Linux users, problems connecting to LV?

Greetings,     I've just had a very nice letter from LV customer service. Great response, but they couldn't help.     I can't get to LV's website on my linux box. I could get to it from my Mac, which sees the internet through the linux box... Any other linux users have similar problems? (My mac's monitor died, so I'm kinda stuck.) I get a timeout, even with firewall and proxy off (scary!). Other vendor's sites work just fine. But I don't want to order from other vendors! Yes, I have the phone number, but that's just so 20th century.

what Browser are you using, and what is it telling lV it is, most of the linux browsers can mock another browser, works fine for me in opera, and fire fox, check your browser settings and change them to pretend your IE, ess if that helps

Perhaps they were down for a moment, or there could have been a temporary DNS resolution issue, or they could have blocked your subnet (some firewalls can be configured to drop the entire fourth octet at the first scan attempt). Still another possibility is that their server was refusing connections to non-MS clients. There are plenty of reasons for your issue. To test to see if it's browser related, you can ping the site. If ping works, try curling the site:
At shell: curl <site url>
The site's index page should be save to your home directory if it's online.

FWIW, I've been having trouble in the last week getting to grizzly.com. Seems to be a firewall problem at my end -- I switched recently and am having trouble with the config. Then again, maybe they have changed something on their site since I was last there. Even when I have supposedly disabled the firewall I still cannot connect. So, if you have not done so already, might consider your firewall. -- Igor

Thanks. I figured. I am going to have to fix the firewall.

First things first. 1) can you 'ping', or 'traceroute' to it by IP address? 2) can you 'ping', or 'traceroute' to it by IP name? 3) can you browse there by IP address? 4) can you 'telnet' to their server, specifying port 80 ? e.g. 'telnet www.leevalley.com 80' if that works (you get a connect), type 'GET / HTTP/1.0', and hit      return twice 5) you might want to investigate 'tcpdump', that will show the actual packets in/out.
Also, what _exactly_ is the error message? could be a DNS look-up failure. could be a listing in a 'hosts' file, over-riding the DNS look-up. could be a packet-filter issue either in the linux box itself, or in
there may be a difference btween the LINUX box and the MAC as to what server they are using to resolve DNS names

Your request for http://www.leevalley.com/ could not be fulfilled, because the connection to www.leevalley.com (207.35.224.158) could not be established.

my ISP returns DNS, also, `dig` works.

nope.
maybe. I turned off iptables and privoxy. no joy. Tried adding iptables rules to log 207.35.224.158 as source and dest; nothing ever came back from them. Maybe LV doesn't like my ISP? I'll have to ask whether they blackholed my ISP.
Thanks for taking the time to help. I appreciate it. This is really mysterious.

FWIW, I get the same thing, yet I can connect to the site just fine (RH9 / Moz 1.8a2). They are probably blocking ICMP at their border.

Are you on direct dial-out from your Linux desktop? If not, you should probably be listening on eth0.

That's the same address that I get here. DNS looks OK.
You may want to look at your routing table. I've seen weird stuff get in there and cause havoc.

I had trouble a couple years ago because I was using a proxy server (Junkbuster) to avoid ads and popups. The proxy was lying about my web browser and confusing their site into thinking I had a very old browser. Given that you're having a timeout I doubt that's your problem but it's worth a look.

I'm using privoxy, the successor to junkbuster. I have the linux box do dial-up; the mac goes through the linux box. Mac only saw LV when I skipped the proxy. So, yeah, junkbuster/privoxy has something to do with the problem. Curious thing is that the linux box can't see LV even with privoxy stopped.
