    I get a forbidden message every time I want to go to my website using my Mac.. but when I use my brother's PC, it works fine.

    The message I get is:
    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    Does anyone know what I could do to fix it? I tried clearing the Cache, deleting the cookies, and still doesn't work...

    Someone please help!

    what browser are you using on your mac? have you tried other browsers?

    what's the url so we can check too...

    my first guess the webserver is limiting to particular browsers... i.e. ignoring mac browsers

    I'm using IE 5.1 but I also get the same message when I open a Netscape browser. The link is it opens on my brother's PC and my friend's Mac, but it doesn't open on mine ( I have an OS 9.1)

    My site worked fine on my computer before I switched web hosting.

    OK.. I went to the site you gave me. I tried the anonymizer and it worked by accessing the following link: So, I guess my IP was banned.. by who I don't know... how do I fix that? no clue.. do you think I should contact my cable modem company and maybe change my IP address?

    Thanks for your help!
