BlogSpot Network Problems?

I’m a network troubleshooter, and got into Blogging only recently, when I needed to setup a website quickly. So when I hear Bloggers describe problems that may well be network related, not related to the silence at Blogger, my ears perk up.

So today I see mention of possible DNS or MTU problems accessing blogspot.com.

And here’s an ongoing problem. When you’re in Post Edit, you see (on and off, constantly)

Could not connect to Blogger.com. Saving and publishing may fail.

DNS / MTU problems can have varied symptoms.
You try to browse to http://www.example.gov, and you get a cryptic

  • Firefox can’t find the server at http://www.example.gov.
  • We can’t find “www.example.gov”.
  • The classical

    404 Not Found

Now the above 3 examples could have been caused by any of several scenarios.

I’ll generally refer you to any of 3 articles of mine.

Given the possibility that the problem might be with Blogspot, maybe WordPress is a good alternative here.
