Wouldnt be ip related IMO.

sounds like some sort of security software on your PC....id add tugbbs.com to the list of exceptions...and or trusted sites.

Def not security software on my system(s) Brian as 1) I dont run sec software on my comps and 2) same laptop I can browse fine from at work but not at home.

I checked the router and there is no filter specifically set on tugbbs and nothing was changed inside of it either when it stopped working. I bypassed my router and went straight through my cable modem and still was unable to reach the tug forums.Ill try releasing the IP when I get home and see if I can get comcast to issue me a new one, however, the issue is 100% IP related which is why I asked if perhaps something was being done on your end to block certain ips/filtering/etc.

Yes, we block some IPs that have repeatedly and consistently been used by spammers. We try not to block dynamic IPs. I think, though, that blocked IPs see a notice from the board that their access has been blocked -- at least we've received complaints citing one.

PM me your home IP and I'll make sure it's not being blocked at this end.

Issue resolved. Comcast said that they were blocking my IP from accessing the IP that went to the BBS but couldn't give me a reason why. :rolleyes:

Back in business. :D
