Just wondering - are you able to access blogspot blogs with your MTNL connection? I'm not able to, from home; nor is a friend from his office. I'm in Delhi, and funnily enough, a friend using the MTNL landline connection in Bombay isn't able to either.

Am able to access to post, though.

I'm getting a Request Timed Out when I ping any url. Sent a screen cap to the Delhi Helpdesk, and I'm told:

Dear Sir,

All the below mentioned site are accessible from MTNL, ISPs network.
Pl. check again at your end.

Not working for me too. Must be some server maintenance on blogspot's side.
no announcement at . And people with Sify and Airtel are able to access it. I've mailed helpdesk again...maybe they'll wake up if more people mail them. Please!
looks like DNS probsUse, Treewalk DNS (Freeware) or Simple DNS plus (shareware)If u r going 2 use treewalk u better search the forum, there was something posted for it before.
using powersurfer. blogspot isnt accessible. domain name resolution is ok. but it just doesnt connect. have they changed their ip? Prolly its a DNS propogation issue. The IP of blogspot that i am getting is What do u guys get? Remember to query and not
