I get a connection time out error every time I try to access

I am having this problem since I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). I don't get a connection from Firefox 5.0 or Opera (latest) and I tried two PCs (both have the same setup). When I switch to Win7 though it will load the site from within both browser. I remember that before upgrading it was fine.

Other exchange sites work ok, including, which has the same server software running as britcoin I think.

I am looking at this problem since the beginning of June and wonder if someone experienced the same.

The solution for some URL return timeout error is in firewall settings.

Just disable the following, in firewal preferences (menu Edit/Preferences/Advanced Options):

block broadcasts from external network
block broadcasts from internal network
block traffic from reserved addresses on public interfaces

Have fun,
João Moreira.
