Since a while, I see this message when trying to view a dropbox link shared by others. I get this on Chrome, on Firefox and on Safari, so this is not a browser specific issue. Here's one example link where I get this problem. Even clicking download doesn't do anything. This thread on the forum seems to be related to my issue, but the problem seems to always get solved in direct communication with the customer, and no solutions are posted on the forum. When I Google this error message, there are no results, and neither is there any explanation of this specific error message on the dropbox site.
Well, I'm not sure if you guys did something behind the scenes, but since posting to this forum, it works again. It hadn't worked for a while, and restarting computer or browser, nor switching to incognito or different browsers had made any difference. Anyway, I'm glad it works again.
Unfortunately, the issue came back as before. The message comes up on any browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari), also in incognito in Chrome. Any ideas as to what may be causing this specific error message that I can't find any information about on the internet?
So indeed, as I try to access the dropbox link through VPN, or on another network, there is no problem. So it is something specific to my network (the provider, the router, ...). If you have any ideas where to look first, I'd be happy to hear that.
