for, at least, a week i've been unable to view any pages over at www.head-in-the-clouds.com - every attempt just times out.

nor can i access the head in the clouds server using my, once working, FTP settings.

using a proxy service like "hide my ass" allows me to view the HITC website without any problem.

the question is...

does this look like my IP (or mac number) is being blocked by the HITC server, or does it look like my ISP is blocking access to the HITC server? or is it something else completely - or is it impossible to say?

it doesn't matter which computer i use in the house, i've not tried changing the router (so maybe that's the problem). everything worked fine up until this week - it's not like i've changed any network settings on the router or anywhere.

any ideas. thanks.

no, pinging just times out also, i.e.

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

and tracert doesn't seem to know where it's going...

It sounds like a DNS issue. Add more DNS servers & push them up in priority (#1, #2, etc.). Google has free ones available. There are more.

It's not your MAC address. That's not available on the network -- it's only on your local machine. Browsers do not broadcast that information.

p.s.

i forgot to mention i can't access any other websites that are hosted on the same server as www.head-in-the-clouds.com

not sure what that means or if it's helpful information.



Renegade, not sure if it's DNS either, well, i've had the google DNS settings in the router for months. this trouble started so i've gone back to automatically letting the router use my ISP's DNS - same problem.

i'll try open DNS and see what happens...

Try using some looking glasses. They'll help trouble shoot for you. Here's the Level3 Looking Glass. You can search for more, but that should be good enough.

DNS screw up - I keep coming across this with random sites and ISPs.

Try changing your router DNS settings to google's public DNS.

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

see if that helps.

If it does your ISP DNS is corrupt and it might take a while for it to get fixed.

I had a customer recently who couldn't access bmibaby.com for about 3 months - she called yesterday to say suddenly it works again. Of course the ISP denies all knowledge of a problem ...

Oh -- Another thought...

Try adding in a HOSTS entry for the site. That should help eliminate or confirm DNS problems.

Try running ipconfig /flushdns at a CLI to flush out XP's DNS cache also.

+1 -- I find that ISP DNS services are VERY often poor. I posted before about getting some pretty hosed results for Facebook. I've seen a lot of others as well.

As above -- A HOSTS entry can confirm/eliminate that problem. I never tried it for Facebook because large sites use CDNs and DDNS anyways.

google DNS and OpenDNS appear be equally bad. Tracert with OpenDNS provided similar results as posted above.

adding the ip to the hosts file doesn't appear to help either.

i can believe Carol is right as the problem simply just "happened" one day.

That's why I gave in and run my own DNS server now.  Haven't had a DNS problem since running it - apart from forgetting that the machine it's hosted on was turned off once or twice.

@nudone
From the tracert you posted, it almost seems like your IP is blocked at the remote end.  Since you're getting resolved IP addresses right up until the last hop that kind of implies the DNS servers are working.

Where's f0dder when you want him  :P

Did you flush after changing the HOSTS entry? That is extremely bizarre.

hmm, still times out after that. yep, flushed after changing the hosts entry.

remember though... this happens on any machine i connect to my router, so i can't see it being a problem beyond the router itself. i suppose i should dig another one out and try that.


4wd, that was my first suspicion. Timns (he has access to it) had a quick look at the server but thought there was nothing being blocked. i'm thinking there is something higher up that he isn't aware of - i've been blocked because someone has decided my FTP access was illegal or something.

The fact that sites on the same server are unavailable to you seems highly suggestive of you being blocked or filtered by whoever hosts the server at the 2nd last hop:

21   232 ms   233 ms   232 ms  OH-MLS1-609.Te-9-2.opentransfer.com [98.130.213.18]

Do other sites at the same host stop at the same point?

Oh yeah, since you have access to someone who has access to the server, can he check the server logs and see if your attempted connects appear?

yep, the requests start timing out at exactly the point after blah, blah, opentransfer.com [...]

Re: if proxy connection works - who is blocking me: my ISP or the server?
« Reply #18 on: October 08, 2010, 07:08:57 AM »
i'll ask Timns if he can check things out later, see if the server logs say anything.

incidently, my ip number has changed since yesterday so it looks like they aren't blocking me by a specific number - perhaps filtering me out though for a close match?

Renegade, are we saying this really isn't anything specific to me then - it's quite a wide problem?

From Renegades list, it looks like Ecommerce have a server problem.

As a temporary work around, you could try Hotspot Shield, (free VPN), that will save the trouble of continually working through an online proxy site.

PS: Here's the comic strip in case you were interested :)

A DNS problem on the server's end? Results from it actually being cached at the ISP level? (unlikely)

I've seen lots of weirdness in the last while on my end here. I've been wondering about it being DNS issues, but they're just messed up. Dunno...

Re: if proxy connection works - who is blocking me: my ISP or the server?

heheh. thanks, but i've seen the strip - Hide My Ass proxy let me get to the site pretty quick.



I'll see if Tim can answer anything later - if not, then I'll wait for the problem to magically resolve itself. If i'm not being blocked by the server then I don't mind so much - I can't get offended by that  :)

Everything (ftp and http) works fine with Hotspot Shield. (Seems it adds its own ad banners to the tops of pages though. No problem.)

The FTP access was the biggest problem so if the issues never gets resolved, at least, I know I can use something like HS as an FTP proxy.
