Friend Can't Get To A Certain Site

My friend can't access the Dungeon and Fighter site http://arad.hangame.co.jp/

With IE he gets 'cannot be displayed' and with firefox it says it timed out.

We tried a lot of things and he can connect through a proxy, but when he logs in it redirects him to the main site (http://arad.hangame.co.jp/) and since he can't connect to it it says just that.

So, is there either a proxy that won't do that when he logs in? Or is there a way to fix this in general?

We tried changing the address up a bit, using the ip for the site as the address, adding it to the trusted site list, and using a different computer in the house. None of which worked.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

(My other friends and I can get to the site just fine though)

Have him disable his firewall and see again. Also have him go into the internet options of IE, go to advanced settings, and disable friendly errors. When he tries to connect to the site again have him copy and paste the error so we can see exactly what it says.

None worked. The error is just "Internet explorer cannot display the webpage".

He has some thing called EZ Firewall, which I believe controls his internet. I took a look at it and cannot figure it out. I don't know about internet programs, as I just plug mine in.

This is just boogling my brain =/ He can access yahoo.co.jp but not this? And his brothers comp on the same internet can't get to it either.

Do they have a hardware firewall that could be blocking it via a content filter?

I tried remote controlling him and looked around his comp a little bit, but my knowledge only goes so far. So I wouldn't know x.x

After an hour of looking through his comp my brain is fried. I couldn't read through that right now even though I want too x.x

Don't know.

Another item you can try is repairing the Winsock settings by utilizing the Winsock XP Fix Tool.

Hmm, very strange.

Maybe your ISP has blocked some ports which are needed to access that site.. but it seems unlikely.
