    I had the same problem. Chris told me this: "Issue is the DNS on your end. It is up to your ISP to update everything now. It has to happen sometime."

    And it did, works fine now.

    It's been long enough that it's not a DNS propagation problem at this point. I'd guess either you edited your hosts file or your ISP is doing something with DNS caching they shouldn't. If it's your ISP have fun trying to get them to do anything.

    Your computer might have the old IP address for CF cached.

    If you are using Windows, open a Command Prompt and type:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    and hit Enter.

    Find a new home that is CF compatible?

    Re: I cant access CF at home...

    The tips that have already been given here are good ones. There is literally nothing that we can do on this end. We've done everything that we can. It is all up to your ISP and DNS situation. I apologize for this being a pain but the server switch was something that we really needed to do.

    Re: I cant access CF at home...

    Another issue while this is on the board- on my Blackberry, the left side banners show up right in the middle of the pages, and when I go to post, it keeps asking for a title, even if there is one. Should I be running the site in a certain mode? Thanks

    Have your wife uninstall the baracuda filter she put on your computer.

    I cant access CF at school because our webserver says there is spyware associated with CF?
