Why can't I access certain sites

Hi all,

I've been asked to help out with a forum, the site is new (to be launched in late March) but I cannot access the site from my home PC although I can in work so I know there's nothing wrong with the site. I don't know enough about IE settings to be able to 'tweak' my own to allow access. Any suggestions?

It's the usual 'site not found' error message

Correction, this guy has two sites I can't access - this particular one goes to the MSN search screen 'We cannot find www......

Try reducing security settings (Tools/Internet Options and so on).

tried that, reduced to the absolute lowest -no joy. Settings are high in work, obviously, but don't have any problems accessing site there.

Can you post the site address here or if you don't want to broadcast it e-mail it to me using the yellow envelope. I will understand if you don't want to do this.

No problem giving the link, it'll be a public forum just not ready yet.

If I put the http:// in the toolbar, I get the 'cannot find server' error

....... sorry I meant the address bar, too many bars visited I think :lol

The site is down - tried in IE, Opera and Mozilla Firebird.
