No worries Ari - glad the idea helped. I've had a lot of help from forum
so it's good to pass something useful back.
I'm not 100% sure I understand what the problem is from your ISP's
explanation, but I'm assuming from what was said, whichever carrier/body
controls IP address space allocation in your part of Europe hadn't
enabled routing correctly.
Glad all is fixed.
