It started failing a few days ago. I suspect that’s caused by the DDoS mitigations but let’s investigate. Possible outcomes: mark the test as fragile, fix the infra, call this an actual bug in Tails or its test suite.

Confirmed, the DDoS mitigation blocks replies to host -t A torproject.org which is run by our test suite. Implementing a firewall trick to work it around.

Fix deployed, that command now works when run from isotester1. Will check that it indeed fixes the affected test suite scenario before sending to the sysadmin on duty (groente) for QA.

groente, while you’re at it, please also review my similar fix for NTP: 4e1675cd665b5d3b4ee89827121f18250dc888cc..baefed44aa54db2cd361bc6c68213f3224004cfd :)
