Xt geoip: email from Maxmind
« on: March 18, 2024, 05:25:00 PM »
Hello,
I received this email from Maxmind last week. From what I can see I don't need to do anything, but would be grateful if someone could confirm this. Thanks.

As of Wednesday, May 1, 2024, all MaxMind database downloads will redirect to R2 presigned URLs. We are making this change in order to increase the security and reliability of our services.

 

This is a potentially breaking change. Please ensure your downloading HTTP client is configured to follow redirects and can connect to the following hostname:

 

 mm-prod-geoip-databases.a2649acb697e2c09b632799562c076f2.r2.cloudflarestorage.com

 

We recommend confirming the above as early as possible.
Jim

yes we all received that, this is technical enough to be worrisome and  not enough to be helpful in anything.

All you can do is see if you are able to resolve it using your sme.

dig databases.a2649acb697e2c09b632799562c076f2.r2.cloudflarestorage.com

and if not try to debug that.

people using pihole or similar things in front of their sme mighy get this blocked. Hence the setting suggested on our wiki for those using pihole putting it after the SME using SME dns server as a primary resolver
