  1. Unable to access website via FQDN or IP


    Hello,


    Hoping someone can assist with this mind boggling issue I have at work.


    We have a website we're trying to access from within our work network, but for some strange reason we just get the standard "this site can't be reached" error.


    I have gone into our Firewall (Sophos UTM 9) and ran some diagnostics through the logging of Web Filtering. I started off by running standard request to Google, Facebook etc. Just to ensure that they were being picked up by the logging and my private IP address was listed, it was. Great news, I thought, so I then went to the site I need to access, nothing, no logs whatsoever.


    This then leads me to only think that the request to this specific site isn't even hitting the firewall and therefore really only leaves DNS (happy for someone to give me some pointers if you think it could be anything else other than DNS related).


    I then went into my host file and added the IP address and FQDN there to see if this would work, still no luck...


    Any help is appreciated...


    P.s. I can access the site from my personal mobile, I can also hotspot and connect to my phone's internet connection and access the site this way through my work laptop, so it's something within our network that's stopping the connecting.

    :)

  3. Unable to access YouTube websites on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge on Windows 10

    Hi,

    As you are facing issues with accessing the YouTube on Windows browsers, do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    Provide us additional information to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the complete error message/ error code while trying to access the web pages?
    • Does this issue specific only with YouTube?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?

    Try the below workarounds to identify what is causing the issue:

    • Try to access YouTube in different browser and check if it is working fine. This will let us know if the issue is with the website/ the Microsoft browsers.
    • Also, try to access different website on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

    Try the below troubleshooting steps to access the website and check if it helps.

    Method 1: For Internet Explorer

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key, type
      troubleshooting
      and select it.
    • Click on View all in the left pane.
    • Click on Internet Explorer Performance
      and follow the onscreen instructions.

    Step 2: If the issue is only on Internet Explorer and to specific website, I suggest you to view the website in compatibility view to check if the issue is confined to compatibility.

    Steps to view the website in compatibility view:

    • Open Internet Explorer
      and open the website.
    • Click on Gear/ Settings icon at the right-top corner of the window.
    • Click on Compatibility View Settings, click on Add
      to add the website and click on Close.
    • Reopen the website and check if the issue persists.

    Step 3: If the issue still persists, I suggest you to access the website in
    InPrivate mode and check.

    InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing what sites you visited and what you looked at on the web. You can start InPrivate
    Browsing from the New Tab page or the Safety button.

    Steps to open the browser in InPrivate mode:

    Open Internet Explorer, press Shift+Ctrl+P
    to open the browser in InPrivate mode and try to access the website.

    Method 2: For Microsoft Edge:

    I suggest you to check if the Adobe Flash player is enabled on Microsoft Edge.

    • Open Microsoft Edge, click on More actions
      (...) in the right-top corner of Microsoft Edge window.
    • Click on Settings, scroll down and click on
      Advanced settings
      .
    • Enable Use Adobe Flash Player
    • Check if the issue persists with accessing the YouTube websites.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status to access YouTube website on Microsoft browsers for further

    assistance.

    Thank you.
