- In Win 10, type in cmd, click the match for Command Prompt window.
- Alternatively, push Win+R and type cmd in the prompt to run.
- Type tracert forum.language-learners.org
- Copy and paste the results, it'll tell us how your PC is trying to connect.
I've had issues with Chrome caching DNS entries, but it usually only lasts an hour or so. You can also try flush your DNS cache, type ipconfig /flushdns in the command window.
And finally, check your hosts file. Possibly at some point you pointed it to an IP when the forum was launched? If so, remove the entry.
Edit: The tracert result will tell everyone what your IP address is, which you probably don't want to do. You can google "What is my IP" and replace your IP in the results with 127.0.0.1
I established a connection via Foxpro so I can (obviously) read this post. Prior to this, I uninstalled Chrome and Opera. I also used the 30-30-30 rule to flush my router. I can also connect via Safari on the iPod.
There was no \hosts subdirectory at c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts
I am going to reinstall Chrome now, but first I will post this, just in case. If Chrome won't connect to LLORG, I'll paste the traceroute.
Thanks a bunch for your help.
