Hello, 

I am seeing a really weird routing issue. I have customers who are having trouble connecting to hosts on the internet. The common item seems to be Savvis. 

orange:~>traceroute mail.tecumsehherald.com 
traceroute to mail.tecumsehherald.com (64.14.74.42) 
1 204.16.245.97 (204.16.245.97) 0.580 ms 0.800 ms 1.020 ms 
2 204.16.241.225 (204.16.241.225) 0.496 ms 0.478 ms 0.699 ms 
3 64.209.102.233 (64.209.102.233) 7.177 ms 7.420 ms 7.417 ms 
4 te1-3-10g.ar2.DCA3.gblx.net (67.17.108.145) 7.630 ms 7.870 ms 8.105 ms 
5 * * * 
6 * * * 

Hop 5 is a Savvis router. 

Now if i go to Global Crossings looking glass and run a trace from their DC router to the same host, it makes it.

9 64.14.67.130 (64.14.67.130) 11.570 ms 11.592 ms 
10 ns2.s426.sureserver.com (64.14.74.42) 11.811 ms 11.927 ms 

Now to top it all of, if i run a trace to the 64.14.74.41, instead of 64.14.74.42 it works... 

agg1.pit#traceroute 64.14.74.41 
Type Control-c to abort 
Tracing the route to IP node 64.14.74.41 from 1 to 30 hops

11 20 ms 20 ms 20 ms s426.sureserver.com [64.14.74.41] 

Does anyone have and ideas? 

Thanks,
