I have a customer who just converted from AT&T DSL to AT&T UVerse. One particular web site, which is critical to the customer's operation, is unreachable via UVerse. AT&T has said it is a routing problem at CenturyLink. CenturyLink says it is not their problem. The customer's network has 2 workstations plus a W2003 Server that need to be able to access this site. As far as I can tell, the site is accessible from anywhere other than this one area served by AT&T.
If I try to access the site through a WebProxy server, the access is fine -- presumably because it is routed differently.
As a temporary measure I am wondering whether there might be an option to route all traffic for this site on this network through a proxy server, and how one goes about doing something like this. We would prefer to route only traffic that is headed for this one site through a proxy.
My question is, "Is this a practical short-term solution and if so, what would I need to do to set it up?"
TIA for any suggestions.

AT&T and CenturyLink are probably right. You know, some sites have their own "blacklist" that registers all possible "Spammer IPs". If it's the case your customer IP was blacklisted and he/she was thrown out with no comment (impolite) or with a hint (Spammer).One particular web site, which is critical to the customer's operation, is unreachable via UVerse
