google applications versus localization

L1 Bithead

Hey guys,

I have a theoretical question regarding a issue i had today.

A user called and said that google-translate was blocked. I couldn't understand that, since i knew that we've allowed that.

I went to http://translate.google.com and sure enough, "Application Blocked".

I went to the monitor tab on the firewall web interface and set a filter for google-translate applications. I was surprised to see that allow/deny actions were 50/50. Some users got a allow, others a deny.

Eventually, by accident, i opened a new browser window and navigated to http://translate.google.dk

We're based in Denmark, so thats the TLD for us.

And woop woop, no problems there.

So I've told my users to use the .dk extension instead..

But what is happening? Why is google's localization system interfering with my application rules ??
