Why can't I access a weblink from one computer and not another?

Hello

I have two Dell desktops
T7500 workstation with XP Pro 64 bit installed
Optiflex 960 Dual Quad with XP Pro 32 installed
Neither computer can access the following website
                            http://flets-east.jp
The optiflex has Japanese language pack installed the other one doesn't.

I can however access the page from my Acer Aspire Laptop which has Windows 7 installed.

I have tried turning off anti virus and firewall without effect. Also tried with IE Chrome and Firefox

Can anyone can help

Hi iezweb

The site you gave www.flets-east.com is the same company but not the same site
I have had this out with NTT already. I do need to access   http:/flets-east.jp as nothing else will do.
strange how it works on my laptop and some other people's computers

The site isn't working, maybe on your laptop it displays from cache, if you wat to verify that press ctrl+f5 or clear cache from browser.

I think andreizz was correct, the site is either experiencing problems or down.
Or it only support IPv6

That reference IP you got is an IP version 6 which I believe is still not fully functional on XP machines.

See this below:

www.flets-east.jp               no IPv4  has IPv6  2404:1a8:ff06::1 (failed)

It isn't IPv6 problem my computer supports IPv6, the website is just down.

You can test your IPv6 compatibility here http://test-ipv6.com/

andreizzCommented:
maybe the website is making the appropriate changes for IPv6 and that's why it's down.

I think you are correct I do vaguely remember the NTT technician online saying something about XP and IPv4 and 6. They may have came to same conclusion in that it does not work on XP.
Bearing in mind I live in Japan and translations are tough going as I don't speak Japanese.

Hi Andreizz

Thanks for your patience.
I tried to do the test for IPv6 comapability and my desktops with XP and my Laptop with Windows 7 both failed the test. I can only run IPv4 on any of my computers.
The website is not down as I can login using my laptop
I cannot login using my desktops.
I found this out when on the phone for nearly 3 hours with the tel/internet co. NTT
The website works fine. My laptop is logged in as I speak.
I use a link on the site to test my internet speed. It was 344.45mbps when I was talking to NTT. a day or so ago. Blistering fast with speeds unobtainable outside of Japan
It may be blocked to users outside of Japan. I am only guessing of course. and only works with Windows 7....... I am really struggling to find a reason. I am sure the tech people in NTT will know but it is a very time consuming ordeal to get to the reason
Thanks again
Ian

For your desktops if you don't want to install windows 7 or vista try a ubuntu live cd to see if that's the problem.

I suppose the website is limited to Japan.. cause elsehow can't imagine why it wouldn.t work..

Hope you find a solution!
