All B.Serrano's vsts are awesome, but his website has disappeared, and so all the links here are dead. Is there another way to download his synths, I've got a lot of them, but I'm missing a few like this one.

What are you telling? Benoit's website works perfect at this minute. I just checked it and there is no problem.

You're right BlackWinny, Benoit's website is working. Thanks.

However, I am unable to access his site from any link on the web. But after reading your comment I tried accessing via a proxy site and it worked. I downloaded a lot of his vsts a few weeks back, maybe the server blocked my ip because I downloaded too many at the same time. I can't think of any other reason...

Hmm... Not sure that it is the reason. If someone blocked temporarily your access to Benoit's website it is not its server. Because Benoit uses the provider "Free.fr" (which is a powerful and free hosting service for the customers of its own ISP services) for the hosting of his website and "Free.fr" never blocks its websites to an IP for any reason (I know... I myself use "Free" too for one of my websites). I rather suspect a technical incident. Or perhaps that it is your own provider who has blocked temporarily your access, suspecting an attempt of Denial Of Service Attack from your IP then later released (or will release) the interdiction of access to this domain name. I know that there are several ISP which proceed that way, a bit abrupt in my opinion. To tell you how much the hosting service "Free.fr" is very tolerant itself... a few years ago I had downloaded all Benoit's website (absolutely all in a single operation, and I do that way quite often for certain websites when it is a wise method so of course not for all the websites) on my hard disk by using Winhttrack (a wonderful free tool) to make a "home mirror" (it is perfectly legal, because with this tool there is never any attempt to enter in private parts and it is also perfectly legal as long as it is made strictly for personal use), it took about 30 minutes to download all Benoit's website (it is a very intensive operation for the network lines)... and since that day about every semester (or when Benoit announces an update or a new plugin) I simply refresh my home mirror by an update of my home mirror (the tool re-download only the files which have changed since its last download traced by its own timestamp), a brief operation which takes about 5 to 10 minutes max each time.

When someone blocks the access to a domain name from an IP, generally it is a security rule stated more by the engines of the ISP of the user rather than by the hosting service of the website owner (which is named "Free.fr" in this present case). Incidentally it explains also why a VPN or an external proxy made the operation run correctly to the end in your case.

It certainly is a weird case. I downloaded about 10 files originally, I don't remember doing anything unusual. Still no access directly.

I hope it clears itself up in the end, I wouldn't want to miss any of Benoit's updates.
