Blocked on Reliance Wiredline. What is this exactly about? From the description i can see its just doing a sync of ur bookmarks across browsers? Does it even have any media hosted there?

flagtel is owned by reliance right?



Trace will always reach the destination as it uses ICMP echo request not http. Flagtel (Rel. London) is also not responsible.
But as soon an http request reaches/queries 115.248.224.97 it's matched against Reliance's Netsweeper database. If it matches, it's blocked.
The http request concerned, doesn't reach any other IPs: Flagtel/etc and you get the default DoT page which is hosted on/at 155.248.224.97 under Netsweeper config.
Now, any fool working under Reliance with Netsweeper username + pass can block any website he/she wants and we're the ones who have to suffer.
They're showing us users how effective Netsweeper can be for blocking/filtering content... and now have a "Powered By Netsweeper" Logo on the DoT page.

First, speeds throttling by Airtel and Govt cannot do anything.Then, blocking of website by Govt (DOT) and nobody can do anything.Thankfully, this forum helped me open my mind (and my wallet :D) towards VPN and Seedboxes. I am always ready to deal with these kind of situations.Btw, do we still have rights to breathe or has our govt banned that too?

not MTNL, RELIANCE (115.248.224.97) aka Donkey Kong IP


A different route (void of Rel.) reaches just fine:
