Redirect troubles and other issues solved
« on: October 23, 2004, 03:51:19 AM »
Due to some stupid coding actions programmed on the hosting provider of our forum, MSIE decides to gratefully mess up the way pages are displayed in IE. To prevent this from happening again, please locate your HOSTS file (Windows Machines) and add the line below:

127.0.0.1 ads.tripod.lycos.nl

This line redirects spyware/tracker-cookies to /dev/null
Or, and this is fully your own choice, install Mozilla Suite or Mozilla FireFox. Other great browsers are Opera and Netscape.

As soon as I have migrated the forum to a new add-free place I'll let you know asap. In the meantime, with this small addon for your HOSTS file (Windows) you can reach the forums again.
If you are on *nix I guess it's somehow on the same file, but I'm not sure.

If you have a linux router such as Freesco it's quite easy. Locate the file dns.cfg and add this line. restart the dns service and away you go  :)


If you can help others or have more suggestions on this, feel free to post a reply and help others. I don't know how to fix this for other Operating Systems but I guess those who use *nix will know how to add the line above in their configs.
