Microsoft network with 2k dc and xp pro/2k pro ws's.  All running behind a linksys router connected to an adtran which has a T1 connected to it.  Network seems to work fine and I can access the internet.  There are some urls that I can not access (i.e www.abss.nc.us).  I called a friend at another business and he has no problem getting to the site.  I tried firefox and ie with no luck.  They both seem to time out.  Any ideas?  Thanks Dale

Well, I can't seem to open it.

Is it something that started today ? May be the site is down and the guy you called have looked at the browser cached version ?

Have him navigate onto different pages on the site and see if he can.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Call your friend who can access it.

Ask him to do a nslookup for this domain and send you the IP address.

For doing nslookup, open command prompt.
Start->run->cmd

nslookup www.abss.nc.us

This should return some IP address.

So sorry experts.  I gave you the wrong address.  Try this one,

www.abss.k12.nc.us.

This is the IP address: 216.166.215.68

Try and do a tracert to this address.

See, if you ISP is blocking access to this IP.

That is better, I can reach it.

Try to do the nslookup for this particular domain along with what Prashsax mentioned.

It could be possible that ICMP is disabled by your ISP thats why you don't see any hops at all.

Can you do a tracert for say google.com

If you can't then for sure ICMP is disabled.

In that case, use TRACETCP.
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=88080&package_id=92014&release_id=329356
Its a software to do tracert using TCP instead of icmp.

Syntax is:
tracetcp 216.166.215.68:80 -m 30

what about remote traces to this ip/domain

Trace Route's Externally


In case you need to perform some traceroutes
just pick one of the trace servers below, fire up
telnet and connect to the selected host
then just enter the command "trace host"
e.g. trace www.google.com or trace 64.233.179.104
and look at the trace results; those servers come
handy when it comes to diagnosing connectivity or
speed issues since they allow you to perform
some cross tests and point out which routing node
is causing issues or slowing down your traffic

here we go ...

route-server.ip.att.net         ATT Route Server
ner-routes.bbnplanet.net        BBN Planet NER Route Server
route-server.cerf.net           CerfNet Route Server
route-server.colt.net           Colt Internet Route Server
route-server-ap.exodus.net      Exodus Communications Asia Route Server
route-server-eu.exodus.net      Exodus Communications Europe Route Server
route-server.exodus.net         Exodus Communications USA Route Server
route-server.gblx.net           Global Crossing Route Server
216.18.63.214                   Group Telecom Route Server
route-server.he.net             Hurricane Electric Route Server
route-views.oregon-ix.net       Oregon Exchange Route Server
route-server.as5388.net         Planet Online Route Server
route-server.savvis.net         SAVVIS Communications Route Server
grh.sixxs.net                   SixXS GRH Route Server
route-views.on.bb.telus.com     TELUS Eastern Canada Route Server
route-views.ab.bb.telus.com     TELUS Western Canada Route Server
route-server.ip.tiscali.net     Tiscali Route Server

btw there are some more, but I think the above servers may
suffice for most "quick diagnostic" purposes you may have :)

I fixed the problem myself by power cycling my linksys router.  I guess it was holding on to an old route to this particular url.  Thanks for your help anyway experts.
