Accessing google from linode gives different HTTP return code
When I use curl to access www.google.com from linode it gives 302 with location at [https://ipv6.google.com/sorry/index?continue=https://www.google.com/&q=EhAmADwDAAAAAPA8k .
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.)
