Connection timed out from Russia Only
In the last couple of month, I noticed that a few Russian users complained that my app isn’t working in Russia. This is very strange since all my other users can connect, I can connect, and Postman monitor doesn’t see any problems.
So to investigate this issue, I found a Russian version of Postman monitoring to do a serer check from Russia and surely enough - Connection timed out.
I went a step further and rented a virtual server in Russia and ran a few tests:
nslookup resolved the correct IP, however any GET / POST requests just times out:
curl: (7) Failed to connect to <domain> port 443: Connection timed out
Has anyone had something like this?
