This is very strange. I'm not having problems accessing any of Google's other properties or any other Web sites, but I get a "cannot find server" error whenever I try to access my AdSense account.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Not today, but I've noticed a lot of problems over the last few days. I've gotten everything from "Internal Server Error" to a general "Try again later" error to "Connection refused" or "connection timed out." This seems to be happening with Adsense and, at times, with Adwords as well.

Maybe Google didn't anticipate such a big response to Adsense, and doesn't quite have the capacity to keep up? Hopefully, they're working on adding more power to the system.

It's pretty surprising, really. I've always considered Google to be extremely stable, but the last few weeks I've had to reevaluate that stance a bit.

I am accessing from UK, and have not had any problems at all today, all up and running smoothly ;)

Ah ha! I figured out what had happened (though it took me a while!)

Apparently, something I installed changed the advanced config of IE 6.0, unchecking the box under Security: "Use TLS 1.0"

When I rechecked this, I could access the AdSense page.

And no, it wasn't a fluke. I tried unchecking it again, and voila, I was no longer able to access Adsense.

Weird. I don't even know what TLS 1.0 is, but I guess it's important :D

TLS stands for "Transport Layer Security". TLS 1.0 is essentially SSL 3.1.

Ah, thanks for that info! Strange that that'd be disabled. Oh well. Just glad to have access to AdSense again :)
