Unable to access site from Navy network at work
As of a few weeks ago I have been unable to reach the site from work. For the year prior to that I could access the site just fine. When I try to get to the forums I get the following error message:
The computer is on the Navy Marine Corps Internet (NMCI). It's a Win7 machine running Internet Explorer (I think it's IE8); there's no other browser, and we can't install software so there's no way for me to try another browser. I don't believe the problem is on my end, anyway (see next paragraph).
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.
A communication error occurred: ""
If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact the NMCI Service Desk at 866.843.6624. Please provide the exact URL (web site address) you were attempting to access, along with the specific error message.
I called the NMCI Service Desk and the tech that I spoke with was also unable to get the site to load - he saw the same error message - so it's not something with my desktop or my settings. That makes me wonder if the site is blocking access from NMCI IPs or something along those lines?
FWIW, www.corral.net (a Mustang site I also visit) has been giving me the same indications for the same period of time.
