Is there hope for TBA insanity?

Pressing F5 literally within moments of each other.  Getting in half the time, but 401/403 blocked half the time, sporadically/randomly, no pattern discerned (yet).

Running HelloWorld restlet, using TBA + OTP.

Trying at different times of day, from differing servers/networks/connections.

All else unchanged, except the TIMESTAMP (every second), NONCE (every request), and OTP code (every 30 secs).

Have tried REST WS, RESTlet, SOAP.

Not discerning any patterns, except ~ 50/50 go/no-go.

Investigating if cause could be round-robin DNS…our unique URL provided by ONS ( returns 2 public IP addresses, and HTTP_HEADERS received include Akamai cache ID+code…wondering if this could be related to the 50/50 confusion…investigating via locally spoofing DNS to return only one single public IP address for our URL — will add here what I discover.

Any idea on possible cause?  TIA

I’ve been holding off to see if anyone else has any input but given the silence, I’ll add my thoughts.

There’s quite a big difference between 401 and 403 – are you able to provide the breakdown of how often you are receiving each of these?

Are there any further details in the body of the response?
