Requests from within GitHub Actions time out

I’m trying to reach the domain http://matthewalunbrown.com/ (107.180.3.135) from within GitHub Actions. For some reason all requests to this domain are simply timing out, whereas everything is working fine from multiple machines in different locations outside of CI.

Both ping and traceroute give no information other than timeout, so I’m kinda stuck debugging this. Does someone have an idea how to fix or at least debug this further?

:wave: Hey @pmeier,

I’m not sure why that specific domain would time out.

I’d recommend trying a self-hosted runner to make sure that works. Our GitHub-hosted runner are VMs within Azure, so it might be worth trying to reach that domain from your own Azure VM too -
