Waiting for www.nohrsc.nws.gov...


I have a small network with a couple computers on it. I'm having trouble with one computer connecting to one website. It's a Dell laptop running Fedora 8.

When I try to go to http://www.nohrsc.nws.gov/interactiv...pe=0&js=1&uc=0 , it displays "Waiting for www.nohrsc.nws.gov..." in the status bar. It never displays the page. It happens in Firefox and Konqueror. It happens when connected to the internet through a wire or wireless. It happens when I try to wget the image the page provides. It happens when I use urllib in Python. It even happens when I run Xubuntu in Virtual Box.

Now, if I connect across the network to the Windows 2000 computer, it will connect to the server and download the data without even blinking.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Does it work if you change your user agent headers to look like Internet Explorer on Windows XP?

Nope.

[EDIT]

Hmmm... I got an error just replying "Nope."

Well, FWIW, I can't even get to the root directory of that address: http://www.nohrsc.nws.gov/ - I get pretty much the same "Waiting..." behavior. Could it be some misconfiguration on the server? Governments aren't exactly known for being super competent in these matters.

I guess it could be. I can get to it from my Linux router at work, though.

I run a Python script to collect the noon image of snow depth, process the colors and add a label with ImageMagick. I use it in our GIS.
