I am trying to use O2's free web based text messaging service. When I log into the O2 site at http://www.o2.co.uk/home and select to send a free text message it redirects to http://sendtxt.o2.co.uk/sendtxt/
and returns an error message.
I have tried both Firefox and IE browsers and get the following error messages:
Firefox error message
Failed to Connect
The connection was refused when attempting to contact sendtxt.o2.co.uk.
Internet Explorer Message
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
i have tried adding http://*.o2.co.uk to the trusted sites in IE but still does not load the page.
Can anyone advise us please

Try logging in first then clicking my O2, send web text.
The site I get taken to is http://sendtxt.o2.co.uk/sendtxt/ and it is functional.
You can find me on Twitter @browni (pretty obvious ain't it!)

given your reply i tried adding the full url - but still does not work for me - having scoured several forums i think it may be to do with my firewall settings but not sure how to fix. I use BT Netprotect (McAfee)

This will confirm if it's the firewall settings or not.
