    Problems accessing vbforums.com

    Hi

    I appreciate they may be a difficult question to answer, but Firefox gives me a 'The connection has timed out' whenever I try to access this site (using win 7 PC).

    I'm only on here and posting now as i've come through a web proxy (kproxy).

    I know the site is up as I check with https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

    My tech support guys insists there is no filtering or anything set up on the router which would block the site.

    I have another PC on the same network (win 10) which also cannot access.

    I've tried Chrome and Internet Explorer (I was desperate!) with the same results.

    Can anyone suggest what might be wrong? - or a way of diagnosing this?

    Thanks!

    Can you do a traceroute to vbforums.com? What results do you get with that?

    I don't know how to interpret this? - does it show anything?

    It looks like you got to QuinStreet's server (VBForums, etc.) before timing out. I would say that something is blocking you at that point.

    OK, that makes sense - but it doesn't seem like there's much I can do from here without knowing why I'm being blocked?

    Could it be my IP is somehow associated with something nasty maybe?

    Don't make me lie... But your ISP might not like some of the ads we have here.
