    Hi Guys,

    This is weird... From anywhere in the world people can access our webp
    age EXCEPT FROM SPAIN. Now Spain is where I'm
    living and me and other people in Spain cannot see the web page.

    The IP is and this gives a PING REPLY. Now if I PING then there is no answer.

    I could understand if this would be a local setting but it seems to be
    the same problem in the whole of Spain.

    What should I do? I'm lost and I just launched a video in Google that
    leads to our website but I have no chance of updating our site.

    traceroute: unknown host

    Maybe. That isn't easily determined. I can access it. Since it echoes
    ICMP it is easy to test it from tools which ping or tracert it from all
    over the world.
    Let us stay focused on just you and your system. We can't deal so
    easily with all of the other people in Spain.
    Perhaps not; but if I ping it echoes.

    I can also say that it will echo traceroute and tracert and that its
    rDNS is and that there are
    approximately 3750 other websites/domainnames sharing the same IP as
    I rather doubt it.
    It appears to me that your resolver is not resolving the name. If we
    look at dnsstuff we see that there is nothing wrong with the nameservice
    for, with prompt response from the nameservers,
    similarly for www. and there is no problem with the webserver responding

    Initiating server query ...
    Looking up IP address for domain:
    The IP address for the domain is:
    Connecting to the server on standard HTTP port: 80
    [Connected] Requesting the server's default page.
    The server returned the following response headers:
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Fri, 09 Mar 2007 23:18:29 GMT
    Server: Apache
    Connection: close
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    Content-Type: text/html
    Query complete.

    So, it would appear that your own nameservice is faulty. There are
    several ways to remedy this, depending upon your connectivity.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for jumping in..... What should I do to give you an idea what
    is happening? Other people here in the area (approx 100km radius) have
    tried from different locations, but they can't load the site.

    I can ping and traceroute the name from servers in Spain. If I use the
    tools at, I can choose servers from all over the world
    and those servers can resolve the name and ping and traceroute the
    target: Iber-X (AS12769) ping and traceroute
    facility - Query: traceroute - Addr:

    That tool pinged and tracerouted from iber-x to gorp, which iberx is rDNS which is Madrid Spain
    infrastructure Trazado de ruta desde
    Zilos - Veloxia Network - Trazado de ruta a
    desde Veloxia Network (Alicante, España) -

    That tool tracertouted from the Spanish veloxia network to gorp.
    It is not possible for me to troubleshoot some other people's systems in
    Spain other than you. We can only talk about what is wrong with your
    system. It appears to me that your resolvers are not working properly.

    Do you know how to find out what is performing your name resolution for
    you? On my system I use cable modem for my connectivity and I use a
    router for my connection to the cable, and I don't just use the DHCP
    resolvers which my cable modem's connectivity provides, because the
    provider is using a form of advertising for nameservice problems which I
    don't like, but instead I use the resolvers provided by opendns. Those
    resolvers also advertise, but they do a better job of resolving than my
    provider does.

    Hi Mike,

    I think I nearly lost track here. I have average IT knowledge but this
    goes very far.

    We use a wireless router in our home which assigns an IP through the
    DHCP facility in the router. But if you feel this would be the problem
    then we would need to change systems for every internet user in this
    area?.....Do you think it's an error in the providers setting?

    MIKE.... I don't know what happened BUT WE'RE BACK ONLINE.. we
    couldn't access the website for nearly a week.

    I really appreciate your help! You have to know that if the world
    would have more people like you it would be a lot better here.

    Thank you,

    Bummer. There are ways of troubleshooting that; determining the IP
    externally to your resolver. Using a website proxy to access the target
    YW You're welcome.

    I suspect that something was wrong with your provider's resolver/s. You
    are of where tde is telefonica de espana and rima is red IP
    multi aceso

    It is possible that the other friends you were asking were also
    accessing by and were also failing to resolve the name
    because of the resolvers being outawhack.
    de nada
