Re: Help: php website access problem
If you cannot get an IP address for the site, (ping usually displays
one before it starts pinging) there is a DNS problem, or there
simply *is no* IP address for the site. The problem might be on
your site or the DNS servers for the site might be down or unreachable.
If you cannot get an IP address for *any* name, chances are it's a
setting on your computer, or your connection to the Internet is
down, or your ISP's DNS servers are down. If it's one name that's
a problem, chances are it's a problem related to the site or its
Some sites do not allow ping coming in from the Internet. www.microsoft.com
is one example. This is not uncommon. Learn to live with it. traceroute
can tell you it's getting to the site's gateway, vs. not leaving your ISP
or stopping in the middle somewhere at a fiber cut.
If you cannot connect to port 80 of the site's IP address with telnet,
then the web server is down or unreachable. The problem might be anywhere
from a firewall on your system, to not having a usable connection to the
Internet, to a firewall blocking you, to trouble at the web site.
