Had a strange occurrence today on one of our origin servers. Long story short the license detection in Wowza randomly barfed and knocked the origin off for about 30 mins, see below:
ERROR server comment 2015-07-22 15:03:51 - - - - - 33.948 - - - - - - - The Wowza Media Systems Software licensing system was not able to connect to the licensing server to validate your license. Please validate that your machine is able to send HTTP data over TCP port 80 to the Internet. If this problem persists, please visit

This came out of nowhere and have never seen it before, but we have a perp license for this particular box. Also, we were able to successfully determine that network access was available out of this machine at the time.
Any clues as to the cause? Recommendations/suggestions for prevention?
