    When I type www.myspace.com into my Safari Browser window, I get a Safari drop down that says to view this area you need to log in to area DI-64. Your password will be sent in the clear.
    I used to be able to hit cancel and the website would pop up. i got the same drop down intermittently through my session and could just hit cancel and continue. It won't work with my myspace password and when I hit cancel now the webaddress comes up with the address: http//192.168.0.1:80/block.htm and it won't reload without the dropdown coming up and stopping my browsing.
    Either way I can't get to myspace. I'm in iraq deployed and get a lot of traffic from family and friends on myspace and would really like to get back to it.

    Can anyone help?

    I believe that is a router's home address, meaning that it is trying to block the website.

    It's most probably being blocked by the router (kind of like what they do at schools so you can't access myspace/youtube etc). If it is, there might be some kind of proxy that lets you bypass the security procedures. BUT it would go against your ISP terms and conditions (which Im assuming you get from your base...).

    Anyways, good luck on Iraq :).

    Looks like DoD has blocked Myspace along with Youtube due to network traffic concerns.
    Warning if you're in Iraq: Link has youtube videos :)

    Thanks for the quick replies

    That relieves me a bit. I thought I had a glitch with my MAC. It has been awesome for the deployment over 13 months of problem free operation. I'm on a commercial feed, so I'll have to check and see if it was blocked. Worked two days ago so I'll check on it.

    Thanks again, gotta go fly.

    Paul
