will do absolutely nothing to help :)

There's really no point. Essentially, at the moment, there's three booths for tickets, and your computer will try to get to any of them. By putting one of those in, it will only be directed to one of them, hence decreasing your chances. The reason it worked last year was because See was directing people down a certain route, thus leaving one of the booths empty.

cant you use the IP address of the server to get onto the pages? or is it not that simple

almost certainly not. the web server is probably expecting incoming traffic from a specific URL header so using just the IP might not get you anywhere.

Yeah, but what if you put all 3 in?

If you have any unix experience, open up terminal

sudo su -

vi /etc/hosts

If you've never used vi though, this will be interesting for you!

Is it these we can use in the host file?

dont bother at present. only of any use if and when DNS goes down or gets changed. keep an eye on this thread during the sale and if anythng changes someone will post it.

ugh vi, use nano instead (ie. nano /etc/hosts)

Firefox seems to be struggling with page refresh already. Chrome is working much faster.

No advantage in this - the IP's will be cached according to their TTL on your machine after your first of many visits / refreshes anyway. The only advantage gained was when See *ucked up their public DNS last time around. The 194. addresses all look legit this time around.
