Hello,
Which VPN are using and why do you need to use one at all?

I use a VPN to connect to some sites but I can still connect to the IMDb when the VPN is active.

Well, if your VPN's outbound IP address is blocked by neither IMDb's servers nor IMDb's ISP, then the connection problem probably has nothing to do with IMDb.

Hi, Kerrington. Is there a specific error message that your web browser presents when you try to access IMDb through your VPN? Are you able to access any website? Please explain in detail what is wrong, providing screenshots if necessary.

This occurs  only on the imdb.com website. It happens using Firefox, IE, Google Chrome and Opera. I,ve attached three different screen shots. I can reach all other websites with no problem.

We've narrowed it down to a domain name resolution problem at least.

I don't know whether you can answer this or not but, could this be an issue with my ISP? Thanks for your past assistance.

Hi, Kerrington. It could be the ISP of your VPN, yes. I doubt it could be your point-of-presence ISP.
