    Hi, I cannot connect to warez-bb.org and I have read many posts and tried many different solutions but to no avail. So far I have tried:

    ping in terminal
    telnet in terminal
    traceroute in terminal
    reseting router and my Mac
    using safari and chrome
    using a proxy
    accessing it via it's IP address: 119.42.146.35

    Currently I have Leopard, 10.5.8 and am using Firefox 3.6.

    Please note, I CAN access this website through windows running on Parallels on the same machine, on my windows based laptop AND my Mac running both Tiger and Snow Leopard all using the same router.

    My conclusion is that it is specific to my machine but only the Mac part...

    Any suggestions.

    Thank you

    Matt

    Try turning off PeerGuardian. That IP is on one of its block lists.

    Thank you so much. Do you know of any alternatives to PeerGuardian or at least how I can allow access to warez while keeping PeerGuardian turned on?

    Cheers

    That's easy. From the Phoenix Labs PeerGuardian FAQs:-
