View Full Version : IP address blocked till restart

As far as I can tell this is not an application specific issue... but?

I am experiencing a problem reaching just one particular website URL - my reseller control panel. After extensive troubleshooting I discover:

- the site can be accessed from another computer in my office or elsewhere
- the site is still "unavailable" after clearing cookies in Firefox or trying from a different browser (Chrome) that has never visited the site before.
- I can reach any other website including my hosted domains

After rebooting my Mac (mini 2.53 Intel OS 10.6.2) connection is re-established.

I tinker within the site's framework for a while then lose the connection again. Last night I didn't actually reboot but put the computer to sleep overnight which seemed to resolve the problem.

I look at the OSI model and it could be anywhere from layer 3 to layer 6?
Why just the one site?
Can anyone help me understand what part of the system is failing?

Sounds weird, I assume you tried a ping test? You could also try resetting your dns cache (go into terminal and type: dscacheutil -flushcache). Could be a router issue as well.
