What kind of error do you get?

by seanferd In reply to re cdcovers.cc website

Anything? Or will the page just not load?

Try http://www.cdcovers.cc/
Perhaps the browser in Vista is not prepending www., and it may be required.

Doubt if Vista is the culprit - it opens with Windows 7 Pro ..

by OldER Mycroft In reply to nothing

If it were a Vista problem, chances are it would be even worse in Windows 7.

What exactly do you mean "both are setup with roughly the same secuity setings" - ROUGHLY ??

Either the security settings are the same or they're different.

Have you checked ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to nothing

Any differences in what Add-Ons or Plug-Ins might exist in the Vista IE/FF3 as opposed to what's in the XP versions?

Is it the only site you have problems with?

by seanferd In reply to nothing

If not, you may wish to post the output of
ipconfig /all
(run from the command line) here.

You may also try flushing the browser cache (temporary internet files) and try again.

I don't see anything particular in there

by seanferd In reply to ipconfig file

unless you have consistent problems with name resolution as opposed to page loading. You seem to be properly connected to the router or modem.

However, you can, though it is probably not necessary, set TCP/IP not to append the connection-specific suffix (or have it append "." (without the quotes). If you do not use IPv6 at all, you can disable or uninstall it.

Test name resolution:
At the command prompt, type or copy & paste
nslookup cdcovers.cc.
Note the trailing dot. It must be used.

You should get 78.159.102.123, 78.159.102.124 as results.

Test name resolution:

by Castronzl In reply to I don't see anything part ...

My money is with Seanford - IP6

by IC-IT In reply to Test name resolution:

IP6 currently is a pain. Uninstall it and you will likely be able to reach the site.

Well, you get proper name resolution.

by seanferd In reply to Test name resolution:

So, I'd disable or uninstall IPv6, since it seems to be unused, and can be a bit flakey.

Also, which browser(s) do you use on Vista? If you are using IE 7 or 8 only, try engaging "compatibility mode". It is a long shot, but maybe... If this happens with a different browser on Vista as well, this doesn't apply.
