[Connectivity] 3rd Hop Woes

Hey friends. I'm having trouble accessing »www.almahighlandfestival.com through my Comcast service. I was able to get to it from work and via proxy, but my home connection won't do it.

I've tried tracert, and I can't get past the third hop (te...elmhurst.il.chicago.comast.net). All other websites work. I tried DiG, and I got the same A record results from Comcast's primary DNS and from Google's primary DNS.

Anyone have suggestions? I called Comcast last night, they said there was an outage in my area (of course) and couldn't go further. Today, the "outage" is resolved, but they're still clueless. The web host (GoDaddy) reported no issues.

Thanks in advance!

Same here, but I can trace it from a friend's colo. Looks like Comcast is perhaps blocking it (potentially it or something on its net block was a source of spam/bots, just speculating).

There is a /32 host-specific route in the Comcast ibone routing table to drop this traffic at the edge (ie, as close to the CMTS as possible).

This traffic is definitely being purposely blackholed, most likely as part of a DoS attack mitigation by GoDaddy.

There's not really anything you can do but wait it out.

This is one of those cases where traffic to that IP is being intentionally sent to the bit bucket, and the levels of administration between yourself and the people who made that call are too numerous to transverse.

As others have said, not much you can do about it, until the powers that be fix things.
