Tablo People Please Read

I have been trying for the past few minutes to connect to this website. I was able to reach other websites fine. So, this got me thinking.

Is there at anytime a critical need for Tablo to reach out to specific IP addresses for it to fulfill it database function, especially any that need near real time response? If so, what happens when for whatever reason it cannot reach its need destination?

Might something like this be responsible for a variety of ills our tablo is experiencing?

Just thought I’d ask and let you folks give it some thought.
