Peer block not updating

Since the servers were telling us these lists hadn't been updated since 1/29/2012 (for "Level1"/"P2P" at least), we were displaying a message "No update available". Note that Peer Block won't let you check for updates more often than once every 12 hours, but if you delete your *files as giblet mentioned above you can "trick" Peer Block into allowing this check.

And even if you deleted your local cached lists to force a new download, the servers were only giving us the last new file they knew of . Otherwise your next regularly scheduled list-download should pick up the new lists for you automatically.

I am running Windows XP Professional and know that I do have a good connection to the internet.

I have tried re-starting Peer Block and also running the update tool from the program itself not just the auto update. The problem has resolved itself and is updating like it should. If I see the problem again here soon I will be posting again and getting the information to you soon.

I have Peer Block starting up when windows starts up.

It will go ahead and auto update and download as needed it.

The fact remains: the Peer Guardian list servers are notoriously unreliable, and I still strongly recommend that people update their Peer Block configuration to switch over to the lists outlined in this post.

As of right now ( PM EST on 8/9/09) the servers belonging to Phoenix Labs appear to be down - or at least extremely slow to respond - and have apparently been so for most of the weekend thus far.After closing the List Manager window, Peer Block should automatically download the updated blocklists and re-generate the list cache. Or, if you're more of a "visual learner", i Blocklist has a video tutorial of this available.The only remotely confusing part of this whole process may be selecting which of the i Blocklist lists you should use.Users may transmit both text and video messages and may exchange digital documents such as images, text, and video. At the end of 2010, there were over 660 million worldwide users, with over 300 million estimated active each month as of August 2015.First released in August 2003, Skype was created by the Swede Niklas Zennström and the Dane Janus Friis, in cooperation with Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu, and Jaan Tallinn, Estonians who developed the backend that was also used in the music-sharing application Kazaa.The trick is that the original Peer Guardian renamed some of these lists to make them more meaningful, and Peer Block has so far kept that renaming.
