Cannot connect to particular website from PlusNet

Not a DNS problem, but:

I am trying to contact website at

http://www.ultimatecharger.com/

I cannot connect to their server.

If I try to ping their address:
PING 66.109.223.74 (66.109.223.74): 56 data bytes
92 bytes from mail.microlinkdenver.com (66.109.223.74): Destination Port Unreachable
Vr HL TOS Len ID Flg off TTL Pro cks Src Dst
4 5 00 0054 0113 0 0000 35 01 a234 192.168.0.2 66.109.223.74

However a friend with another ISP has no problem getting to this address and gets a response to his pings.

It is not a DNS problem as I can resolve the IP Address OK

host http://www.ultimatecharger.com
http://www.ultimatecharger.com has address 66.109.223.74

Could it be that that server is blacklisting Plusnet IP addresses ?

I would be interested in whether you can connect to that address?

Many thanks.

Well I never, this is very odd. Why me? Sad

Perhaps you're just special mate! :lol:

Incidentally tracert revealed my DNS is looking to the same IP, thus it seems pretty unlikely that its a DNS issue.

(Ping works fine too here, most peculiar)

I have raised a ticket and also asked a friend who can contact the server if he can email and ask if they know any reason I cannot access them.

I can only suspect that perhaps they have a firewall blocking a range of IP addresses that perhaps were causing trouble (not me I hasten to add).

Are you connecting through a router?

If so, what Ip address is your computer set to by the router (not your plusnet ip address)?

Hi braeside

I just tried and can't get through to that server unless I use a web proxy.

I am not using PN's DNS atm, I am using opendns servers, so I think your conclusion regarding IP range ban seems the most likely!

I can't access this web site, not even if I put the IP address in. Is it a problem with the gateway used? I'm on pte-ag1 at the moment.

Ok - many thanks to all who have replied - so it seems it is not -just- me.

BTW what web proxy can I try?

ptn-ag2 here.

Note pinging the IP address does get some sort of reply, so the packets get there, but we are refused any access.

PING 66.109.223.74 (66.109.223.74): 56 data bytes
92 bytes from mail.microlinkdenver.com (66.109.223.74): Destination Port Unreachable

A couple of web proxies you could try. They seem quite slow though.

I'm on ptn-ag1 atm, but I'm gonna go do some hopping because I've realised I have awful response times on that gateway just now.

EDIT
BTW IP is in the 212.159.xxx.xxx range.

My ip is in the 212.159.xxx.xxx range, as also is braeside's. The ones that can access the site have ip's of 81.xxx.xxx.xxx or 84.xxx.xxx.xxx. So the problem is blocking of certain ip address range.

Im in 212.56.xxx.xxx

I have emailed the site - hope the email also doesn't get blocked.

Thanks again folks for all of your kind help.
