    Sorry, don't know if this is the right place for this guys, but it definitely isn't black hat, just wondering if you guys could help me out. I have a bunch of auto blogs up, all domains hosted at hostgator, using wordpress. Thing is, I'm at training/class right now, and under a military firewall. For some reason, I can't access any of my sites, it's saying:
    "Error Accessing The DNS Server
    The DNS Server is not available or not able to repond to the Proxy request. "

    Now, at first I just thought our firewalls blog any type of blog/wordpress sites, but I've been able to get on other WP sites ,and even blackhatforum, which is pretty crazy. Anyways, was hoping you guys can take a look at it, and see if there is somethign wrong with my hosting account or something, or some settings I have somewhere. Here's one of my sites:

    lowestrateloans.org.

    Thanks guys, looking forward to your input.

    This sounds like you are behind a proxy or transparent proxy which rejects the connection in a strange way or it can not get the dns answer from hostgator temporarily ?
    Never seen such a message.

    try to flush your dns :
    A reboot does this, but a quicker way to make sure that you're using the most current DNS information is to open a command shell, and enter the following:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    This might not be available on all Windows versions in which case you still may want to do that reboot.

    goodluck!

    reboot won't work, this is how it is on any computer i get on behind this military firewall. Apparently all military networks can't get on those sites..thing is, it's just my site I can't get on. Have no problems or issues with other wordpress blogs.

    go to hostgator and use their chat support to solve the problem, they helped me a lot. I had similar issues
