Damn, I have to use my private proxy to access to my favorite site: BHW!

    My business DSL at my office has blocked BHW site for the last few days. I have to use my high speed private HTTPS proxy to access to this BHW.

    Anyone is experiencing the same problem as mine? I'm just curious.

    Sure it is not Sysadmin reviewing logs and blocked it on the local firewall? Strange that a Provider would actually block a site themselves

    try to flush DNS, clear cache

    it's a quite frequent problem here and there are threads about this all over the forum, but i haven't seen any "official" explanation so far from any of the mods/admins - which of course doesn't mean there wasn't any :) - why this is happening with those IP regions as well which isn't blocked by the site, it seems to be some kind of DNS error

    I use business DSL's DNS and Google DNS (8.8.4.4). I run my business here, hence I'm the "SYSOP".

    Based on the network analysis tools, it seems that Barracuda router used by the regional ISP is blacklisting BHW (maybe temporarily). :(

    At least I'm happy with my 1Gbps private proxy using my proxy tool FF plugin. :)

    I'll find out in the next several days as I'm bit busy on getting my overdue projects completed first.
