Problem with caching on Camino + IE on mac os

After switching domain ISP providers (or around that time) one of the mac machines in the office now cannot access our website , (the windows machines are fine)

anyway the error is

The requested URL /~photocall.info/public_html/ was not found on this server.

I have tried to clear everything I can but not being too up on my macs i really have no clue.

any ideas,

ta

Is the URL for their web site just a local URL for an intraweb, or is it accessible from the internet at large? Are their PC's set up to pick up the DNS from a local DNS server rather than from their ISP's DNS server.

On the Mac, try entering the following from the Terminal:

lookupd -flushcache

Try typing the full URL (complete with domain) into the location box of your browser and see what happens.

Is the Mac not finding any internet web sites, or is it having problems only with your local web site? What is the Mac using for its DNS server? What are the Ethernet settings in the Network Prefs panel?

I was thinking it was a dns thing. It finds every site it likes except this one that belongs to them

Its DHCP into a netgear router and I have reset the router etc etc,

its v strange

pick dns from the ISP mate. no server or DNS issues that I know of. they are just a 2 computer office. one pc and a mac.

the website is a www and is accessable from everywhere except that machine.

thanks

The terminal is a application found in Applications:Utilities at the root of the hard drive. Basically it is the same as the command prompt in Windows, but will run most Unix commands, rather than DOS commands.

Also, is the Mac set to DHCP in the Network Prefs Pane? (Pull down the Apple Menu to Preferences, select the Network Prefs Pane and check the TCP/IP settings under the Ethernet tab.

You could also try pinging the web site (using both the URL and the correct IP address) from terminal and run a tracert.
