Connectivity Issue in US points to - amazon node in Virginia

Hey guys!

Ran the traceroute tool in the launcher - and found what appears to be my connectivity issue.

An amazon node in Virginia - please run the tool and see if your packets die at this same address as mine do.

My problem seems to be Amazon’s network , are you guys getting the same?


Yes, the traceroute tool reports the same thing for me. Intriguing.

Can someone describe whether they are timing out during the traceroute but eventually reaching the destination IP, or if the traceroute fails?

What is happening for me is I am timing out 7 times before finally completing the traceroute. That is always an Amazon server in Seattle, though, not Virginia.

I’m in Chicago, so I’m not entirely sure why my traceroute would go through Seattle on its way to London, which is where I believe TQ is located.

I am fallout out after the 10th ping or whatever it is, and it just continues with request timeouts

Mine predictably times out on the 11th through 17th request and then always, always completes on the 18th request. Strange.

I’m guessing your hops can get about the same time going either way. My traceroute packets just get fed into a dead end. Is your connectivity really spotty? I can’t even play… I can connect most of the time, but as soon as I want to connect to the server that runs grids for the system its gg hope my pod will survive floating out of the undock and into a bunch of trigs as the screen stops loading or goes black

Daedalus - if you do a search for ‘whois (ip address)’ for the last good hop, no parentheses - do you get an amazon node?

I’m guessing Amazon had to roll back their DNS to a ‘safe config’ and now if they are a single point of failure, we can’t really get a decent connection :frowning:

Here’s the first one to time out for me:

Here is a good article about why traceroute makes things that aren’t an issue look like an issue.

The long and the short of it is the “Request timed out” messages are likely not telling you what you think they are telling you. Most likely they are telling you that the host that is “timing out” in the chain is likely blocking ping/icmp (echo) requests.
