I think somehow it is on a restricted zone in Internet Explorer, but it's not in the list.

I've got antivirus and antispyware and I've shut those down but still can't connect.

My host file is the default one.

Any ideas?

The site is not down, it's me somehow.

I put the site in trusted zone, but that didn't help.

All these restricted sites, I didn't put them there. There is a long list of them. How did they get there? I'm assuming one of the anti spyware put them there.

Can't visit that either, it was in anohter thread on the bonus forum here. Seems to be a restricted site on my IE.

Damn time for Firefox or Mozilla or whatever I guess.

Very interesting result on this one. It wasn't IE or anything.

What it was was that I have a wireless router and I had disabled "allow ipsec passthrough" and a couple other VPN passthroughs. Virtual Private Networking.

So I changed it to allow those passthroughs, and that did the track.


I was downloading a TV show from a binary newsgroup, you know, newsgroup thing, and my speed doubled! So now my download speeds for direct access like newsgroup servers are around 4Mbps. Nice.
