Web searches are redirected to OpenDNS. Cannot access these Web sites.

This problem just started. Whenever I try to load a page (in this case Gamefaqs), I get redirected to this search engine called openDNS, saying that the site is not available. It has a link to the site, and whenever I clicked, it redirects me to this thing OpenDNS.

I tried loading the page with the default browser of chrome on this phone, but also my laptop using firefox and chrome and have not experienced this problem. Yet the problem persists when you try to access the mobile site through firefox.

I have tried clearing the cache, uninstall and reinstalling, yet the problem isn't resolved. I have done a virus scan, thinking it might be some form of malware that is hijacking my search engine. That all comes back clean.

I've never heard of OpenDNS, nor have I allowed it to become my search engine. When I go into the settings of search engine, it does not appear, but he manages to keep hijacking of my searches on google and redirect me sites that work normally.

Please help me.

Hi SuperRup91, I was able to reproduce this problem on Firefox Mobile on a wi - fi network using OpenDNS. Queries for a single word for non-existent domains + by pressing the arrow go back a page of results of OpenDNS. Typing a search suggestion next to the icon of Google for the word, or by using a query of several given word of Google results. Unless you can change to a different DNS provider, I think you may be stuck with these options.

  • Cannot access https secure sites after installation of Netnanny

    Use Firefox for years. Then recently installed "net nanny" software and it has changed the security settings on Firefox.

    I can't access all the secure https sites regardless of whether net nanny software is even uninstalled.

    The following alert occurs on Firefox running...
    "Could not initialize component of application security. The most likely cause is problems with the files in the directory of the profile of your application. Please check that this directory has no restriction of read/write and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and correct the problem. If you continue to use this session, you may see incorrect application behavior when you access security features. »

    I also left a post on the forum of Net nanny however clearly don't have an adequate response when they talk about a setting in their software ("allow secure content") which is already activated anyway with the uninstalled software, however it still does not solve the problem. In fact, I had to use IE to post on this forum.

    It clearly provided a message when configuring the net nanny that he changed the security settings when Firefox has been executed for the first time for each user.

    I wish I had a solution so I can go back to using Firefox as my default browser and do believe a software application and a well known who, should take a non-functional browser but not another.

  • Problem the multifaceted - Security Center does not respond / in IE8 Google searches are redirected / cannot attach files to MSN emails (browser blocks) HELP!

    My problem is two (or three) times; Windows Security arrested Esentials closed and not would again be turned on; Windows Security Center is disabled and will not respond to all the methods of the market; IE 8 sends all Google search clicks to redirect pages and makes the back browser arrow almost impossible to use. E-mail MSN will not accept all attachments - blocks the browser window.  I uninstalled Security Essentials and reinstalled nothing doesn't.  Have gone to Spybot and Adaware and installed these programs and run them to "clean" the everything unwanteds but re-boots of a Security Center right back. No idea at all what to whether on programs related to the re - search on Google.  Uninstalled and installed the final license, two of them I had to Norton 360.  This program after hours of in-depth analysis has nothing found was not in the line of virus, worm, or whatnot.  Help! It's maddening.  Any suggestions?  Thank you.

    Hi ChazboK,

    1. are you able to send attachments to other webmail?
    2. What is the size of the attachment that you join?

    Note: you should never have more than one security program installed on the PC, providing active protection / scan. This can cause performance problems, system instability and may adversely affect the effectiveness of these two products to provide protection.

    Scenario 1:

    I suggest you to disable any program of security on your computer and check if the browser redirects.

    After reviewing the question you must reactivate the security on your computer program.

    Note: run the computer without antivirus software or firewall is a potential threat to the computer; Be sure to activate security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after identifying the problem.

    Step 2:

    Second, the problem may be caused by an add-on corrupted in Internet Explorer. To confirm the same, run Internet Explorer in safe modules mode, and check if the problem persists.

    Open Internet Explorer in mode without modules,

    a. click the Start button, click all programs.
    b. click on accessories.
    c. click System Tools.
    d. then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

    If disabling all add-ons solves the problem, you can use the add-on Manager to disable all add-ons and then turn on modules only as needed. This will allow you to figure out which add-on is causing the problem.

    Remove the damaged module and restart Internet Explorer normally and check if the problem reappears.

    After you have used this process to determine which add-on causes errors, you can disable this add-on. Or, you can uninstall the software that installs the add-on. We also recommend that you contact the software vendor that provided the add-on for additional troubleshooting and support.

    Step 3:

    If the method above does not resolve the problem, then I suggest you to perform an optimization of Internet Explorer on your computer and find the number.
    How to optimize Internet Explorer
    Warning: him reset Internet Explorer settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you have added to the list of Trusted Sites. Reset the Internet Explorer settings can also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the reset Internet Explorer settings

    If you are able to send attachments to other webmail then, I suggest you to contact MSN support.

  • AnyConnectVPN users cannot access remote vpn site-to-site


    We have two 5510 s ASA one in 8.4 (4) and the other to 8.2 (5) in a site to site VPN configuration. All internal traffic is working smoothly.

    A: site/subnet - local (8.4 (4)) Site/subnet b: - distance (8.2 (5)) VPN users: - assigned by ASA

    When you VPN into the network, all the hits of traffic A Site and everything on the subnet A is accessible.

    However, the site B is totally inaccessible to users of VPN. All computers on subnet B, the firewall itself, etc. is not reachable by ping or otherwise.

