Intermittent issue reaching a Chinese website.
Posted on 2016-08-21
Users are complaining an intermedittent issue of accessing a Chinese website.
When I do a tracert from a machine, it reaches the ATT network at the 4th hop. Then at the 14th hop, it comes back to our internal 10.10.200.x or 10.10.250.253 address (probably these are PAT of the inner firewall), and then it go back to the ATT network, then to the Asia Pacific Network Info Centre network and it stops at the 30 hops.
However, I am able to see the webpage from IE.
The website seems to be accessible but I just do not understand why when tracert does not reach the destination but I am able to see the website from IE.
Please advise if you understand the behavior.
