The “No Internet in Iran” Story is Bullcrap
The “No Internet in Iran” Story is Bullcrap,

but that Didn’t Stop 17 People from Submitting
it to cryptogon.com



February 4, 2008



I don’t expect people to know much about computers, but the story about Iran having no Internet access is complete nonsense.

It scares the living crap out of me that so many Cryptogon readers are propagating this nonsense without even trying to verify whether or not the story is true. (In fairness, one Cryptogon reader who submitted it later wrote that, by the same measure, Florida had no Internet services. HAHA)

The page that all of you are submitting monitors one router, which happens to be down, at the Iran University of Science and Technology. Somehow, through the magic bullshit amplification powers of the Intertubes, the fact that one router is down at an Iranian university has snowballed into "Iran is off the air."

Oh really?

Why not check out the Iran University of Science and Technology’s homepage?

And I said, "What is this, the burning bush? For God's sake, I'm not Moses."

And the Voice said to me: "And I'm not God. What has that got to do with it?"

Re: The “No Internet in Iran” Story is Bullcrap
OP,
Here's another link to back up your story:

[link to www.renesys.com]

<snip>
So back to Iran. In the following graph, we plotted the availability of Iranian networks for four entire days, 30 January 00:00 UTC until 3 February 00:00 UTC. The first day is the day of the cable cuts. Of the 695 networks that geo-locate to Iran, at no time were more than 199 unavailable, as observed by large number of Renesys peers. A few peers here and there might not have been able to reach Iran for local reasons, but the vast majority of the world could get to most of the networks in Iran for this entire time period. Note also that around 64 networks were unavailable before the event even started. These networks could be simply unused at this time. In other words, at most 135 networks that were active before the cable cuts disappeared for at least a short while during the outages.

it's NOT strange.
it's called a firewall, icmp packets are not important...they rather represent a security hole.

the iranian firewall simply blocks the icmp protocol.

yesterday i had a similair lamer aka n00b comment...that guy thought he's the big woowoo because he knows how whois worxs.

but he obviously knew nada.

Re: The “No Internet in Iran” Story is Bullcrap
maybe, for a short time, they were indeed off the inet.
but one can compensate this very fast by using sats.

maybe their cables are really not working, maybe they do but maybe they now got sat connections.

who knows...i only know that we the normal people always only can speculate, we never get the full truth.
