Access Denied to bestbuy.ca
« on: November 29, 2022, 03:59:45 PM »
On Nov 28 and 29, 2022:

Using Avast SecureLine VPN 5.21.6744 on Win10 it is not
possible to access bestbuy.ca (https://www.bestbuy.ca/)
when the server selected is for Toronto, Canada. It always
gives an Access Denied error:

Access Denied
You don't have permission to access "http://www.bestbuy.ca/" on this server.

Reference #18.cd0fd017.1669676500.1e210d86

Selecting the servers from Montreal, Canada or Vancouver, Canada
allows connecting to that site.

@ waking,  whilst I don't use Avast SecureLine VPN

Using your first link I get a redirect and that works.  It would look like you are also getting a redirect, but to an insecure http server.

Now some browsers don't allow http (in your second link) as it isn't secure I also don't know if this is browser or Avast SecureLine VPN related.

Edit: added screenshot.