    There are also some NAT rules weird that I'm not happy with that were created after that I upgraded the Site to ASA to 8.4

    A resident of the site: external 192.160.x.x: 55.55.555.201(main)/202(mail)

    Site B (in addition to site to site) is external 192.260.x.x: 66.66.666.54 (all)

    I've pretty much just the basic rules of the NAT for VPN, Email, Internet and site to site.

    What I need to add for the VPN access to the network from site to site?

    Here is my config NAT:

    NAT (inside, outside) static source DOMAIN_LOCAL DOMAIN_LOCAL VPN_Network VPN_Network non-proxy-arp-search of route static destination

    NAT (inside, outside) static source DOMAIN_LOCAL DOMAIN_LOCAL DOMAIN_REMOTE DOMAIN_REMOTE non-proxy-arp-search of route static destination


    network of the DMZ_Network object

    dynamic NAT interface (DMZ, outside)

    network of the DOMAIN_LOCAL object

    NAT dynamic interface (indoor, outdoor)

    network of the EXCHANGE_Exchange object

    NAT static Outside_Mail (any, any)

    network of the DOMAINCTRL_DHCP object

    NAT (inside, outside) interface static tcp ftp ftp service

    Thank you very much in advance and I hope that I've been pretty thorough.

    Let me know if you need anything that anyone else. Thank you!!


    You don't need the NAT rules outside (depending on your configuration).

    Basically, you need to add the pool VPN L2L traffic and network remote to the ACL of split tunneling (if configured), also the "permit same-security-traffic intra-interface".

    Please let me know.

    Thank you.

  • One of the computers on the local network Windows XP cannot access a http site.

    I ping to the alpha-numeric address (on this computer) and ping uses a private IP address: (all packages are lost).

    All computers on the LAN access correctly.

    When I ping at the same alphanumeric address on other computers

    They ping and I successfully received all return packages.

    I connect using my Internet provider ADSL router. I know it does NAT and all my LAN computers get their IP addresses dynamically.

    I thought it was a problem of Internet Explorer, but after I discovered the computer resolves the ip address for the external address as a private IP address. I force the PC to get another IP address and also I had used: ipconfig/release, ipconfig / renew. And even by configuring it with a static ip address does not work.

  • Remote VPN users cannot access tunnel from site to site

    Cisco ASA5505.

    I have a tunnel of site-to-site set up from our office to our Amazon AWS VPC.  I'm not a network engineer and have spent way too much time just to get to this point.

    It works very well since within the office, but users remote VPN can not access the tunnel from site to site.  All other remote access looks very good.

    The current configuration is here: https://gist.github.com/pmac72/f483ea8c7c8c8c254626

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.  It is probably super simple for someone who knows what they're doing to see the question.

    Hi Paul.

    Looking at your configuration:

    Remote access:

    internal RA_GROUP group policy
    RA_GROUP group policy attributes
    value of server DNS
    Protocol-tunnel-VPN IPSec
    value of Split-tunnel-network-list Split_Tunnel_List

    permit same-security-traffic intra-interface
    type tunnel-group RA_GROUP remote access
    attributes global-tunnel-group RA_GROUP
    address RA_VPN_POOL pool
    Group Policy - by default-RA_GROUP
    IPSec-attributes tunnel-group RA_GROUP
    pre-shared key *.
    local pool RA_VPN_POOL - IP mask

    Site to site:


    card crypto outside_map 1 match address acl-amzn
    card crypto outside_map 1 set pfs
    peer set card crypto outside_map 1 AWS_TUNNEL_1_IP AWS_TUNNEL_2_IP
    card crypto outside_map 1 set of transformation transformation-amzn
    I recommend you to use a local IP address pool with a different IP address that deals with the inside interface uses, now you are missing NAT are removed from the IP local pool to the destination of the site to site:
    NAT_EXEMPT list of ip access allow
    NAT (outside) 0-list of access NAT_EXEMPT
    Now, there's a dynamically a NAT exempt allowing traffic to go out and are not translated.
    I would like to know how it works!
    Please don't forget to rate and score as correct the helpful post!
    Kind regards

  • Cannot access remote VPN site-to-site VPN

    Internal network:

    The remote VPN Clients: -

    Remote (L2L) network:

    Remote VPN Clients are able to access the internal network without problem, but are unable to access the remote Is it possible to debug this? "packet - trace" show no problem...

    Hi Ben,

    Please create a no. - nat on the external interface, because your customers to vpn-remote and remote-L2L tunnels are located on outside interface (i.e. from the outside).  You should treat your outside network identical to your inside network, as you would create a no. - nat for your inside networks.

    The ACL you create for the no - nat outside must be in both directions as below.

    permit access ip scope list outside_nat0

    outside_nat0 to access extended list ip allow

    NAT (outside) 0-list of access outside_nat0

    permit same-security-traffic intra-interface

    Pls let me know, if this is useful.

  • WRT300N no access to select web sites

    I have been using this router for months and 2 days ago suddenly can't access my websites - the paintings that I put in place. I can't receive my email either - just sites that are mine. I can access all other websites in the world but mine! I did a trace route and it has provided to my host, and they do not either. The connection dies right on their site - no problem at all until I got to this site. I can access the rest of their servers. I see other people had a similar problem with another router, but no one ever answered their calls for help. All my co-workers can access their networks site and receive their email, too!

    I have a computer wired - he can't access it either. All the other computers on the router are wireless and they cannot access the sites either... I have reset and reconfigured everything I can think of on this router. Anyone has any suggestions or help they can offer?

    I found myself by cloning the MAC address and it worked! I changed it to computer a different address, and all of a sudden, I could access the sites! So, thank you so much for you answer and work on this with me. I hope that everything will continue to work without fail as before.
