    is ubuntu blocked on my isp? strange problem

    I am using a BSNL broadband connection from Chennai, India. For the past 24 hours I have not been able to directly access any of the ubuntu related sites( kubuntu, xubuntu, cannonical, ubuntuforums etc) using any browser or operating system. I am not able to update using synaptic or update manager as well as not able to access IRC through irc.ubuntu.com. I am however able to access all other sites like yahoo, google etc.
    I am making this post using hidemyass.com . why is this happening? is anyone else having this problem/

    Using BSNL in Chennai, India, in multiple places, at multiple times throughout the day.

    No problems.

    My current DNS (auto-discovered) is 218.248.255.145. Try the OpenDNS servers, if you suspect that BSNL is blocking your ubuntu-related sites. Or try browsing with the ip address (ubuntuforums.org=http://91.189.94.186 )

    If you are running firestarter, check the policy->outbound traffic policy->Deny connections to host to ensure that you have not (accidentally) blocked ubuntu.
