My grandfather put different users on my computer so my mom me and him have are own sections on my computer. on my moms and my grandfathers if you open a page like Netflix login it will open just fine with the usual address https//: and then the Netflix URL but on my section it will start to load then a message will pop up saying that safari can't connect to the server. What is going wrong when it loads and is there anything I can do. If it makes a difference my section has parental controls.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    It makes a difference. Parental controls allow for robust control over a user's account. Websites can be specifically restricted or permitted, the amount of time you spend using the Mac can be limited... it's up to them.

     

    Ask your grandfather to allow you to access Netflix.

     

    If he says no, ask your Mom.

    Hi Walliday,

     

    I recall now this was a known bug with managed accounts - secure websites cannot be used even if they were specifically permitted under Parental Controls.

     

    The problem may have been fixed with Mountain Lion but I have not yet personally confirmed this. Read this thread for more information:
