Blacklisted IP?


#1

It appears our IP address of 71.5.110.140 was blacklisted this morning.

Running curl -i -u : http://api.twitter.com/1/account/rate_limit_status.json -v
returns the following:

  • About to connect() to api.twitter.com port 80 (#0)
  • Trying 199.59.148.20… Connection timed out
  • Trying 199.59.149.232… Connection timed out
  • Trying 199.59.150.41… Connection timed out
  • couldn’t connect to host
  • Closing connection #0
    curl: (7) couldn’t connect to host

This is one of several IPs which were originally whitelisted back in 2009:

71.5.110.137
71.5.110.138
71.5.110.139
71.5.110.140
71.5.110.141
71.5.110.142

Any information you could provide would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Any updates? Questions? Comments?

Long and short is we’re dead in the water because of this, so if possible, we’d very much appreciate any information.

Thanks.

Well as of this morning, calls to the Twitter API via our IP are being accepted and processed successfully.

However, it would be helpful to know what happened in the first place. If it is something on our side, we would be more than happy to address and remedy the issue. But not knowing what happened makes this rather difficult!!

Thanks~~~~
