We just had an interesting situation here.
My company provides SaaS for hundreds of customers on North America
and Caribbean regions and we use non-standard ports and home-grown
Today, out of of the blue, we had at least 4 different clients from
HRM calling saying they were unable to connect. After a long
troubleshoot we found that:
1- All those clients are using EastLink cable Internet
2- Disabling encryption would allow the clients to connect (on the
same port they were unable to connect using encryption)
The problem persisted for about 1 hour or so and just went away by itself.
Is anyone aware if EastLink is doing deep package inspection now?
