routing issues to ridewithgps.com

Post by romper » Thu Oct 10, 2013 8:57 am

Hi,

I cannot connect to the above website from my exetel service unless I use a service like TOR or proxy packets with sshuttle. Additionally isup.me shows the website as available and I can access it via a 3G connection and via an Internode service.

A traceroute shows the following:

I did a TCP traceroute and an ICMP traceroute and got there both times on hop 13 (the site's up in the browser too). Times were better. I'm from a different IP range than you though.

Code: Select all

The site administrators note that one of their co-hosted customers was hit by a DDOS over the last few days. I am continuing a conversation to see if any bad actors at Exetel might have caused a block of your addresses to be blacklisted and I would appreciate it if you could check connectivity to the site from an address in a range that includes mine, rather than from a totally separate range as appears to have been done.

BTW, I have also noticed that I am getting timeouts to twitter and am wondering if that might be related - basically loading their website in a browser and timeline pulls from my mobile client fail and have to be retried a couple of times before I get the data.
