I can see it from the UK (using Cloudflare's DNS, IPv4).

I used it in this thread:
http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=11949

with this invocation:

Code:
The command wpa_passphrase(8) takes your SSID
When double checking I get the server not found.

My router (192.168.1.1) is setup for Cloudflare (1.1.1.1) and Google DNS (8.8.4.4) servers, computers on my network reference my router for DNS. I'll test by adding additional nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf and edit back.

Code:
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf 
lookup          file            bind
nameserver      192.168.1.1
nameserver      1.1.1.1
nameserver      8.8.4.4
Still does not find netbsd.gw.com. This is the only site that I have come across on my system that does not open.

There's no such domain, which is why your link fails.
Code:
$ dig netbsd.gw.com

When I select the wpa_passphrase(8) link in my post, a new tab opens with the following message which I copy/pasted:

It is not my site: it is generated by the BB code in Daemonforums.org. Potentially could it be a re-direct, and if so, why just me?

When I click the link with netbsd.gw.com in it, it fails (as it should, as noted by jggimi).

When people noted a working link, I think it was the one in the first post containing man.netbsd.org.

So I think that clarifies the responses. But the question is why the bad link arises from the BB code?

Yes, my question. I have no firewall and tested w/ Iridium, Firefox-esr and vimb (webkitgtk4) browsers in OpenBSD 7.0. Also tested w/ vimb and Firefox-esr in Crux Linux. I have not set up a firewall and have explicitly set no-proxy for both Firefox and Iridium.

So here is an independent test with the BB code in the thread title used to make a link:

wpa_passphrase(8)

... and the link contains netbsd.gw.com . (Done with Seamonkey on Slackware.) I think the problem is with the forum's BB code programming.

While we're on the subject of BB code I have noticed that the automated man page links for OpenBSD direct to 6.8 when -current would (perhaps) make more sense.

I fixed the NetBSD and OpenBSD man page links:
