I managed to access the site using the network probes within Telecom that can make requests from a number of sites across the country.  No issues for me.




I work for Spark, but as always my views are my own.

freitasm: Read sbiddle's reply.


sbiddle: They've presumbly blocked access from NZ - only the website host themselves could really answer this for you.


I can access the site through TelstraClear.

I've just had a similar problem and the site firewall was blocking me. It sounds like the same for you. When I did a trace route it would always time out in the US one jump before the site host.

The site I couldn't access has a lot of anti-spam protection because 99% of comments and new registered users are spammers and trolls.

Visited at 11:15am on TelstraClear Cable with nothing special in the way (no VPN programs, alt DNS's or such. Just straight out of the box cable)
