Trouble accessing the site

I'm hoping someone here can be smart and help me out.

Ever since the site had some issues about a week ago I've been unable to access it through my usual ISP. This may be related to the outage, or it may be related to swapping to a different plan and router at that exact same time.

For what it is worth, I am in Germany, with Telekom, using a Speedport Smart 3 on a Magenta ZuHause plan. Trying to go to the site just results in being told that the server is taking too long to respond. Have tried both with Telekom and Google DNS, for both IPv4 and IPv6.

Trying to go to the forum on emule-project.net tells me they can't determine my IP which I find odd to say the least.

I am currently connected using my cellphone as a hotspot and as you can probably tell from my ability to post, that works like a charm. I just don't really fancy having to swap around like that all the time to get my fix of TV shows.

So, any suggestions? Does anyone know if Telekom happened to put in a block for emule sites?

I know bumping is generally frowned upon, but this is just to say the problem hasn't cleared itself up. Suggestions on what to do are still welcome.

Have you tried VPN? You can test some free here https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... vpn+server
If it works with a VPN, maybe your ISP blocks STF. Here are some suggestions for some reliable VPN services: https://torrentfreak.com/which-vpn-serv ... on-140315/ (also check VPN Discounts, Offers and Coupons https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-discount-c ... ssvpn-pia/ , maybe some still works)

Alright, FreeOpenVPN works. It's cumbersome but beats having to stop everything I'm doing to see if there are new episodes to queue up. Thank you!
