cURL error 7: Failed to connect to port 80: Connection refused (see

Request goes through from my main machine but fails from production. I also can't ping the service.

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From ( icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From ( icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From ( icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
--- ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2003ms

The service wasn't used abusively and I also did nothing against TOS. What happens?

Just to check - you have read and followed ?

Yes. I also use a custom User Agent.

Have you sent more than 1 request per sec? Sth. triggered the blocking, so reade the usage policy closely again.

At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, are you sure that what you're seeing is an actual block applied by OSM's nominatim server? I hesitate to call it a "service", because it's really not designed to be one.

If you try and make outbound connections on port 80 to other servers using "telnet ipaddress 80" from your "live" server, what happens?

The ban has been lifted. Not sure what happened. Thanks.
