Had huge truble with these forums,
I initially thought: I hadn't been activated. Now I know it was my firewall. Just to let users know that to use the forums you have to turn your firwall off well I did anyway. I'm using the CA firewall. Had huge problems kept failiing to log me in (Redirect...) never happend. Just wanted to announce that. now with FW turned off much better can actually make a post.

Kind Regards

Nonsense - I can access these forums perfectly through both my firewall at home and the firewall at work. It uses port 80, like any other website out there.

Edit: wft is a CA firewall anyways?

Uh.... I'm behind the basic Ubuntu firewall (just IPtables) and a NAT router, I've not modified either to load the website. Are you sure it wasn't something you limited? Did you have no script for instance in firefox? Maybe it was simply an overzealous firewall setting, but I don't think its recommended for most users to deactivate their firewalls... you may want to change firewalls. Some are simply not that good >.>.
