Are you blocked in China?

Hi Guys,
We have have just moved a site to hosting in mainland China. When I try and log into your system via your dashboard I get the following error.

"Your server had a problem connecting to WPMU DEV: "cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10001 milliseconds with 0 out of 0 bytes received". Please try again.

If this problem continues, please contact your host with this error message and ask:

"Is php on my server properly configured to be able to contact with a POST HTTP request via fsockopen or CURL?""

Is this likely to be an error related to China, or because I have not connected the site to the correct URL at the moment? There's a chance looking at that error, that the server isn't configured properly too I guess. Have you had any problems with sites in China before now?
