    Anyone else having trouble accessing

    Code:
    http://clickbank.com
    I've checked my firewall, tried a proxy but still can't access the site?

    Anyone else had this?

    No... That link don't work either:

    Code:
    https://www.clickbank.com/login.htm
    I have never had this trouble before. Just can't make it out?

    If anyone gets 5 minutes could they go to clickbank and see if
    their support says anything about access problems.

    Appreciated.

    Once in a while I'll have a site that I cannot access no matter what I do.

    Quick fix.......unplug your modem/router for a minute then reconnect.

    Should solve your problem. :)

    Thanks for that suggestion Diva,

    Unfortunately it didn't work. I'm really puzzled by this. I've googled
    the problem but cannot see a fix.

    Find a proxy site, and try to hit CB through that. If you can, you have a connectivity problem, in that your ISP and whoever hosts CB are not talking to each other.

    If the problem is not fixed in a day or two, then open a ticket with your ISP, and figure out why you can't get through.

    Thanks Mattstrike,

    Went through hidemyass and connected straight away although couldn't get a connection through foxyproxy (firefox). This has been happening on and off for a few days so i'll contact my isp. I've also flushed my dns but that still didn't help. Thanks all for your help.

    No problem.

    Sometimes two ISPs will have trouble talking to each other, it is usually a routing problem somewhere upstream, but once they know about it, their network techs will be able to figure it out.

    The fact that an external proxy worked, though, and an internal proxy did not, makes me suspect that something might be wrong locally. If you have not tried it yet, try resetting your router/broadband modem. Sometimes those devices can get a corrupted routing table, and screw up connectivity to some IP ranges.

    Done as you suggested and went to my isp. Searched the forums and seems that they have been having trouble with their dns for the past couple of weeks and it's blocking certain websites.

    They are working to get things working properly but for now i've managed to get a temporary opendns fix that's allowing me to connect to clickbank.

    Thanks fror your help

    DNS would explain it perfectly. An external proxy would work, and an internal one would not, because it still relies on local DNS.

    Glad I could help, hopefully your ISP gets it sorted out quickly.
