A friend of mine (ex UK) lives in Oz, and is busy researching her family history, using "Ancestry.co.uk" as a source. For some unknown reason she is now directed to the Australian site, on which she has no credit. She does have an account with the uk one, and has been able to access it in the past. I suggested to her that she use the direct numeric address for the UK site, which I in the UK looked up and supplied to her. I thought this would stop the ISP's DNS from redirecting.
Sadly, this does not appear to work, as she still gets redirected to the Oz site. I thought that if one entered a direct numeric address, that was where one went ..... unless the ISP is applying some form of censoring or similar control. She is using Firefox - I persuaded her long ago that IE was bad news, but on XP. I apologize for that, in that this is a Linux forum, but..... everyone here is SO helpful!!!!
So.... what can she do next folks? Any ideas will be appreciated.
