For some bizarre reason I go away for the weekend and return to find that the only web site in the world that I cannot access through ADSL at home is http://www.greenflame.org. Yet I can when I dial-up with the same ISP. Very, very annoying. But why? And why now after almost 3 years of using ADSL to access the site?
It’s not the iBook because the WinXP Acer and Kim’s Win2K HP laptop also have the problem, and I’ve tried various browsers too. It’s not the server because it’s visible on dial-up and I can FTP in to the site and ping it. Just web connections.
Can’t see any restrictions in the ADSL router. Why on the 24th Nov did it work and then on the 29th die a death? Web server logs don’t show my IP traffic even getting there.
Update: Well, it’s definitely just me. Others can post comments (thanks, Paul) and a variety of other people using different ISPs have viewed the site just fine. And it’s only port 80 by the looks of it. I can view pages if I use ports 8080 or 443 (SSL). Bizarre.
