I'm experiencing some odd, inconsistent problems with accessing sportbikes.net. I have connections inside and outside my company's proxy. Inside the proxy, can't reach the site. Errors as if I've typed in some bogus domain name.

Disconnect from the internal LAN - fire up the external WIFI, which is outside the proxy, and I STILL can't reach the site. Same conditions.

Walk over to a machine physically connected to the same Ethernet segment the WIFI NIC was associated to, no problem. Things work fine. Was browsing the site normally up until about 9:45am Central.

Can ping the server on the physically connected external machine.
Cannot ping on the WIFI, same segment. Very strange.

interesting but i have not had any problems for the past few days other than it gets slow at times but i think that is more on my puter than anything else.

I have not been able to log on to SBN from work for the past week. I think they blocked it.

hmmmm....Strange, been working great for me. In fact, it has been running the fastest I ever seen it run, because it seems to be running so fast, I figured Fred and Ducman must have finally got rid of some dead weight.

My ISP at home also can't resolve the "sportbikes.net" name. So, that makes my Internet connection at work and at home that can't reach this server. I'm dialed into a free NetZero accont right now and as you can see since I'm posting...no problem. I'm checking another ISP later today.

Iwonder if there have been any DNS changes/problems lately.

Something is afoot at the network layer.

C:\WINDOWS>ping sportbikes.net

Pinging sportbikes.net [64.246.62.108] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 64.246.62.108:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),
Neither my home nor work subnets can ping sportbikes.net. If I configure my web browser at home to use some arbitrary anonymous proxy I can reach the site just fine. There is some access control at play here on the server and/or the provider's network. Fred will be away for the next few weeks so I'll just have to proxy my access at home and go without while at work, as I can't proxy there.
