Hi there, after having problems with loading XYZ tiles from OSM (many timeouts), I've read that IPs without referrer get blocked faster and longer than IPs with referrer due to OSM's tile policy.
QGIS isn't sending out a referrer at all. So for users with a fixed IP (like a corporate network), will get blocked way faster and longer. On the other hand, community's opinion about this is that affected corporations should get a paid or own tile server to not slow down the existing ones. I've checked the requests of QGIS and there's no referrer in header. Would it be possible to add an option to set an referrer in general? Not to override OSM's limits, but to give the user more control if the target service needs a referrer. libcurl and GDAL support this of course. Right now, the only way is to setup a local proxy and add an referrer. But when accessing an HTTPS service, that is not what you want at all ;) Best regards, Tobias _______________________________________________ QGIS-Developer mailing list QGIS-Developer@lists.osgeo.org List info: https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-developer Unsubscribe: https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-developer
