Strange - since about four days I've been seeing these messages:

_________________________________________________________

The connection has timed out

The server at status.nortondns.com is taking too long to respond.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi, 00360. I just tried the sites and they are accessible. Try this link

That link works but not status/setup.nortondns.com.

I have been using 198.153.192.40 and 198.153.194.40 a long time. Status/setup allways worked.

Switched to 199.85.126.10 and 199.85.127.10 and loading these pages got slower and slower.

Now I can not load them at all. Also tried switching back to the old IP numbers - no remedy.

Tried one ISP via USB-modem and another via cable-modem - same result.

Tried Firefox, Google and IE - same result.

Yesterday Firofox showed this when connecting to status.nortondns.com:

XML Parsing Error: unexpected parser state Location: jar:file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Firefox/omni.ja!/chrome/toolkit/content/global/netError.xhtml Line Number 308, Column 50:

<div id="ed_netReset">&netReset.longDesc;</div>

Any idea what is going on here?

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

It may also have been a slow day yesterday. It took ages on my normally quickish speeds, to download a 4.5mB program !....

Still having the same problem - this is not a temporary problem!

Any educated guess - why is the connection timing out all the time?

Hi,00360. Not sure why that would be happening.

There was an issue with the new numbers in that the Norton DNS site didn't recognise the new numbers, and stated that I wasn't using DNS !

Others have reported the same problem, and I too, have reverted to the old numbers, with no issues.
