Seems bt.com is down again :(


[link to this post]
 
I can connect to home.bt.com fine, but as soon as it redirects me to bt.com/... via the link on the site it times our and is unable to connect.

Here is a trace route to home.bt.com:
tracert home.bt.com

Tracing route to btgroup-5.hs.llnwd.net [178.79.206.253]

And as you can see its fine, now here is the trace route for bt.com:

Trace complete.
Now as you can see it has reached the ip for bt.com, but it seems it doesn't want to stop routing.

So my guesses is its a routing issue.

Anyone else having this issue?

At what point does it do the redirect to bt.com? I enter www.bt.com and that redirects to home.bt.com and three or four links on that all just change what is in front of "bt".

Works fine for me with almost exactly the same tracert. I don't see any redirect to bt.com though, only home.bt.com.

Well its back up for me now.

I was referring to when you go to home.bt.com its all fine, but when I tried to login to check up on our FTTP order it re-directs to https://bt.com/..... etc, sadly I was unable to reach that page at that location and it timed out.

Also clicking on the ?Help link takes you to bt.com, that was failing for me, but is now back up.

Also when I try to tracert to bt.com it just went completely past the ip for bt.com where it should of stopped.

What do you get when you tracert to bt.com ?

I get the same as you - the tracert reaches bt.com and then continues past it until it stops after 30 hops.

Shouldn't it normally stop when it reaches the required IP ?
I also tried it on my Development Box running Linux and it does the same when I tell it to do the traceroute using UDP, however, when I tell it to use ICMP it stops in the correct place.

bt.com is the only site that this happens on for me.

Strange.

Could it depend on their firewall config?

Do they block/drop such packets?



BT ADSL customer getting 3.8 Mbps (0.7 Mbps up) on a new road / new build development
(It was around 1.6 to 1.9 Mbps when I moved in)
CAB not FTTC enabled, not part of the 66% commercial plan. Not a BDUK area. Hoping the council will let VM in-fill.

Well Traceroutes using ICMP works fine, but UDP ones just continues after it reaches the required IP and doesn't end.

Here is the tracerout tests I did on my Linux box:

I cancelled the second test due to it goes on and on.

But yeah, they could.
