    Can't reach fios.asurion.com from Verizon FiOS, but other people on Verizon FiOS can

    I'm not sure if this is the proper group.

    I'm "Mark F", a Verizon FiOS user in ZIP 10502 (NY). I
    originally posted in alt.online-service.verizon, but it
    now seems more like a network issue.

    The problem is that I can't get to fios.asurion.com but many
    other people can. I think that the problem is at ATT, but I'm
    not sure.

    Note that I get to 12.123.129.81 and can't get further, while
    "Dave" gets to the same node and continue past and get reach
    the desired node.

    Some else thought that the problem was that 74.*.*.* wasn't known
    everywhere or that my IP itself (in 106.*.*.*) was
    not known.

    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I just did a tracert, and it went OK. This is what I got:

    Trace complete.

    This seems to agree with what Dave got.

    Have you tried a ping to fios.asurion.com? (I was able to.) That might
    give you something to go on. Somewhere, I had heard that there are
    different ways that tracert can be run. Some sites don't respond to
    ping commands, and there were some work-arounds for that.

    I don't know if the DNS servers get involved with every step in a
    tracert. The site your tracert times out at (step 14 in Dave's) doesn't
    have a URL associated with it. Have you tried using different DNS
    servers to see if that might be a problem?

    Obviously, whatever your DNS server is, it does resolve the
    fios.asurion.com OK.

    I don't see where your ip (in 106.*.*.*) should be a problem, unless the
    site at 12.87.103.106 has that blacklisted for some reason.

    To add to my own comments...

    Here are the DNS servers I use:
    8.8.8.8
    and
    4.2.2.4

    Both are, the last I checked, public DNS servers, and using them gets
    around some of the games an ISP may play with some of DNS lookups.

    Verizon has fixed the symptom of me not being able to reach a
    particular IP address, but I'm not sure that they fixed the actual
    problem.

    Verizon called me to say they thought the fixed the problem by
    "rebuilding" my account.

    Since I thought that "rebuilding" my account would not fix the
    underlying problem which might be due to a procedural error that
    might effect more than one user or more than one IP address and that
    new symptums would happen to other users, I asked the person
    who called to do a tracert.

    They refused to do a tracert from their system, even when I said that
    they didn't have to tell me the results if they thought that would be
    a security issue.

    When I told them that I was concerned that there were many problems
    that I could not know about because software beyond my control
    automatically went to a lower quality alternate site when it detected
    an unreachable node the Verizon person didn't understand how that
    would be a problem and said that they only would attempt to fix
    problems with reaching specific URL's.

    If someone with a Verizon FiOS account is willing, they might
    call and say they were having a problem reaching fios.asurion.com and
    ask if anyone else has reported the problem. Then please report back
    and tell us if they say someone else reported the problem (truth) or
    no one else has reported the problem (lie.)

    Thanks.

    By the way, none of the 5 or more Verizon people that I spoke to
    understood that the return paths used by tracert but not displayed
    might not match the forward paths that are displayed, and that a
    broken backward path for normal browser access (as contrasted with
    a broken backward path for tracert alone) could lead to the
    original symptom. (The possible PROBLEM, as contrasted with the
    symptom of not being able to read a URL or IP address, is that
    Verizon doesn't propagate changes correctly or another ISP is not
    properly integrating knowledge of Verizon's changes.)

    Well, to add to the confusion, I just did another tracert, and got
    different results from what I did earlier (still included above). This
    time:

    Trace complete.

    And, I don't understand the redundant IP addresses for the last four
    hits shown in all the successful traces.

    I suspect there are some errors in the DNS lookups, and possibly what
    DNS servers a user is looking at may influence what path is is taken.
