Message from PayPal - since using hotspot?

Thu Jun 03, 2010 7:43 am

Hi there,
I got an email this morning from paypal - and yes, I've done checks to ensure that is 100% paypal.
Has anyone got a message like this? Is there really anything that needs to be done, since it seems to be working fine.
Dear XXXXXXXXXXX,

Please check your server that handles PayPal Instant Payment Notifications (IPN). Instant Payment Notifications sent to the following URL(s) are failing:

http://XXXXXXXXXX:81//user?payment=payp ... 77&subid=1

If you do not recognize this URL, you may be using a service provider that is using IPN on your behalf. Please contact your service provider with the above information. If this problem continues, IPNs may be disabled for your account.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this issue.


Yours sincerely,

PayPal

Can PayPal actually post the IPN to

http://XXXXXXXXXX:81//user

?

If your IPN URL is unreachable by PayPal, like it's behind NAT and your ADSL router for example, then you'll get that message.
Don't forget to give me at least a tenner a month, every month

Hi
Thanks for the reply. I actually use cable so its direct into the MK router. Any idea on the ports/address that need to be opened to allow this?

Look at the URL: http://XXXXXXXXXX:81//user?payment=payp ... 77&subid=1.
It's tcp/81 on whatever IP is referenced in the URL, or resolved from the hostname referenced in the URL.

See that is the strange thing - the host name is my IP and port 81 is open. So based on that it I shouldn't be getting these message correct?

I've set the correct rules for the port.

Are you using Apache? If so, you will need to set it to listen on port 81 also. PayPal uses port 80 as standard, and 81 and a couple other ports are used if your ISP blocks port 80.

I'm only use the RB software and usermanager on the network - purely for the hotspot control.
Shall i just forget about this email I've received from them?

I would contact a PayPal rep and insure all is well with your account.
