In order to more effectively mitigate DDoS attacks now and in the future we are changing the default gateway IP for all connections originating from flespi network.
If you configured the firewall in your infrastructure to accept traffic from our platform (connections from streams, plugins, proxy and various API or MQTT based channels), please update your configuration as soon as possible:
Old IP: 18.104.22.168 [is active gateway now]
New IP: 22.214.171.124 [will be active gateway soon]
The change will come into effect on Monday, 17 October 2022 or earlier in case we will experience DDoS attack.
This week we are also changing IP addresses for REST(flespi.io) and MQTT(mqtt.flespi.io) services, but this is based on DNS records and the change will go smoothly.
And finally we will setup new range of IP addresses for channels, although current addresses 193.193.165.X will be retained and fully operative as an entry point for existing channels. If your devices are using channel URI with domain name you are totally safe for any change. For those who hard configured in devices IP 193.193.165.X you may be sure we will continue to serve it now and in the future although its routing and DDoS protection level may differ.
