I can not open a specific website. This is a website hosted by our company, and I know it is up. However, these are my symptoms:
VARIABLES: host.com - the website I can not open x.x.x.x - the IP of host.com 192.168.0.121 - the IP of my local machine 192.168.0.1 - the gateway IP that gives access to internet
- If I go to the browser and open
http://host.com, then it gives me an error (Unable to Connect in Firefox; Page not Available in Chrome)
- If I run
ping host.com, it returns:
PING host.com (x.x.x.x) 56(84) bytes of data. From 192.168.0.121 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable From 192.168.0.121 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable From 192.168.0.121 icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
Please note that
192.168.0.121 is the IP of my own machine.
- A traceroute will also fail miserably:
$ traceroute host.com traceroute to host.com (x.x.x.x), 30 hops max, 52 byte packets 1 192.168.0.121 (192.168.0.121) 3008.068 ms !H 3007.312 ms !H 3009.967 ms !H
And I have already checked the following:
- The website is available just fine from any other computer in our network
- If I try to ping or traceroute the IP directly, the results are the same
- This IP or website is not listed in my
- There is no firewall rule interfering. I even flushed all rules and tried again; same results.
What can it be?
Connectivity to this particular IP just came back. I can now connect to this website again. But this has happened before: I can connect, and then I cannot connect. It comes and goes, whereas for other computers in the network and for all other people in the public, this site is online all the time.
The problem is back. We just had an internet failure and have reset the router, and on all computers internet works just fine. On my computer, internet itself is also fine. It's just this particular domain name. I expect this to mysteriously work again in half an hour or so, but in the meantime I try to debug this issue. Here come some data as requested:
