Hi Tobias, Are you sure they need a 'referrer'? Some days ago I asked a question about the 'User-Agent'-header in (OSM)-requests , with a link to the 'Tile Usage Policy page , which states: "If known, a valid HTTP Referer."
In our case, I'm wondering what the referrer should be... And are people in a corporate network not always sending the proxy as referrer? Or their actual domain? Mmm, see : you have to add a 'referer' header (no type) :-) Funny stuff those standards Regards, Richard  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_referer  https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2018-April/052902.html  https://operations.osmfoundation.org/policies/tiles/  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_header_fields On 14-04-18 00:23, Tobias Wendorff wrote: > 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.
