Outage 23 Feb @ 13:45

It looks like routing outside of Exetel (at least for me, in Sydney) is broken as of about 13:45 on 23 Feb 2012.

Can't access anything except for Extel servers.

Anyone else seeing this? Any status updates on this?

Yeah - broken here too. Can get Exetel, Internode's site, SMH and Google is on and off...

Just also had a call from another business to ask about it - we believe they are on Telstra Direct, although they MAY have moved to Exetel (not 100% sure - we discussed the idea with them about 18 months ago). Getting similar things there.


Edit: I'm in Narrabri, northwest NSW.
Edit2: Worst part - can't get to Whingepool! How am I supposed to whinge! :mrgreen:

Came back for a couple of minutes, then died again.

I saw a big pond user drop off irc a minute or two before me. Looking at Exetel traffic graphs, it looks like the outage is on multiple links. Both NSW Optus and NSW Verizon show a sharp drop off. Perhaps the internets are clogged? :roll:

I regained partial connectivity using Google's public DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 btw) but those are now inaccessible too.

Newcastle, NSW.

Yeah, same here at Gosford. Facebook is completely out along with SMH. ABC and Google think about it...

Being without Google doesn't bother me nearly as much as not having ssh access to work git server, the night before a major software release. :shock:

iiNet have the same issue and flagged it as "Issue is believed to be related to a upstream routing issue."

Can't get from Exetel to Telstra, so I would not be surprised if this was a Telstra problem.
