Forbidden?

  1. Hi there,

    Yesterday I was able to access WordPress just fine. As of today, I keep getting the following message:

    Forbidden
    You were denied access because:
    Access denied by access control list.

    In fact, in order to write this, I had to connect to my school's VPN, so I'm guessing the problem has something to do with my home IP address. Has anyone else experienced this? I can get to the site homepage (www.wordpress.com) but I cannot go to specific blogs, including my own, or comment on them.

    Any help or info would be appreciated!

  2. I should clarify that I'm hosted by WordPress.com and I'm getting this error trying to access other blogs that are also hosted by WordPress.

  3. That's not a WordPress.com error message. It sounds like something that might be produced by a firewall, corporate gateway or similar.
