My guess is that you and your wife don't have permission to access the remote server. I would contact the administrator of the server and ask for access.

On mine it goes to Troyers--some shopping site I guess--and asks for a user name and password. Those may be stored in your cookies. Try deleting your cookies and then try the site again. Maybe you can at least get to the login page.

Do you even get to the Troyer's login page and what browser are you using?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If your blocked in your host file the web site won't load. Only open the host file with notepad. --------- C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

Other possibilities include third party firewall (if any) and Restricted Sites in IE. I have known browser Reset solve these at odd times. In IE that is Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Reset button. There are similar arrangements in other browsers.

"I do not get to login page on any browser"

That still leaves the possibility of it being blocked in Hosts, in a third party firewall if you have one(?) or in the router firewall. Also, you might have some other security program on-board that is blocking it

You can eliminate Hosts from the equation by going to the path already given (C > Windows > System32 > drivers > etc). In the "etc" folder you will find a file named Hosts. Temporarily disable it by renaming it to XHosts then see if it makes any difference. Rename it back to just plain Hosts if you still can't reach the website. If it fixes the issue come back and we will look into the reason.

Derek,

Can you explain how it could be blocked by a firewall?
