[CQ-Contest] Is there any HTTP cluster streams (not telnet)?

I would say that in the case of a corporate firewall interfering with connections to the spotting network, the preferred solution is to use a non-corporate computer and put your personal cell phone into hotspot mode for connectivity.

I have been known to do this on occasion when I need to go into the office, and there is a DXpedition I think I can catch during a coffee break that might not be available on that band/mode when I get home or back to the hotel.

Alternatively, it may be worth checking out DX spotting apps for your cell phone if you have a good data plan.

Have the same problem (same company network as Sterling).  Our company blocks telnet (and ICQ, etc).  No chance to access telnet sites via the internet access we are supplied.  Too risky for a network with 150,000+ people connected + equipment.  We have been using 2M DX Packetcluster but both LA area ones are off the air.  Still working to get one hopefully going again.  Need to feed HTTP (or something) DX feeds into logging program for radio control, needs, etc.  Reading HTTP feeds and manually going to the frequency is so old school!
