Hi All,
I can access all my normal websites that I view except one.
It comes up with cannot find server page.

I have tried for hours to solve this in my internet options, disabling firewall.

I use either IE or Firefox

The site does work on other machines

The site is Betfair.com

Any information would be very grateful.

I only have so much hair left

Thanks and most grateful

Scott

Hi
The page says the following:

Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

Click the Back button to try another link.



Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer


I have formatted my machine and added nothing to it and it still doesn't work.
Could it be my IP ?

Thanks

Hi James,

I have contacted Betfair and they have given me a new address to use, which works !!!
So now I can use them.

I have tried to understand why I was unable to use that particular site and still none the wiser.
What you have suggested I have tried.

All other sites works except that particular one. It is not the end of this matter I endeavour to find out the problem.

All help is grateful, and much appreciated.

Thanks

Scott
