A.mapillary.com unavailable

Hello, there.

I tried to upload images (lots of them) with mapillary_tool, but a.mapillary.com does not seem available:
$ ping a.mapillary.com

A separate test from an online utility gave me the same result, and my connection is otherwise functional. Did someone unplug the server?

Awaiting your answers,

Regards.

Confirmed, here it does not work either.

Be wary using ping to check websites. Many have ICMP blocked. Try telnet on port 80 or 443.

telnet a.mapillary.com 80

It’s there…

But you used IPv6. The server may be unavailable in IPv4 but OK in IPv6.

Besides, I still cannot upload:

It also has multiple aliases

host a.mapillary.com
a.mapillary.com is an alias for external-2146820777.eu-west-1.elb.amazonaws.com.
external-2146820777.eu-west-1.elb.amazonaws.com has address 52.30.28.111
external-2146820777.eu-west-1.elb.amazonaws.com has address 34.250.52.220
external-2146820777.eu-west-1.elb.amazonaws.com has address 63.35.59.75

All ipv4 addresses telnet connected on port 80 and 443
A ping from here to 34.250.52.220 fails

From memory broken pipe means closed socket at the peer end. Sorry not much help.
