One of the slashdot posts
"Interestingly, Virgin Media (well, the part that used to be NTL)
simplifies this for themselves by hijacking DNS requests; by which I
mean it doesn't matter what you set your DNS to (such as OpenDNS) - all
DNS requests go to the ISP DNS servers.
I ran into this a few years back when I was using NTL, which I now do not."
I'm aware that AOL used to ( still do ? ) transparently proxy port 25 (
smtp ) to their own SMTP servers ( ie no SMTP auth or STARTTLS was
available to people from aol dialup/broadband )
How can I tell if my ISP is fiddling with my packets ?
