  • Hmmm what company is the website through and what port is it running on?
    Is it using IIS or Apache etc?

    Do you have any 3rd party firewalls?

    Is this website based on the net actually? If so can you access other websites?

    If its a website hosted on your local machine then its the localhost (127.0.0.1) address that you will be accessing it with which means you need to have access to your 127.0.0.1.

     

    With these answers we can all get a better idea of the issue we are dealing with.

  • Only solution I see for you is from the Advanced Firewall config.

     

    To access it please follow these steps:

    Control Panel

    Windows Firewall

    Advanced Settings

    Connection Security Rules

     


    There is no other place I can see to do this in Windows Vista/7. Not unless you running an aftermarket firewall and/or block from your router.

     

    Hope this answers what you need.

  • Thank you, Tim. I tried, but didn't work. I am trying to access the control panel of my new web site, and the web host people told me that the query IP address is blocked on my side, and I can unblock it via the list of active blocks. Will keep searching. Thanks again.
