Today all of sudden I cannot FTP any files to my server and I cannot access any of my websites in any browser.
When I looked at Norton it says the website was submitted for further suspicious analysis. I contacted my webserver hosts who say that all of my websites are accessible and working fine.
Running version 188.8.131.52

Well, hmf that didn't last long. The same thing happened again.
I surfed around the net and read various bits and pieces but no real solution. In the end I came up with the idea that it must be something to do with the router blocking the FTP and browser visits to this one particular site. I logged into the router, sniffed around there for a while, seems like a lot of gobbledeegook, decided to uncheck the Firewall option.
Went to pour the coffee, came back - browser comes up with the site, FTP working like a charm. It is now 16:54 and we are still happily going along...
Note: The firewall option comes with the router. Perhaps it was having an issue with Norton?

I must mention that I did restart the router a number of times, the last one being for more than a minute to clear the whatsis. So, I don't have a definite solution to what I did as I tried numerous things, including disabling Norton firewall for a bit. Norton is now back on and everythng seems to be working OK.
