"ping" fails when running from google- cloud on specific IP

cn flag

I'm trying to access trough google cloud servers. I got the IP When i ping it locally on my computer it works fine.

Local results:

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=118
Reply from bytes=32 time=8ms TTL=118
Reply from bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=118
Reply from bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=118

but when i do it from the server it is stuck like this:

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

How can i contact this website through the cloud (i need a script to run)?

EDIT: I think this site is only available in my country (israel). Is there any (simple) way to fool it? I want to create a python script for it and run it on a server

If the API is using geolocation, then you will need to send the requests from a server/service that gelocation allows. The is often performed via VPNs.
br flag

Checked from my computer and i got the same error, there is no ping result. Also i cant reach the Server on another common Port.

Can you reach the site with curl from your computer ?


Try to check the Server for any firewall rules or IP Filters, when the connection works on your computer some policies blocking other connections.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
