Apple Firewall Issues

Everyone,

Just a heads up that it looks like Apple may be using a different service now to load the App Store. I ran into the issue today where the App Store was blocked for all of our students' iPads. I ran a trace on the HTTPS traffic coming from the device when it said it couldn't connect and I found it trying to hit this IP: 69.192.18.217

That IP also resolves to the domain name of:

http://a69-192-18-217.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com/

I hope this helps anyone that may be having issues connecting to the App Store or maybe some can provide us with info on why the App Store seems to want to connect to that IP now.

Thanks!
Jesse
