I have a networking issue that is driving me crazy. I have set up a virtual private server, and the DNS is all set up, nameservers and everything. The problem is, from my pc I get the ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error msg. It suggests a problem with my browsers, but all 7 of my browsers return the same error. It doesn't appear to be a server-side issue, because all of my other devices like my phone have no problem accessing the site. which takes me back to the client side. If it's not a browser issue and not a server issue, what could be blocking this one website or ip address to refuse to connect to my pc but all others, while at the same time my pc connects to all websites but mine. I can even access a subdomain i created, just not the top level domain. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I have flushed dns, ran ping and traceroute, and all seems well.

Based on the information you've provided, it seems like the issue could be related to your PC's network settings or firewall or you can provide a URL so we can check for you.

If all of your browsers are returning the same ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error, it's unlikely to be a browser-specific issue. Additionally, since you're able to access the website from other devices, it's unlikely to be a server-side issue as well.

Therefore, it's possible that there is something on your PC that is blocking the connection to the website. One possible culprit could be your firewall settings. Make sure that your firewall settings allow connections to the website's IP address and port.

Another possibility is that your antivirus software is blocking the connection. Try temporarily disabling your antivirus software and see if that resolves the issue.

It's also possible that your hosts file is redirecting the domain to a different IP address. Check your hosts file to make sure that there are no entries for the website's domain.

If none of these steps work, try accessing the website from a different network or using a VPN to access the website from a different IP address. This will help you determine if the issue is related to your PC or your network.

Hopefully, one of these steps will help you resolve the issue. Let me know if you have any further questions or if there's anything else I can assist you with.

Its seems to me that your DATE and TIME in your PC is not correct.

You need to check in the browser developer tools whether the IPs on the machine where the site works and where it does not work match. If they do not match, then flush the DNS cache. If they do match, then follow the guide:
- Check your firewall or antivirus software to see if it is blocking the website. Try disabling the software temporarily to see if it resolves the issue.
- Check your proxy settings to see if they are configured correctly. Make sure that you are not using a proxy server that is blocking the website.
- Check your hosts file to see if it is blocking the website.

As I understand it, you are experiencing issues connecting to your virtual private server from your PC. Despite having set up all the necessary DNS settings, when attempting to connect, you receive an ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error message in any of your browsers, which may indicate a problem on the server-side. However, as all your other devices can access the site without issue, it may point to a client-side problem. Since it does not appear to be a browser issue or a server issue, it is possible that something is blocking the connection to your PC specifically for that website or IP address, while all others are working correctly. You mentioned that you can access a subdomain you created, but not the top-level domain. In this case, you can try flushing DNS, running ping and traceroute, and checking your firewall settings to see if it is blocking the connection. Additionally, try clearing your browser cache and cookies, or using a different DNS server, to see if that resolves the issue.
