I'm running a macOS Mac M1 Monterey using Safari 15.6.1 & had little success reaching dprforum.com which persistently returned the error :
***********
"Can’t establish secure connection"
***********
The same was true with Firefox version 111.0.1 which provided a little more detail :
***********
"Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."
***********
I could from run ping the terminal with success :
# ping dprforum.com
PING dprforum.com (85.13.164.81): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 85.13.164.81: icmp_seq=0 ttl=53 time=32.485 ms
64 bytes from 85.13.164.81: icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=32.516 ms

64 bytes from 85.13.164.81: icmp_seq=3 ttl=53 time=33.497 ms
Also the same results with :
# ping 85.13.164.81

With some persistence I finally landed on the site.

I'm in Germany so maybe there's just too many connections in between with timeouts ??
Was going to do a traceroute when I managed to reach dprforum.com
Maybe its a morning problem.

I have a M1 macbook pro and have had no issues reaching this site using Opera - though could be an issue with your ISP despite the error msg?
 
That more than possible although I did try my normal ISP & also VPN with an alternate ISP but the same results.
It's not happened since but if is does I'll try see what I can find out.
 
I used to be able to delve deep into computer hardware but things move on and unless we kepe up to date we are soon left behind.

All I can say is that my morning computer in Australia is an iMac and that it has not issues getting on to the site.

But I did register earlier before i started posting and used the (silly) strong password suggested by my computer which it duly recorded.

When I came back to log on and do some posting 'damage' after the site name was fixed I could not get logged on and Dirk had to assist me - now with my own-created password it seems to be working fine.
 
No problems with registering or logging in here either. Also use iMac With Montery but Safari 16.4

Thanks for posting.
I've now upgraded Safari to the same version ... 16.4
So far no problems with either Safari or Firefox.

I followed up on the Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR
At this site there's some good information about possible causes :
https://www.hostinger.com/tutorials/pr_end_of_file_error
Although upon checking 'DNS was not enabled over HTTPS'

So no real conclusions on what caused the problems in the first place although
in retrospect I should have checked out the DNS cache at the time of failure.

Hi Tom, good to see you around.
I think each country has its own monitoring system regarding communications. Way back, some 30 years ago, I discovered here in Germany there were 6 communication nodes handling all traffic going in & out of the country. An importer was importing protected birds from abroad unaware that everything was monitored down to the last dotted 'i', crossed 't'. The protected bird arrived but it was the importer who was caged.

Meanwhile I have had no further problems.
