1.1.1.1 Problem With PlayStation Services

Hey Cloudflare !!
I’m having issue with PlayStation Services after using 1.1.1.1 DNS on Transworld Home Internet from Pakistan :pakistan:. This issue is happening since when Cloudflare changed their routing 2-3 months ago. My internet AS Number is (AS135407) from Karachi, Pakistan.

Hi, can you find out which domain names are failing to resolve?

Yes these are the domain lists which i’m getting issue’s.

  1. [fuk01.ps4.update.playstation.net]
  2. [gs-sec.ww.np.dl.playstation.net]
  3. [get.net.playstation.net]
  4. [post.net.playstation.net]
  5. [gs2.ww.prod.dl.playstation.net]

Thanks, that’s helpful! I’ll see if I can spot any problems with these domains.

Yeah issue is now resolved but on this domain [gs2.ww.prod.dl.playstation.net] i have everytime connected to different ip addresses sometimes from FRANCE, FRANKFURT and OMAN. Can you please check this issue and resolve it.

I’m not sure. Cloudflare isn’t authoritative for this domain, the resolver only serves addresses that were returned by the authoritative nameserver for the domain. Sony’s CDN should know the resolver is in Karachi, so it shouldn’t redirect you to far away places. I checked a few returned addresses and they all seemed to be about 10ms away, but it’s possible some of them are not. It would be best if you can find addresses that are far away and open a ticket with Sony.

This is a difference between 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 DNS. I’m connected from my ISP server on 8.8.8.8 DNS and on 1.1.1.1 i’m connected from Oman servers.

Good Morning!!!
It is the same as always the problem that it is sending you to more distant servers… Cloudflare does not allow EDNS ECS for a privacy matter…
You are being asked to enable this feature since 1.1.1.1 was born, or at least create a new / ip server with ECS support like 9.9.9.9 does… but I have already given up hope that this will happen…
There are still many cases like this, some of them Cloudflare can mend them in some way, others not…

Cheers!!!

Case study with my ISP TELECENTRO in Buenos Aires - Argentina:

Using Cloudflare’s dns (1.1.1.1):
nslookup a1796.h.akamai.net 1.1.1.1
Servidor: one.one.one.one
Address: 1.1.1.1

Respuesta no autoritativa:
Nombre: a1796.h.akamai.net
Addresses: 200.123.197.171
200.123.197.154
200.123.197.168
200.123.197.163
200.123.197.152
200.123.197.176
200.123.197.153
200.123.197.177
200.123.197.179

These ip’s are from akamai servers that are inside the IXP CABASE, it is very close to my location but it is suboptimal… now we will see what happens with 8.8.8.8…

Using Google dns (8.8.8.8):
nslookup a1796.h.akamai.net 8.8.8.8
Servidor: dns.google
Address: 8.8.8.8

Respuesta no autoritativa:
Nombre: a1796.h.akamai.net
Addresses: 181.44.74.184
181.44.74.187
181.44.74.170
181.44.74.179
181.44.74.176
181.44.74.178
181.44.74.186
181.44.74.171
181.44.74.185

As you can see here, these ip’s correspond to akamai servers that are hosted within the network of my ISP (TELECENTRO). This IS 100% optimal.

This happens thanks to both Akamai and Google supporting EDNS ECS.

Cheers!!!

This is true, you won’t get responses tailored to your prefix because 1.1.1.1 doesn’t relay your prefix information to the nameservers.
