About two weeks some EVE Online players are forced to watch the error message instead of the usual game login window
EVE Online game client, like many modern online games, works in such a way that before launching the main client program, the launcher mini-program is first launched.
On its main screen, the launcher contains the latest news, information about the status of servers, Shortcuts to useful resources and, in fact, the login form in the game.
Recently, some players (including me) have stopped working in normal mode, sometimes giving out a message as on KDPV, sometimes showing more informative messages
Fortunately for the players, the launcher contains a self-diagnostic tool that can help you find out the list of ip addresses needed for the launcher’s work.

The game community noticed that some of the addresses (for example, 188.8.131.52) are unavailable due to the entry in the registry of the ILV
The absurdity of the situation is that, as you can see, the addresses are mostly owned by the Amazon Content Delivery Network.

This leads to the idea that the lock is not connected with the game itself, but most likely the addresses just got under the distribution Due to incorrect configuration of traffic locks from the provider, because On the same CDN address can contain content from different, unrelated CDN clients.
Currently, players are forced to solve the problem on their own:
- Restart Client until the desired launcher domains are decoded into unlocked ip addresses
- register in the local hosts for the still working ip addresses
According to the players who have unsubscribed at the forum, the problem is not of a local nature, because Manifested in people of different providers.

There is such a problem for Transtelecom, through which many providers go. I copy here my message from another post:
Alas, in February-March this is exactly what happens at the TTK mainline
It is easy to google a bunch of disparate topics on “filter-gw.transtelecom.net” (or “blacklist-gw.transtelecom.net”).
The TTK on the main level blocks random IP addresses not listed in the registry , That other IPs are detected for blocked domains, and someone trolls / or CDN).
As a result, random sites are not opened. Of the last large ones that were noticed – Uniquiti sites, EVE Online service domains, Ingress – though they all sit on the CDN. Recently, the IP Github.com couple was blocked, with all the ensuing – the githab stupidly did not open for several hours, but it was not very mass …
It does not blob for everyone who walks through the TTK, apparently depends on the specifics of the provider’s interface with TTK. Make a trace to the address of interest. If there is a hop filter-gw.transtelecom.net, blacklist-gw.transtelecom.net, or bl-gw.transtelecom.net – this is it
