    I have a problem. Its very important.

    xHamster's Free Porn Videos does not resolve on my PC. It says 'transferring data' but nothing ever loads. This happens in IE and Firefox.

    On a different PC on the same network though it loads straight away. I have checked the Hosts file on my PC and there is no xhamster entry in there.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? I really need a wank.

    Check to see if your firewall is blocking it.

    Thanks Steve but that's not it.

    I have the website working now in a fashion but only by using a proxy (the aptly named Hide My Ass! Free Proxy - Free Web Proxy - Free Anonymous Browsing).

    So it seems that the website itself is blocking my computer for some reason. Will it ever unblock me?

    I notice that its servers are static and only allow one connection at a time...the only thing that happened recently is I opened the same video in two videos and was downloading it at the same time.

    Maybe I've been blacklisted?

    It's possible. If they do, it's likely your IP address they're blocking and particularly so since you can access via the proxy.

    If you have a dynamic IP address (most are, if not sure check with your ISP) then when you go to bed, check to see what your IP address is and unplug your modem and leave it that way for at least 12 hours. When you restart it afterward, check the IP address again and see if it's different. The length of time you'll be stuck with you IP address varies from ISP to ISP, but 12 hours is fairly usual. Doing this routine won't necessarily guarantee you a new IP address, but it's worth the try. Most ISPs won't change your IP address even if you ask them unless you have a static IP. The long you leave your modem unplugged, the more likely it is you'll get a new IP address when you reboot everything.

    Thanks Jason. I do know about that. But I'd have to release the IP on every PC (there are three, with three different users) and then keep the modem unplugged for a long time. I don't think its possible or even worth it for a porn site.

    It is annoying, however.

    Thanks though :smile:
