Hello EE
i have two web-sites that hosts the same provedier.
one web-site i can open from office
however another web-site i cannot open at all.
ive checked that the web-site can be opened from outside our office.
it looks like our Server 2003 blocked it from access or fire walled it...

what do you think and how to fix it?
i go right now to the server and will try to figure it out

A couple questions to clarify:

1) Are you using NAT translation to go from a public IP to a private one for these web sites?

2) Can you hit the web site from the server itself or using its private IP?

Depending on your answers to those questions, it sounds like it could be a local loop back issue on your perimeter firewall but without more info it's kind of hard to say.

it calls ZyXel

You should check with your sys admin (whoever manages the firewall) and ask if anything has changed.  I doubt it is a Server 2003 issue.

I think you're going to be out of luck until you can talk to your firewall admin, if that's even the cause of your issue.  Sorry I couldn't be more help.
