Hi Philip,

Can confirmed we have experienced the same issue and I have a ticket lodged with both Megaport and Microsoft over it. It seems to be fine over Equinix IX however.


Kind regards,

Traffic was reaching the remote end of our bilateral peer with Microsoft over Megaport Melbourne, but we had connectivity issues reaching hops past that. We stopped sending and receiving routes via this peer (keeping the BGP peer up for testing purposes) and after a few minutes most services appeared to be back to normal, with the traffic currently preferring a path via NSW-IX.
