Can't access a particular web site from home

November 4, 2011 at 05:00:52
Specs: Windows 7 64bit, Intel core i7 8Gig
Can't access a particular web site from my home network.

Available till recently. Using cable modem and Linksys router. Can't get to one site I site I have admin rights to on ANY device on my network or using IE9, chrome, safari.

However I can get the site if I remote to another machine (not on my site,) or go through Anonymous Proxy

The cable modem is Scientific Atlanta and the router Linksys WRT54G and have always run Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Thanks in advance

Symantec is probably blocking it. They can kill anything.

This message does not particularly help me. Further experimentation shows that if I take the router out of the line and connect directly to the cable modem I can get to the site www.ictensw.org.au so it does not look like ISP or local symantec?

could it be that the server for the site is blocking an address I put out through the modem. I can't see any blocking that is being done on the modem. IE simple sits saying waiting for a response from ictensw.org.au ?

All other sites seem fine?

http://www.ictensw.org.au/ICTENSW/i...

That's the full URL I see when I open the site. Try that.

Also try the IP address

http://203.145.40.30

Do either of those work?

Your external IP is the same either way, AFAIK. It doesn't matter if you have the router on your LAN or not.

The extended address is where you end after a php instruction redirects you from the root directory. Whilst going through the router I still get "waiting for a response from.... either site address or IP.

It give no error other than timing out. It is as though the site has refused to respond to my network but why then does it respond when I'm direct to the cable modem?

I don't think it's the site unless the router is sending some malformed packets.

Look at the event viewer for error messages.
