PageKite proxy accounts may at times experience dropping connections. When using Pagekite as a callback for a service, it sometimes rejects connections with a failure like the following pasted. If you notice it says rejected=ips_per_sec, this means we’re facing throttling. Please note that the PageKite cli command is usually reporting “<< pagekite.py [flying] Kites are flying and all is well.”, while this error happens, so there is no chance that it is a problem with the machine running pagekite client.
There is a limit placed on all accounts to tackle spam and phishing. Email PageKite support to put your premium/paying account on the unthrottled list, so that you can avoid this artificial limit.
