    A coworker of mine is having a very specific problem loading our corporate website. He is a front-end developer who works on this website so it may have to do with some configuration that was originally implemented on his computer for development purposes, although we can't figure out what it is.

    The problem loading the website started after we launched our new website on a new server. He hasn't been able to load the new website since.

    We are finding that when he tries to access the url of the corporate website his computer is redirecting his browser to a local directory which isn't loading anything. This presumably wasn't happening before the website DNS changeover as he was able to access the public website before.

    His computer loads every other website fine. Everyone else's computer on the network loads the corporate website fine. It is not network-related as there aren't any network settings applied to any specific computer/MAC/IP/whatever and everyone else can load the website fine. Its not a DNS issue as every other computer loads it fine as do computers of people across the country.

    Any ideas?

    Found it. It was something in the hosts file.
