    Access Denied (policy_denied)


    Anyone else had this and how did you get rid of it. Nothing has changed network wise ?

    What website are you trying to access? Some countries don't allow their people access to certain websites and you would probably see such an error.

    Have you spoken to your ISP? They sometimes can cause this error by blocking access to certain websites too.

    Only started playing up this morning, and I'm having trouble even accessing 'THIS' site.

    It seems to work if I refresh enough times then I eventually get in ? Very weird altogether.

    I know the cause. It's not osx's fault.

    It appears Three (3 Ireland) mobile broadbands problem.

    In order for them to be able to cope with peak time access - they block port 80 themselves, which means the majority of websites wont work properly.

    An utter stupid mess to do with an utter crap ISP :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
