CURL library error: couldn't connect to host
 
I get this:

... and so on.

Hence me contacting this forum.

Info: I've been running Seventeen or Bust for a year or two now, and since Sepc 09 have been using the prime95 version of the app.

20th Feb (i.e. Saturday just gone) I updated my wireless router to a Belkin N+ using WPA2 security.

I am using Windows Vista and Prime95, v25.11 Build 2.

I suspect that it's a problem with my security settings but I haven't been able to work out exactly what from the readme files.

Can anybody help? If so, many thanks.

It seems you have blocked outgoing port 80 connections in your router. It is odd because it would prevent other web browsing too. Perhaps you have some sort of proxy configuration needed or something.

Bewildering ...
 
... because it seems to have cured itself - I just rebooted my machine (something I don't do very often and only did yesterday). And now it's fine. Very odd. Thx anyway.
