Accessing google from linode gives different HTTP return code

Avatar tonyjacobk 3 months, 2 weeks ago

When I use curl to access from linode it gives 302 with location at [ .

But if I access it from my PC , Android phone or IOS phone it gives 200 OK not 302.

Any idea why behavior is different in linode ?

The redirect happens because people like to sign up for Linodes and abuse Google, so Google has blocked a lot of Linode's IPv4 and IPv6 ranges. When blocked, you get redirected to that sorry page (give curl the -L flag to follow redirects) instead.

(Google doesn't submit abuse reports, so there really isn't anything Linode can do about this.)
