Specs: Windows XP, Intel Core 2 Duo
Hello

I am trying to contact the site www.mytruthonline.net from my laptop. It opens well with my desktop at work. At first I was receiving the "Oops! Internet Explorer cannot open the site" (although it did offer me a cached version). I have since upgraded to SP 3 on my XP and downloaded and installed the latest updates for Explorer 8. Now I am able to find the page on bing but on accessing it I get the message that IE cannot display the webpage". I have tried Fire-fox and also have had no luck. I have tried turning off the firewall on Norton 360 but still cant get to it. I ran a trace on it and got the results that a firewall may be blocking: ICMP (ping) packets/unwanted UDP packets/unwanted TCP packets. I have no idea what these mean and how to proceed from here.

I'm having the same problem with www.meetup.com

I don't have Norton but I disabled windows firewall which you should do too & it didn't help. ICMP seems to be blocked as well since I can't ping it. I have no other firewalls. I can open the site on my Unix box which goes through the same router. I'm lost too.

Doing a search on some search page does two things usually. It provides you with some set of results but it also acts like a proxy. The link to most search pages is a way to resolve the name.

To be sure, you need to test this with the command nslookup www.somewebsite.bz the similar but different somewebsite.bz.

Hang up and live.

At least in my case, the problem is not a DNS problem. I have already checked that. As you can see the domain name was resolved to an IP address but it still wouldn't ping.

C:\>ping meetup.com

Well I have turned off firewalls on both IE and Norton. I have also tried a DNS check and receive almost exactly the same results
