Tech-Nas, I trying to find out why you and some other users can't access my site, and can't download OpenIV. Can you please check something?

I want you to do this:
Start -> Command Prompt (cmd)
type the following line: tracert openiv.com
press enter
type the following line: tracert ntscorp.ru
press enter

Copy results of those commands here.

For now you can try to use proxy or vpn to install OpenIV.

My issue has to do with using AT&T DSL, one of their DNS stations is not allowing a path to the website.

I tried using different wifi DNS settings but still got blocked by the same AT&T DNS (
AT&T no longer allows custom DNS settings to their new routers configurations, scratching that idea.

Testing through Proxy via www.ixquick.com did work for reaching openiv.com

I installed a VPN software and this allowed me to access the site and use the installer successfully.

Conclusion? AT&T continues to prove they suck a bag of dicks.

any fix to this for the common man then Moxide?

I'm itching to play the Iron Man mod but not being able to get OpenIV installed is preventing that from happening.

Help world!

edit: willing to do the VPN stuff, just don't know how.

edit#2: Used VPN software and privately tunneled my way into openIV. I use AT&T as well, and that's obviously the culprit.

installer is running and going great. God bless you all!
