why are my websites blocked
I can not access websites (inc. yahoo mail) that I was able to access only hours ago. Open DNS keeps blocking me. I opened Netgear genie days ago to set up parental controls. So I went back in and cleared all controls. Still unable to access simple websites. I am the network Administrator as it is just my home computer!!! I have read all previous comments, except nothing suggested is working. How can I get OpenDNS to leave my network alone?
Best is to raise a support ticket, so that OpenDNS staff can look into your account. Something is wrong with it.
There're is the problem with lpc sofware
Bypass account is only work one time if next time turn on pc you must reboot router every time this is no good
I have an interesting situation. www.midwayusa.com is being blocked on my computer. the reason why: "This site was categorized in: Weapons, Ecommerce/Shopping". So, I go to my setting which are on CUSTOM. Neither weapons or eCommerce/shopping are checked. I have even added this domain as ALWAYS ALLOW. But still weeks later, it is still blocked. Any suggestions?
Do you have an LPC enabled Netgear router why you post under "Netgear Live Parental Controls"? No matter...
"the reason why: "This site was categorized in: Weapons, Ecommerce/Shopping""
No, this message is not the reason why. It is just for your information. The block page does not know why something is blocked by your settings.
"Any suggestions? "
It may be related to the fact that www.midwayusa.com is an alias (CNAME) for the real name www.midwayusa.com.ssopt.net. Does this ring a bell with you that you could have blocked this, or a higher level like net or ssopt.net?
If not, visit your blocked domain stats to possibly find the related domain(s): https://dashboard.opendns.com/stats/all/blockeddomains
If openDNS does not block anything then why is everything blocked on my network?? i have not set up any blocked sites! because you guys do not have one!!
What does "everything blocked on my network" mean? Can you post a screen shot? Is it really OpenDNS?
(Well, at least this forum is not blocked for you...)
Yes it is! and i used my work computer to pull up this form! Who are you? You give smart a** answers buy you are not with OpenDNS!! because there accounts say "OpenDNS" under there name!
Oops! wrong board! and every time i go to a website it is blocked on every computer on my network!! i have to use my work computer to do anything!
Post a screen shot of this here.
I enjoy this person, rotblitz. I hope we can be friends in my System Administering endeavors.
why OpenDSN is blocking some websides. I cannot access my email. All I get is the screen with "Sorry, but mail.yahoo.com is blocked on this network. " Powered by OpenDNS.
How can I delete my account with OpenDNS ?Perhaps, this would help?
No, deleting your account would help in no way. It's not your account at OpenDNS, but the configuration of your network.
Not sure why you want to get rid of OpenDNS. Apparently you wanted it at some time. Better correct your settings at https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/ to not block e.g. the webmail category.
Saying you didn't configure to use OpenDNS? Well, then another person having access to your computer or router configured it. Talk to them!
In case neither of these is an option for you, follow this: https://support.opendns.com/entries/23553235-How-do-I-Disable-OpenDNS-Completely-
I can not open my gmail and yahoo account. Is there any way ? If you couls help me I will be very happy.
@kuradas Assuming you're intentionally using OpenDNS on your own network, you probably need to set your dashboard web content filter settings to unblock webmail. If that doen't help after flushing your DNS cache, post a link to a print screen showing the error your get when you're blocked from gmail
If you're on someone else's network, you'll need to contact that network's admin.
Some website has been block by DNS please teach me how to sole this problem Facebook and Twitter has been block .
Visit your dashboard to not block what you don't want to have blocked. It's all your settings.
here I am contemplating using the Open DNS and judging by the issues attempting to be sorted here and the idiotic answers I have made up my mind that I don't need to add another layer of possible problems to my computer work.
why not stop unhelpful, time wasting clowns like rotblitz from taking up peoples time...?
why im not able to access my gmail account
i have remove all the things which it want
i was just trying to block some things but i am not able to access at all i want the ans
Why not? What exactly happens?
Just started using O-DNS on Win8.1 OS, HP laptop, using latest FF and IE...made my blocking suggestions in my dashboard. Now, a few days later, my browsers won't allow access to my sports websites (such as ESPN, etc.), which I did NOT want blocked (left unchecked)...there are no Open DNS "block" webpage alerts, just the fact that I can't even log in. My login credentials are ineffective. Thank you for any assistance. Doc
No OpenDNS block pages? Then it's most likely not OpenDNS.
Just in case, check your stats to see what is blocked: https://dashboard.opendns.com/stats/all/blockeddomains And see if your IP address is correctly registered: https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/
No, it's because this stupid thing blocks every stinking thing on the web after a while. Every single thing of mine is blocked, and I cannot find the place to change that. Do you want to know why? Because it isn't on here. And that is for a very bad reason.
The websites that aren't blocked say "Your connection is not private. Attackers might be trying to steal your information from 'website' ( For example, messages, passwords, or credit cards)" And if you are using Google Chrome , it says that AND "But luckily, Google stopped it before any information was transferred." Now, some of you may be wondering, "Who on Earth could this attacker be?" Well I'll tell you who it is. It's this dumba** counterfeit site, that's who it is.
What counterfeit site are you referring to? The messages that you refer to are not like any OpenDNS message I have ever heard of. When OpenDNS blocks something there is some sort of message that specifically says it is taking the action. In this case the message you quote is referring to Google, not OpenDNS. Have you received any messages that OpenDNS is blocking that websites that you say are not working for you?
OpenDNS does not simply add itself to people's networks or computers. Someone with administrative control over your computer or network had to add and configure the service. They, or someone else with administrative access will need to either reconfigure your OpenDNS settings, or configure things so that OpenDNS is no longer being used, and some other DNS service is used in it's place.
If you are the system administrator, and you are actually getting messages that OpenDNS has blocked something then I'll be able to suggest some places to look. Otherwise you will need to bring your concerns to your system administrator to have them look into things for you.
@mpriest76 Why did you come here to post? Wouldn't have Facebook, Twitter or the likes done it? (I know, there are people who post something whenever they see a form on a web page. I'm afraid this habit came with Facebook and Twitter.)
