Madasafish is becoming fishy...
Thursday 07 September 2000 01:00:00 by Sebastien Lahtinen

When TheMatrix drew our attention to Madasafish'es comments about ICQ not working, we decided take action to confirm this.

A support advisor at Madasafish did openly admit "ICQ will not work" and added "but it will not affect anything else like web browsing". This is apparently because of a private address that is assigned to each host, instead of a public one. This severely restricts what one can do on an ADSL line.

We hope that service providers will provide different configurations, including something for those who want to use remote control or file sharing to access their systems, or anything similar. This may also go some way to explain the problems their users have experienced trying to get 'online'.
