I have been trying to access my company's website for the last few days everyone else I know can reach it but me I can't even get a ping off it I also can't get ftp working. This is a major problem seeing as I need to access the site for my work. I can get to it threw proxy but I am not allowed to enter any company info threw proxy's or online ftp clients (security issue).
So any suggestions or do you know of anything?
I guess your ISP blocked the ports you needed with their firewall.
Visiting red.com won't help a bit, I guess, since this seems a website about some movie. The only two things I can think about are:
1. someone at your ISP didn't want you to know they blocked it (by accident maybe). So they told you to visit red.com and in the meantime they unblocked it while you thought it was the red.com thing instead of their firewall.
2. they needed your ip-number to unblock the site for your pc. By visiting a site they know you visit at that moment they can see in their logs which IP-number from their customers visited red.com at that moment, so then they knew your number and unblocked your companies site for you.
But maybe I'm wrong?
