Thanks for solving it Karl! I had forgetten to cc the list one of my email
replies to Denis. From that, he had indicated that he could reach the
tug webiste via a anonymous web proxy (like the TOR idea from Rick Graham
which worked), but knowing that doesn't help us much to understanding why
he was blocked. Still, it is great to have these workarounds if needed in
a pinch.

A good clue was when Denis said that both his laptop and smartphone were
blocked. So, knowing that, it was then very unlikely to be a network/OS
configuration issue on (both) those very different devices - it then
had to be one of the routers on the chain to tug.org, or the server

Denis, I would still ask your ISP (and/or do a net search for reset IP
for your router model) to find out if there is anyway for you to be able
to change/reset the IP number your router is using. Because one day this
kind of problem might happen again with another site and there likely
won't be such a helpful "Karl" at the server end to open the blocked
IP for you.
