MDS : Map Data Services | New IP address + New look coming up soon..

Sep 22, 2014   //   by Frederic P   //   Other  //  No Comments


The MDS IP address of the server was changed Friday night (19 Sept 2014).
Depending on the version of Dekho, when the MDSFoundationMap (MapServer) is not available Dekho can be unusable for an organisation.

  • Issue: Some organisations have their network or a subnet configured to allow MDSFoundationMap access via only a fixed IP address.
  • Resolution: Check your firewall/network and make sure the IP is allowed to get through. [ Note: While the Public DNS name currently resolves to the IP address, this may change and it is better for customers not to rely on this IP when configuring their network communications]
  • How to test: Use a browser and go to then try
  • Get notified: If you would like to be automatically notified of MDS changes (possibly) affecting your system, please register here:
