WebFaction
Community site: login faq

When I try to access some of my webfaction sites (e.g. http://mono.company) I get a connection timeout. This only happens when I try to access a certain server. Sites on another server work just fine.

On the same WiFi network, when I try to do the same on Safari my iPad, it works just fine.

The specific error I get (in Chrome) is:

This webpage is not available ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

Here is a screenshot of the error.

  • I can ping the domains just fine using ping in the terminal
  • This happens in any browser e.g. in a clean Chrome Canary without plugins the same issue occurs
  • My hosts file looks fine ( https://gist.github.com/Wolfr/8e95198053a96f84cd79 )
  • I have tried with and without Google DNS (both ipv4 and ipv6)
  • The same problem occurs on a clean new user account
  • I have proxy set to autodiscovery (Mac OS default)
  • I don't have any VPN configured

Any help is appreciated.

Turns out my IP was blacklisted because of a suspected brute force attack.

Try adding an entry for mono.company to your hosts file on your laptop, and then try accessing the site.

If that works, then remove the hosts entry and then try flushing your local DNS cache.

Hope that helps!
