    having problems accessing the BBC website with my Mac Tiger
    I cant seem to access the BBC website with my Macbook running Tiger. Im living abroad but thats never been a problem before, my friends can access the sites from their computers from where I am in Germany, just I cant, could someone please help? Is it my firewall settings? I havent got a clue what to do!

    Thanks in advance!

    what message are you getting, is it showing an error screen, are ou trying to use iPlayer?

    I am in the UK, but work is a German company with German based DNS servers, and I can still get to the BBC sites
