Google Earth blocked?

The Google Earth application appears to be blocked via Etisalat connections at the moment.

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Thanks to anon for tip

Maybe TRA got paranoid and considered it a security risk? you can see areas in Google Earth where photography is banned (palaces etc)

Replace your Tools, Connections, use automatic configuration script with:


And GE works fine.

Google and Etisalat have both been very slow to react to the problem.
