Under Webblocker; go to Advanced tab; under Server Timeout; I think you have set the option to:
Deny access to the web site
You can either change the action to Allow; or go to Servers tab and ensure that the IP listed for server has webblocker database installed.

For more information on webblocker look at links below:
