I have 2 network connections on my PC here at work (1 LAN and 1 over a tethered iPhone). Now I'd like to listen to music using Spotify. Since our firewall is blocking the connection to Spotify's servers I was thinking I could route the Spotify traffic through my tethered 3G connection.
Somewhere on the net, I found the following IP adresse for Spotify servers:
So I added the following route to the Windows XP routing table:
route add 188.8.131.52 MASK 255.255.255.255 172.20.10.1
But still I can't connect to Spotify.
Does anyone know if this is the way to go and if the Spotify IP is correct?
EDIT: I can ping the given IP Adresses. Pinging any other server (e.g. google) times out. For some reason our firewall admins are blocking any ping requests (outbound and inbound). So I figure that as I can ping the given IPs my routing is working. Still, Spotify cannot login. So there must be a problem. Probably the authentication process is failing as I'm staying in offline mode. Is there a way to figure out how Spotify is trying to connect to its servers?
