The problem is I could not view any msdn.microsoft.com/* site and the main site itself on my Ubuntu box on Google Chrome browser. Error is:

Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset.

When I run traceout I get different result:

Here is simple one:

then I run this traceroute:

sudo traceroute -T msdn.microsoft.com
