RSS Pull Request being blocked although server IP is whitelisted

I have two sites, all hosted on the same dedicated server. Site B is unable to pull RSS feeds from Site A because the request is being blocked by Cloudflare ( Bot Fight Mode ). I have whitelisted the hostname and IP in the firewalls Cloudflare provides but that did not work. I paused Cloudflare on the site to check if that will work but it didn’t.

The Ray ID = 73c95d300b486ffb

The only solution is for me to Allow even unidentified bots by changing the setting to Allow. I do not want to leave the Bot Setting to Allow and will be happy to know what exactly is causing the request to be blocked and how to allow SITE B requests.

I have the same issue. google news wont pull the article since 4 days ago.

try the fetchrss and it says “need review the security of your connection before proceeding”

If the request is being blocked by Bot Fight Mode, the only way around it is whitelisting the originating IP in IP Access Rules.
