Hi,

Do you get any kind of error message when you try to access the site from one of these cafes? This would help us try to ascertain what the problem is.

Thanks,

Hmm... it sounds like something the internet cafe may have installed which prevents access to certain sites (a bit like a net nanny sort of thing), although I can't see why they would want to block this one.

Alternatively it could be the HTTP unauthorised access error, which you get if you try to access a protected site without the required credentials, but I can't see how that could be the case as the root of the site is not protected in such a way.

Have you tried asking the staff at the cafe? They should be able to help (I would hope!).

If you get the chance, try posting the entire error message exactly as it appears.

Good luck,

Can you confirm that this error message was received when you tried to access the UK-Learning front page (http://www.uk-learning.net), not some other page on the site? I ask this because such an error message could be obtained if an unauthorised user tried to access the moderator or administrator control panel.

This is very strange, it's like the UK-Learning webserver has got an access block set up on that internet cafe's IP address block or something, I'm lost as to why. I will contact the forum administrator and see if any similar problems have been reported in the past, or if he knows what might be causing it.

Kind Regards,

I did some research on the net - seems like you may have blocked an IP address, that is used by the internet cafe's they use a static IP address.

Sorry to be a pain but, this internet cafe has 160 computers shame that none will allow me to browse to this site, I guess I will browse here when i am out of town, sorry for all the inconveniance I have caused.

Thanks for all your help

Bye

It looks like it may be a problem at the internet cafe's end or something to do with their ISP. In that case, it's only they who can fix it.

I hope you find a way around your problems, good luck!
