weird problem accessing a site
 
IE won't load www.ar15.com but if I type ping www.ar15.com in a dos window I get a response
IE also won't load 66.202.29.77, the ip address ping reports for that site.
any ideas?

They just have some web server issues. The IP is live and responding, but their web serving is screwed right now. Kind of a hardware working, software not issue.

thanks
I have limited experience with webserver stuff so I wasn't sure about the possibilities
so basically the computer is running, and the OS is responding to ping requests, but the http software is off?

since the question is answered, feel free to lock

Yes. Actually, you don't know if the computer is running, you just know the IP to get there is. It could be the IP of their firewall, at least one would hope so. But their webserver isn't doing its job.

I clicked on the link, and it pulled up just fine (Netscape 6.2.)
