Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What does it mean by "Either the server rejected the request, or your computer is blocking me"?
Q. Why is there an outgoing connection when clicking the net-block button?
Q. Why have you used MSXML instead of URLDownloadToFile?


Q. What does it mean by "Either the server rejected the request, or your computer is blocking me"?
A. This message simply means the program could not access the site you requested because the connection was not permitted.

Typical causes for this will be either;

1. The site is blocked by the HOSTS file
2. The site is blocked by a security application running on your computer
3. The site is blocked by your ISP
4. The site is blocked by your firewall
5. The site was unavailable at the time of the connection request
6. The site rejected the connection request

Causes 1 - 4 can be tested by running the site through the online version of vURL at;

http://mysteryfcm.co.uk/?mode=vURL

Causes 5 will simply involve trying again at a later time

Cause 6 will unfortunately be alot more difficult to diagnose as you will have to try and determine why the request was blocked.

Q. Why is there an outgoing connection when clicking the net-block button?
A. The reason for this is because this information is pulled as soon as the button is clicked. It is not grabbed at the same time as the content itself.

Q. Why have you used MSXML instead of URLDownloadToFile?
A. The reason this has been used is to allow the website thats being queried, to know where the query is coming from. Whilst this is not necessary for the functionality of the program, it is a common courtesy.

Note: Due to request, as of 0.0.4, this program no longer uses this method but instead, uses the Windows API

Additional note (25-03-08): This program now includes an option of using either MS XML *OR* URLDownloadToFile()
