Hi yorkie

Check CFPs Logs (Activity tab) to see what is being blocked. Also, as a test, you can set CFPs Security Level to “Allow All”. Remember to set it back to “Custom” on the system tray. If it works and you can get to your BTYahoo home page, then CFP is the cause of the problem. If it still doesn’t work, then it is probably something else other than CFP. You can post clips of your Log here if you need help.

i set to allow all and my homepage comes up as soon as i set it to custom it fails to show i have attached the log if this can help
but still all other web sites i use work fine just my home page one

many thanks

We’ll need a bit more detail to get to the bottom of the problem, as the bulk of the log entries relate to Windows networking (these are the entries that mention port 138) and there are several entries relating to Thunderbird that suggest you can receive emails.

Can you let us know the following;

  1. Are you connected to the internet through a router?
  2. If so, what is it’s internal IP address?
  3. Do you have a single computer, or do you have more than one PC connected as a network?
  4. If you have more than one PC, what are the local IP addresses?
  5. If you connect to the internet through a modem do you use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)?
  6. Is the home page you mention on a server somewhere on the internet or is it on a PC inside your network?

If you need any help working these out, just let us know and we’ll step you through it.

It might seem intimidating, but the answers are generally fairly easy to implement. Hang in there.
