    vps, site not accessible and winxp question


    I have a question I hope someone can answer. I am unable to directly view a site hosted on a vps server with my winxp computer. The site will not load in any of my browsers. FF message: Unable to connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server

    However if I go to pagewash and visit the site from there the site does load. Is this a winxp issue or something else? DNS misconfiguration?

    thanks for any help

    It could be a bunch of things like cached DNS on your PC, a firewall on the VPS blocking your IP or even a routing issue between both networks.

    If the website is accessible from other system or other location, it is definitely problem in your local system. It's difficult to tell the main root cause.

    It shouldn't be an issue with a specific OS, it should be something other than that
