    Can't view list of the forums from the main forum page

    I don't know if it is our Sophos firewall, or something else, but I can't seem to get a list of the forums when on the main forum page.

    The page shows everything but the forum list. If I go to "new posts" or something like that, I can see lists of new posts, and this is how I got to this forum.

    I suspect it is due to ads being blocked, as there is reference to Yahoo below - this is the error detail (I get the "page completed with errors" in the bottom left hand corner of IE)

    Webpage error details
    User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; InfoPath.2; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)
    Timestamp: Wed, 8 Sep 2010 13:12:04 UTC


    Message: 'YAHOO.plugin.Dispatcher' is null or not an object
    Line: 80
    Char: 39
    Code: 0
    URI:
    http://www.edugeek.net/forums/


    Is it likely to be our firewall, and if so, what am I looking to get unblocked?

    Unable to do that. My network connection is locked down tighter than a tight thing, so I can't download anything. I'm new here, so don't yet quite know how things tick. Might be the school policy to have such restrictions in place, or just my access through the firewall needs configuring. Not entirely sure yet.

    Browser workaround, or internal firewall config?

    Can't you be added to a Staff Proxy that allows access for .exe's etc?

    Not sure, this is what I need to find out. Wanted to be sure what the problem was before I go barging in demanding sites are whitelisted though!

    Sounds like you need to assert some authority there!

    That is your reason then - the link is one of the libraries used on the forum page for whatever reason. It'd need unblocking to get it working.

  10. Thanks to localzuk from:

    Thanks for that. I suspected the firewall, but needed to identify the element that was causing the problem. Thanks for your help.

    What do they get categorised as?
    Those are all part of a JS framework in use in TONS of websites so them being blocked could break a lot of things.
    Also check if cdn1.edugeek.net and cdn2.edugeek.net work okay?

    Both reach an Apache test page.

    Thats fine, at least I know they work.
    When the other url was blocked did it have a category and also what filtering do you use out of interest in case we can check for others having the same issue?
