About 15 minutes ago, all of my connections to AWS sites suddenly dropped and I've not been able to reconnect again since. If I swap to a VPN, it resolves just fine, however this isn't a long term solution due to work issues. I can't even get to the AWS status page. Tethering my phone works as well, but again not ideal due to the amount of data.


Is there a routing issue with 2degrees currently?

Currently connected to a bunch of AWS stuff in Sydney just fine. Some over a VPN. Some not.


Am with 2degrees. I'm in the Hibiscus Coast. And on fibre (in case they have different routing for other products)

To AWS Sydney console or resources hosted in AWS? Might be a problem routing to a specific IP block. All my AWS Sydney resources are private / not on the internet so not a useful check.

It ended up resolving itself after about 30 minutes. It seemed to have just been a strange routing issue. I couldn't even load the AWS Status page. Strange, but now resolved.
