I've been trying to access for the entire day but it doesn't load.

I've also tried using Google Chrome which also doesn't load. It seems to Time out.

If I use my mobile which is on 2degrees to access the website it works fine.

I have two friends on Telecom broadband which also works.

So i went to vtunnel and try to access using that and it also works.

Could someone please explain what the problem might be?

Does it timeout or come up with an error?

Flushed your DNS or cleared your browser cache?

Just tried the site & it's working on the VF corporate network. Will try it on my DSL when I get home but I'm fairly sure it will be working also.

Tried ipconfig /flushdns from command prompt. It still doesn't work.
On Google Chrome it says it can't connect to the website and on opera it says it cannot connect to the remote server. I tried accessing on a mobile using 2degrees data it works like normal but when I connect using to wifi  it doesn't load.


I also tried my laptop and it doesn't load.


But using Vtunnel on my desktop to access the website works 


Does this seem strange?

Are you using Vodafone DNS settings?

Do you have UFB, Cable, ADSL or VDSL?

I am on ADSL.
Don't use any DNS settings. It's set to automatic
