I'm looking for some expertise on problems I'm having accessing the Applefritter website.
The problem is, I can't. Not from home, at least. From work, it's no problem.
From home, I can ping www.applefritter.com and get a response, but can't load the site.
I've been using my Linux router, and changed the MTU in case that was the problem. Nope.
I've used ClampMSS so the router will convert the Intranet MTU of 1500 to 1492 needed for PPPoE. Nope.
I've gone back to the x486 version of the router, I've gone back to my Linksys router.
I've tried from five different computers. No luck.
It's not just Applefritter. I can't get on www.lileks.com either.
I've also tried accessing the site by IP# instead of www.
I can access Applefritter if I use an anonymous proxy, so the problem seems to be more where I'm coming from than where I'm going.
It's not my specific IP, because my router(s) use a dynamic IP for Sympatico access.
My only theory is some ISPs have blocked traffic from Sympatico - possibly due to spamming originating from a Sympatico account. I've read before some ISPs will take a zero tolerence policy with other ISPs and just lock them out for x amount of time. But I have no way of verifying that.
Theories and ideas are welcome...
