Spent three weeks in Tbilisi, Georgia, works fine from there using any browser.

Germany still not possible, except when using TOR.

We'll be moving soon; I hope that will clear up your problem.

It seem to work fine from Sweden.
I taught Germany was in the same region, but perhaps not...


The Bullet

Works from Austria (business trip), but still not from Germany (except when using TOR).
Still curious what causes this.

Only TOR works.

Any updates?

I expect it will be resolved once I finally get my s#!t together and arrange new hosting for BG.

PS: You have bookmarked brassgoggles.net, haven't you?

I have tried .net and .co.uk. Both only work with TOR.

As I understand it, the problem is most likely the firewall on our current host, and so currently all domain names will have the same problem. Once we move, those firewall problems should go away. Unfortunately the domains brassgoggles.co.uk and brassgoggles.org will also go away, as proteus still holds the registration and we are unable to contact him. After the move, BG will only be accessible at brassgoggles.net, so we need everyone to bookmark it now.

the-wizard has just messaged me to say he has adjusted the firewall ruleset. Please let me know if it has made a difference.

Thanks!

Now both ways (.co.uk and .net) work.
