ISP / Network / Firewall Problems

Question: Specific websites won’t work unless through proxy

 

Answer 1: Use Fiddler, run a session while you browse to a problematic site from a computer that doesn’t have the problem. Then do the same thing from a computer that does, both without a proxy and then a second session with a proxy. Compare the successes with the failures to see what’s different.

 

 

Answer 2: change the DNS to a specific local DNS server, rather than ‘getting automatically from ISP’. You might not have the same problem, in which case this won’t help, but the steps to solve my problem were:
  1. Look up a local DNS server (or two)
  2. Log-on to your router
  3. Change the “Domain Name Server (DNS) Address” from “Get Automatically From ISP” to the address(es) you found

 

If your still  having problems accessing the websites it could be that your own network provider is the cause.
To get around this you will need to install a VPN on your computer you can read about a  HERE
