    Hi,

    Since 5 days ago when I try to visit www.facebook.com I get rerouted to http://developers.facebook.com/ ??

    I have tried using Firefox, Safari and Opera but I get the same redirection?

    When I type in http://www.facebook.com/home.php I get the following error:
    Not Found

    The requested URL /home.php was not found on this server.

    I can still access http://m.facebook.com/ ..

    I've contacted my ISP and they say no one has reported this issue?

    I have Snow Leopard.

    Appreciate your help.

    Cheers,
    Mohammad

    Can you go into Terminal (in the Utilities folder) and type the following at the prompt:

    host facebook.com

    Paste the results back here. Then type in:

    host developers.facebook.com

    Paste those results as well.

    You can also try flushing your DNS cache. Still in the terminal, type the following:

    dscacheutil -flushcache

    You won't get any results back from that. I usually do that 3-4 times in a row.

    Then try your browsers again....I'd clear any cache in the browsers as well.

    Here are the results:

    host facebook.com
    facebook.com has address 69.63.187.19
    facebook.com has address 69.63.184.142
    facebook.com has address 69.63.187.17
    facebook.com has address 69.63.181.11
    facebook.com has address 69.63.181.12
    facebook.com mail is handled by 10 mx.snc1.tfbnw.net.
    facebook.com mail is handled by 10 mx.sf2p.tfbnw.net.

    host developers.facebook.com
    developers.facebook.com is an alias for developer.facebook.com.
    developer.facebook.com has address 69.63.178.31

    I flushed my cache, but still not luck.. and I also have tried http://www.facebook.com/ still the same result!! :confused:

    Well, that all looks normal.

    I'm assuming if you try to go to: 69.63.187.19 Facebook will load?

    Very odd. Your machine is resolving the name correctly, but the browsers are redirecting.

    I know this is very *Windows* of me, but have you tried a reboot?

    You could try changing your DNS settings to the OpenDNS servers.

    It was actually a couple of days since I had rebooted.. so I did now.. but still the same problem.

    After trying http://69.63.187.19/ I get the main page.. screen shot attached..

    the funny thing is the login section only has an email entry and no password.. when I click any of the links I get a server not found error?

    I get the same thing when going to the IP address. I'm sure it's not really setup to handle direct IP requests.

    At this point I'm stumped. Maybe some networking gurus have some more ideas.
