Not so much a bug, but it would seem that some corporate web filters are marking the server address as being "Tasteless or Obscene" The general renations.net site is fine, but once you try and access http://equinox.renations.net the site is blocked.

Strange.
Do you know how I can test this?

I think it depends on which software filter your business, school, or government is employing.
If it's blocking the game, and not the text-based website, then there's your answer. The detection capability of the filter-software must be updated regularly and detect most game signature/code/id's.
There are ways to bypass this of course, but you could get in trouble if caught.

Lets see if it also filters other servers once we open them.

If getting caught isn't a problem, you could always try Ultrasurf.
