Problems connecting to the www.dieselduck.net

Postby The Dieselduck » Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:43 am

I was experiencing some difficulties earlier this month with connecting to my own website, using the .ca and .net url. As it turned out other people were encountering this as well. My host affirms me that it wasn't a problem at their end, and suggest these steps. As it turns out, as soon as I was off my particular Bell network I was using, that was causing me problems, everything was working just fine.

If you are experiencing this problem, you can always use the http://www.dieselduck.info url.
My tech support people wrote about the problem as well...

If you are able to load the site through the proxy http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www. ... elduck.ca/ then it means that your local computer or ISP will need to flush its DNS. Here are instructions on how to flush your computer's DNS:

I had problems through Bell as well.
Now I can't remember my password to get on with that particular piece of electronics. Sucks to get old. :evil:

Martin, the shortcut to the forum on the main page is set to:
dieselduck.ca/forum

anyone who is having issues with that address will not get to the forum, as I just found out with my laptop.
