Troubles accessing some websites

Need Answer

Hi everyone,


I'm having some problems in accessing https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com ... and I was wondering if the issue is on my side or could be related to something else.


What I mean by trouble is the fact that the website doesn't actually load, but without giving any error or timeout.

Thanks for help,

Virgil

Hi Tim,


unfortunately, the answer is no, it doesn't load ... that one ... and some others....

So, I guess the problem should be on my side, if for you is working.


Thanks for clarification,

Virgil

I tried it as well. If SSL support is tuned off, the site loads. If SSL support is turned on, the side doesn't load on my computer as well (tested in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome)

Thank you for confirmation @Zwirbel ... appreciate it ... I got the same results on all browsers I've tested.


@Tim : maybe you can give us some hints about your configuration (if possible).


Thank again

One other thing I just noticed (for macOS users/Safari browser) :

Can anyone confirm this? (it's been 2 days since I have restarted by eBlocker, that is why).


Thanks for help

I have tested this website with:


  • macOS: Safari, Opera, Firefox, Vivaldi, Chome
  • Windows 10: egde, IE
  • Linux: Opera, Firefox, Vivaldi, Chome


I was able to load the website with all constellations.


Does you use any kind of anti virus software, or the same add-on in all your browsers?

Hi Tim,


I have no AV software installed. I am using some add-blocker, but I don't think that is the issue.

Like @Zwirbel mentioned, if I disable the SSL support, works.


At the moment, I had to power-off the eblocker, as I was having a lot of websites that didn't load, and it was interfering with my daily work.

One other thing I did see is a degradation of speed, especially with SSL + VPN enabled. I am always using a VPN connection, therefor I know there might be some speed deprecation ... but it became too slow.

Ok, for my part, I have found the problem. I use Avast Internet Security. If I have "SSL-Scanning" turned on, some sites don't load. However, if I turn it off, everything works!
