Re: This site can’t be reached

You cannot access this site directly through a Virgin connection. It is on the High Courts list of sites that must be blocked by all isps

Thanks

It might be a server end problem

Re: This site can’t be reached

Hi Harry,

I got similar problems.

I have tried to access many abroad websites, e.g., 

http://oc.zju.edu.cn/

http://faculty.dlut.edu.cn/2006011133/zh_CN/index.htm,

but not succeeded resulting in "This site can’t be reached".

When I switched the WiFi from Virgin to EE-BRIGHTBOX (our neighbour's WiFi), this problem disappeared. May I know how to solve this problem with Virgin?

Many thanks!

 

Cheers,

Sam

Re: This site can’t be reached

Both sites work for me. A bit slow opening but they are OK.

Re: This site can’t be reached

Hello

I believe that the site are actually blocking your IP address I have tried over a VPN using Opera and get this

This site can’t be reached

faculty.dlut.edu.cn refused to connect.

Try:
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
Check your internet connection.

Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
