Default Why won't these Army sites load?

It's driving me crazy. Certain - not all - US Army websites will not load for me, at either my work or home. Basically I mean J's garrison's website, and his battalion's website too. I connected to his garrison website once, a few months ago, and since then it just times out and I get a "cannot connect to server" message. I've tried many times over the past month, and not once has it connected.

It drives me nuts because other Army sites will load for me e.g. Fort Lewis, Fort Hood, which I tried as a test. But the ones I actually want to look at - y'know, maybe for news on how the deployment is going, or a chaplain/FRG contact number...of course not.

Can anyone suggest why this might be the case? Could it be because I'm trying to connect from Australia, or is that a dumb thing to think?

Strange, I wouldn't think that it is due to you being in a different country, I never had a problem with US military websites back in England. Want to PM the website so I can see if it works for me??

I know some of them have security certificates that you have to click yes to when they pop up. Do you have a pop up blocker on?? I know that I can't view like AKO without accepting the security certificate.

There are not security certificates on the sites she is talking about

Then I have no clue, it was the only thing I could think of.

Default Re: Why won't these Army sites load?

I could not access most USMC official websites (usually the ones ending with .mil) from Brazil either. Sadly, there's no way of fixing that. When I inquired about it, they told me some sites do not allow access outside of the US and some specific foreign countries.



PITA, eh?

Thanks Guys. It wasn't a security issue. My friend who lives two streets over can view them just fine. I called Tech Support at my ISP and although they were kind of lame to begin with, they taught me how to do a traceroute and discover that all the US Army sites in Germany are run off a server in Stuttgart, which was hanging up on me everytime I tried to access the sites.

My ISP fixed it for about half a day, but now it doesn't work again. I'm tempted to change ISPs.
