While attempting to do a traceroute from a server at ThePlanet to my colo racks at IDT the last hop is show as:
16 nycmny1wce2-winstar-pos.wcg.net (126.96.36.199) 37.985 ms !X * 37.671 ms !X
it is the same when i try it from traceroute.com
Does anyone know what the !X is? I know the * is a timeout.
- I came across this because all of our servers started to respond reallys low and I traced it to host names not resolving, and any server that tries to do a hostname conversion (tried from nslookup) on both windows and linux boxes can't connect to any of the root servers to pull data - however I can lookup host names that we host on the DNS server by using nslookup from my home... odd
