Lat few days I've been having some weird issues with google related sites through the TC transparent proxy.

Youtube videos sometimes refusing to work, google maps overlays not loading correctly. Problem isn't related to any particular PC or browser configuration.

Anyone else noticed anything amiss?

DSL.

It doesnt seem to be a constant issue either, and only seems to occur during peak hours.

It's kind of weird, hard to pin down, and bugging me.

Gah its doing it again for me.

Videos intermittently wont load on Youtube, maps wont load properly at all.
Maps seems to be timing out on these sites:
khm1.google.co.nz
khm0.goole.co.nz
maps.gstatic.com

I can ping them all, but HTTP requests (which presumably go via the proxy) just time out.

Any TC staff on here? Is there any way of opting out of the proxy?

Gah!

Thanks freitasm, I'd forgotten to update the forwarders on my local DNS server. Weird that it was only causing issues with cached google content thou.

Because TelstraClear has a local Google cache (for a few months now) which obviously the other DNS didn't know about, so by not using the ISP's own DNS you are causing yourself a disservice...

I'd just forgotten to update the forwarders for my local DNS server when I'd switched to TC last month.

Oh well lesson learnt I'll rememebr to check that in future :-)
