Can't access ssa.gov from outside USA

October 22, 2011 at 18:34:40
Specs: Windows 7
Have 3bb connection for my Windows 7 Basic with Google and Mozilla Firefox. From Chiang Mai (Thailand) I can access other .gov websites, but not for Social Security. Will not attempt to use a proxy as I need a secured connection. Any suggestions for this on-going problem with ssa.gov?

If it's being blocked, it's not going to be secured no matter what you do because there is a "man in the middle".

Did you try the IP address in the address bar instead of the domain name?

Tried the IP on all browsers but no luck.
Even installed OpenDNS and that did not work with the IP and the address name variations. Any other suggestions would be welcome. Just hope it doesn't get too technical.

If you have a friend in a place that isn't blocked & will allow you do create a remote desktop connection to his computer, you will be able to view the site using the browser on his machine. There are sites on how to create a remote desktop connection.

Thanks Guapo for suggestions. Was about to start remote connection, but re-installed OpenDNS and it worked on all browsers to access the ssa.gov website with no problems.
