Hi all,

I've been asked to help out with a forum, the site is new (to be launched in late March) but I cannot access the site from my home PC although I can in work so I know there's nothing wrong with the site. I don't know enough about IE settings to be able to 'tweak' my own to allow access. Any suggestions?

Try reducing security settings (Tools/Internet Options and so on).

tried that, reduced to the absolute lowest -no joy. Settings are high in work, obviously, but don't have any problems accessing site there.

Can you post the site address here or if you don't want to broadcast it e-mail it to me using the yellow envelope. I will understand if you don't want to do this.

No problem giving the link, it'll be a public forum just not ready yet.

The site is down - tried in IE, Opera and Mozilla Firebird.
