An over-conscious security attempt ...

I had a re-install of my desktop Ubuntu Linux sometime a week back. I had been re-installing the missing software and other pieces one-by-one. Today when I re-instated the configuration of OpenDNS, Google Talk stopped working. It was driving me crazy as I had re-installed Empathy the latest version too. I found out that Google Talk through Google Email was also suffering an outage, which gave me a hint that the problem might not be in the local computer but the network.
Once I checked the logs I found out that my OpenDNS configuration was blocking access to Google Talk server. See the web browser message below for
Google Talk
