LDSTech blocked by firewall

I've been able to access it before, but tonight our 881 firewall blocked tech.lds.org. Anyone else have this problem?

I was able to get to tech.lds.org at 9:10 am from my ward and everything worked fine. I got the front page and have been able to read the forums

Turns out the network port I was using was connected straight to the Comcast modem/router, bypassing the firewall (the facilities contractor did this to improve webcasting performance). The blocking message was not from the Church but rather OpenDNS. Connecting it to the firewall seemed to fix the issue. But my phone was blocked as well, and it was connected to an access point (not the 881 or 1041) that was connected to the firewall. It worked fine when connected to the 881 wireless. I'll do some more research.
