Re: Linux resources

Are you daisy chaining through some university or research servers? Try and aim for as direct a connection as possible.

Or are you trying to log on from an institution of some kind?

Re: Linux resources

No no, I'm using my home 100/100 and I'm not using any proxy or routing table.

Strangely enough I get through if I try with my mobile through WiFi on my own network so it seems to me that windows is blocked

Gonna try with linux..

Nope, I can't access through linux either.

This is really weird. I can access through my phone through my wireless on the same router but not my computer...
