All of my miner boxes are experiencing intermittent connectivity with the pool. I'm using the mine.aeon-pool.com address which seems to roundrobin. It doesn't seem to be a DNS issue but rather a coms issue with the port.
I've tried 5555 and 7777 and it happens with both, randomly. It says that it didn't get a response, I can post the error message later when I'm at home.
I did think it could be an issue with my Firewall (Fortigate 50E) but it shows all traffic passing. I also tried it through a VPN that exists in my country (Canada) and still the same behavior. Which means its not blocking the network traffic, using different DNS servers, and still broken.
As for my connection, I run a constant monitor on it via SNMP. I show no packet loss, and can ping outside just fine. My connection has plenty of throughput as well, so its not a congestion issue.
This is killing my hashrate. Anyone experiencing this? Would using the regional pool addresses help?
