Up until now, I've been able to access the Eggheadforum from work while on breaks. With this change to the new software platform, I'm now blocked by the company firewall. Arrrrgh!

(I'm currently remoted out of the system to another PC, which does still have access, but it's not a viable workaround for long-term use).

  • Probably listed as a type of "chat room" and nanny-scope on firewall got it.

  • I'll look into our settings to see if there is anything we can do different so your firewall does see us as a chat room.

    Rob, you'll need to move it off of Vanillas site. That is what is being blocked. If y'all move it to the Big Green Egg® web server that issue will likely go away.

    That's what I was about to say. It's the "vanillaforums" website that's being blocked, as it's a known host for forums (as opposed to, which the firewall gods don't know about).

    Yaaay ... it now works! Yesterday, it was a bit goofy, and would only load the text, and not any of the page formatting, but today, all is well with the layout, -and- it's not being blocked.
