Bank of America Online Problem?


C

Clark

Anyone using the Bank of America online service? I know someone who can't
get to his account information after the pin input page. I feel it is
something the page is trying to do but was wondering if anyone had
experienced this or know what it might be. He says the dial-up works fine,
but the DSL behind a router does not.

Thanks,
Clark

If he's running a router, is he running a firewall? At one point I had
a problem with my firewall "cancelling" the OneStep update, because the
firewall hadn't been configured to let that particular connection out.

Other than "not working" what's the particular/exact symptom?
Is the router new? Is the DSL new?
And, if he IS running a firewall, which? Is it new?
Did he just upgrade Q to a new year?

Not sure this is relevant, but I could not get past BOA Login when I first
tried. The page always failed to come up.
I complained via webform and got this reply to tweak the MS Explorer security
settings on XP. I did it and it worked. I use Comcast cable via a wireless
router.

Thanks folks, he says he was using McAfee firewall and it was blocking the
traffic. After he examined the log he came to the conclusion that he had to
enable ICMP traffic for the site to work, and it does. I must assume the
site is sending some type of traffic, perhaps for security verification.

Thanks for the replies,
Clark
