    I have a client who has a MacBook Pro and yesterday the computer wasn't able to get to http sites. Only https. He has VMWare Fusion installed also and even the windows side in IE does the same thing.

    The weird thing is he can ping and it pings (so we know it's not DNS), he can "telnet 80" and it connects to the webserver and shows the HTML code (so we know it's not something with port 80). We checked the proxies setting in Network and there is nothing checked. Compared all the settings from another MacBook that is working and all settings are the same.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? There is not backup to revert to.

    We figured it out. It was a filter software called Covenant Eyes that he was somehow logged out of. Once he logged in everything started working normally. Hope this thread helps someone else down the road.
