I have pinging enabled, or I have pinging enabled only for dslreports. Line quality tests ping OK but the Smokeping test fails. What is the IP address of the smokeping server?

    • ny-monitor.dslreports.com -
    • dslreports-west2.speakeasy.net - and
    • dslreports2-west.megapath.net -

Recommend putting these into your rules by IP address.

Smokeping may do an initial reachability call-out from mail.dslreports.com ( so it is also recommended to add a rule for that IP address.

Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • The ip address listed for "ny-monitor.dslreports.com" ( is unreachable. I did a lookup of "ny-monitor.dslreports.com" and received a different ip address ( I saw no response to r0339's similar post. Is this FAQ wrong?

  • Smokeping is a great tool that is very useful. But I haven't had results from NY for many months. Perhaps the maintainers should just remove the NY configuration?

  • The IP address for ny-monitor.dslreports.com is incorrect- A ping to ny-monitor.dslreports.com returns u15150124.onlinehome-server.com ( It appears that smokeping is hardwired to, which is UNREACHABLE $ ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. ^C --- ping statistics --- 36 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 35279ms Please change smokeping so that the NYC location returns data, otherwise this tool has limited utility.
