hi, all:
I'm very sorry to bother you guys, but it is inconvenient for us. I'm now accessing OESF through proxy.
Reference following information:
>ping www.oesf.org

Pinging www.oesf.org [] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.

>tracert www.oesf.org

Tracing route to www.oesf.org []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms ...
2 10 ms 10 ms 11 ms ...
3 8 ms 8 ms 8 ms ...
4 9 ms 9 ms 8 ms
5 9 ms 8 ms 9 ms bt-228-017.bta.net.cn []
6 9 ms 9 ms 9 ms
7 61 ms 60 ms 60 ms
8 reports: Destination host unreachable.

Trace complete.

It looks like that the router doesn't have an entry to the desination address. Don't know how to solve the problem.

I have originally reported that elsix.org cannot accessible in China, it seems that now OESF are using the same host as elsix.

I don't know if this will help, but I could not ping or tracert www.oesf.org for almost 2 days after the move.
Antikx recommended that I use a proxy, and that worked, but I didn't like using a proxy to access the forums.
I found a setting in Firefox that was causing my problem.
Here's a copy/paste from a post I made after I "fixed" my problem.
I finally got the OESF forums to open. It seems a setting in Firefox was affecting all 4 of my browsers.
Once I changed this setting, I could browse the forums on windows with Firefox & IE 7
On my Zaurus, connected thru TCP/IP over USB, both Opera and Netfront can now browse the forums.
Before I changed this setting in Firefox, none of my browsers could open OESF forums but I could surf all other websites
Here is a quote from a site about hosts file.
Why do I see the "unable to connect" message (Firefox only)

Wayne Haigh sends along this tip:
The solution is to set the following in about:config to false:
From the Address Bar (type) about:config (press Enter)

In an ongoing attempt to learn something new I am curious as to why "browser.xul.error_pages.enabled" in your case would be set to false as mine is true and I don't seem to have any difficulties. Do you think that it should be set to false in every case. Thanks
