Permission denied errors from some web sites via Comcast

Permission denied errors from some web sites via Comcast

I'm getting permission denied errors when I try to access foxsports.com and some other websites via Comcast today but not when I access the same sites via my phone as a hotspot (with Wi-Fi turned off.)

 

I don't normally associate this error with a carrier, but i wonder if it's not an IPv6 issue.

Hello RichardBennett and welcome,

 

What address is the computer you are having website access issues using as its IP Address? If it is a DHCP LAN 10.1.10.XXX or Static IP WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ then it is not an IPV6 issue. are you trying to access wired or wireless?

 

I do not have any issues accessing foxsports.com from my wired or wireless systems.

The problem went away, foxsports.com got its act together.

 

My computer, like most IPv6 capable devices, has both an IPv4 address and and multiple IPv6 address for both the GigE port and the 802.11ac:

 

inet 10.1.10.128 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.1.10.255

inet6 2601:285:1:fa00::c445 prefixlen 64 dynamic
