    Anyone seeing slow load times on .ie sites the past few days? I am seeing it behind our corporate firewall. Asked a former colleague to check and his new company is affected too. We use a fortigate, he is on a checkpoint.
    The sites are fine on home internet connection or mobile internet.

    If I try debugging on chrome, it shows errors accessing All the sites seem to have that in common, they all give timeout errors accessing

    Example sites affected:

    Fortigate DNS servers always have a high response time.
    And depending on the security services on the unit, all traffic could be routed over these servers, hence the delay.
