Issue with DNSWatch and akamai servers: wrong IP resolved
Since yesterday 3 of february 2021 around 15:30 CET we had problems in opening web pages hosted on Akamai CDN.
This morning we looked deeper in the problem and we found out that DNSWatch was the culprit:
with DNSWatch active, our DNS server replied with this IP for www.dell.com:
which is inactive and does not reply to ping.
without DNSWatch, the IP given for www.dell.com is
which is up and pinging.
The same thing happened with a lot of other sites hosted in Akamai CDN, e.g:
none of those sites worked with DNSWatch activated. We were forced to deactivate this feature.
Anyone had the same problem?
Thanks in advance
