Cannot visit http://www.centrelink.gov.au/ on Linux


I am unable to visit "http://www.centrelink.gov.au/" on my Kubuntu machine. Is there other Linux people that can or cannot visit this website. When I try to visit with Windows things are fine. Any ideas? I tried Firefox and konqueror.

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

After a couple of "Try Again" clicks, it loaded fine for me (FF 3.5.x on Slackware). Usually that error indicates a problem on their end, not yours.. Strange..

Nslookup that FQND.

Nslookup http://www.centrelink.gov.au and see if it gets returned. Then try that IP in your browser. (don't want to get into host headers just yet)

Could use netcat or telnet to that IP or address to see if other issues.
