    We are using a Mac Mini for a server. We have our web page on a separate off site server. We came in and found that nobody on our local network can view our web page. This just "happened' without anybody changing any settings here or at the off site location.

    Any ideas? We didn't change any view permissions, etc. Don't even know where to start for a solution.

    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks very much for taking the time to respond and I realize that I'm going to need help from a pro.
    I'll post the solution once it has been resolved. Thanks again Oujmik and paulrbeers

    Can you clarify what is where an on what network? So you have a website on a remote server accessed via the internet? And you have a local network of some kind via which you connect to the internet? What is the Mac Mini server doing in this arrangement? Do you have a router or other network infrastructure?

    Okay so let's break down your issue:

    1. You have a separate server housed at an off site location that hosts your website correct?

    2. You have a Mac Mini that is your "server" for your office right? Is it a file server? Is it a DHCP server? Is it your router? What purpose does the Mini serve in your local network? If your Mac Mini acts as a router, are you using some kind of black list software on the Mini that has determined your website is malicious and therefore isn't allowing traffic from your network to your off-site hosted website?*

    3. All local computers can not access your off-site hosted website right? Can any of the local machines connect to the internet and browse other sites?

    * I'm guessing this is your issue and you just need to go in and white list your website on the black list software running the Mini.
