ah but the TTL means that DNS lookup doesn't need to happen and the DNS cache on XP will take care of the connection.

ipconfig /displaydns
Interesting, never knew that was there! Maybe this was a feature that was added later by MS? At any rate the TTL for englishforum.ch is 1 hour, so it's not likely that the aussie sites were in the DNS cache, and others weren't.

At any rate we are getting a little off topic here - this is a conversation muze7 should really be having with cablecom, not us
