Neither I nor my friend can access his website. We share a connection. I have checked with a host and they made sure that the firewall rules were reset and the firewall itself was restarted. we can get to the site through proxies, but when accessing from either computer the error "The server at www.XHIS_siteX.com is taking too long to respond." pops-up. I tried disconnecting the router and connecting straight through the modem ( cable modem through Shaw) still to no avail. I know it isn't the server where the site is so I am thinking that there must be something wrong on my end. Anybody got any suggestions? Thank You.
