Recurrent network connectivity issues

I'm having network connectivity issues in Appveyor since the last few days in my NodeJS applications, which is forcing us to rebuild a commit (even several times) for Appveyor so succeed, which obviously slows us down as a team.

Are there known network issues in Appveyor recently?

    Is it like a specific npm package having issues? Can you please do a simple public repo reproducing the error?

    Hi Feodor,

    I’m not sure that’s the issue. The repos have been working fine in the past, and didn’t have any network connectivity problem in Travis CI in months.

    The mentioned modules are open source, in case you want to inspect their dependencies:


    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like it's OK now?

    Having a simple repo reproducing the issue is really helpful. Like this case for example. What was initially looking as failure to install npm module turned out to be a problem of downloading files from in index.js of those modules. That was Pro (non-Azure) environment and it appeared there was some misconfiguration on edge servers of GitHub's CDN provider. It took around 2 months to finally fix that.

    This issue happened in different regions on Azure and it could be even more tricky to resolve. I just want to say more specific information you are able to provide is better :)

    Hi Feodor,

    I’ll create small project, and will contact you again in case the issue persist.

    Thanks in advance.
