I tried the links in the first forum but received an error message.

These links seem to work.

Look again, you're using the wrong links:

http://www.os2world.com/

http://www.os2world.com/ultraboard/

You have to access above links via port 8080 to get to the correct server.

I keep getting a 'failed to connect' with the above links. This is why I posted the other two links without the :8080 part. I tried them again with the same results. I am at work with a Winpc.

"The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.os2world.com:8080."

Okey, then it's a firewall issue, meaning that your corporate firewall won't allow any traffic on port 8080. Nothing much that can be done except that you need to ask the firewall administrator to open up port 8080 (doubt that he or she will do that).

But, anyway port 8080 will only be used until we launch and replace the old site and server.

I would probably have a greater chance winning the mega bucks lottery than having the network administrator allow that port.

Yep, it's your firewall. I connected to the new site just fine...and I'm at work. <G>

Later,
Sean

P.S. I created a new account on the new site. Looks good.
