Hi Guys,

Today I noticed that I cannot connect to my Web server in Germany anymore.

Can you guys please do me a favor and test if you can reach my Web server from the Slingshot BB connection / post your results here? I tested it from Telecom mobile broadband too, its perfectly fine!

Here we go:
traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets
 1 (  1.097 ms  0.765 ms  0.698 ms
 2 (  8.594 ms  8.868 ms  8.530 ms
 3 (  8.231 ms  8.472 ms  9.350 ms
 4 (  9.696 ms  9.068 ms  10.548 ms

Routing issue, log a fault with Slingshot's helpdesk. 

I wish you luck getting the foreign non-engineer CSR's to understand what you need them to do.. $5 says they'll probably tell you to reboot your router and a bunch of other non helpful things that are on their script.

Actually why waste your time, send a pm to Slingshot, send them a Twitter message and/or make a post on the actual/offical Slingshot forums (apparently their tech's/engineers tend to read their forums)

In the mean time use a proxy/vpn to work around the issue.
