    Does anybody have any suggestions as to why my iPad cannot connect to a particular website, even though the same site can be browsed normally on other (PC) computers on the same home network?

    The site appears in Google searches, but Safari refuses to connect to it (either from the Google link or via the address bar - always telling me that the site has moved. As it is one of several sites I manage, I know there is nothing wrong with the site. The iPad has no problems with other sites on the same server.

    the site has moved?

    That is a strange error. Which OS are you using on your iPad, and which site are you trying to connect to. Perhaps others can try to replicate the problem.

    Hm, curious. Can you post a link to one of them that doesn't work (no for-sale sites)

    Edit: Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    Maybe the site(s) in question have a "normal" version and a "mobile" version and when you try to connect with your iPad, you are automatically being directed to the mobile version which may or may not be where the link is pointing.

    Personally, that is why I use the Atomic browser which allows me to change the user agent thus allowing websites to think I am using another browser or another version of a browser that does not automatically direct me to mobile sites.

    :). Hi Bickbadger,

    I was confounded by this too.

    This is a common problem when viewing websites that are Flash-based.
    There is no resolution until both Adobe and Apple come to an agreement.

    You will find that similar errors when you wish to view movies on websites, you will be prompted with: "...download Latest Flash Version....."

    I hope this helps, you've probably sussed this out anyway by now!

    This initially confused me also and it is the lack of Flash.
