Are you trying to access GreatAuPair from work or home?

If you are unable to access from work, this may be because your business has a secure internal network called a "firewall". A firewall keeps your company's network secure but it can also prevent you from accessing your GreatAuPair account from your office.

If you find you cannot establish a connection to your account, your company network probably does not allow for secure web sessions. Contact your company's network administrator for more information about getting set up for secure site access.
