    Hi, must be a Linux thing ? Maybe it's a Linux command or something ?

    It opens just fine on XP

    I don't think it is a Linux thing. It's pretty weird. It looks like a referral issue. check that, I am certain of it. I can cut and paste to a new tab and the site loads fine. If I click the link from the thread, it give me the 403 error. I used RefControl to block referrer for "http://bugs.id.au/firewall" and it loads. I can forge it to some other site and it loads. If I set a custom referrer of "http://www.wilderssecurity.com/" if gives me the 403 error. Same behavior in Windows XP too.

    @ chrisretusn

    Hi, & thanks for the info :thumb: I'm sure others "should" be pleased to hear you found a solution :)

    Before i saw your post, i did the following.

    I tried the IP instead 220.245.185.20 to see if that made a difference, & it did :D

    Doing that got me what some of you see ? Maybe those who tried the www could try the IP instead, as it "might" work that way for you

    Anyway, i've emailed the owner & asked him to look into it & post here ;)
