I have set up a CNAME record to point to an S3 bucket. It's been up for 4 days, and the results of a DIG Lookup show that it is in place:
;; QUESTION SECTION: ;railroad.odehengineers.com. IN A ;; ANSWER SECTION: railroad.odehengineers.com. 3600 IN CNAME railroad.odeh.s3.amazonaws.com. railroad.odeh.s3.amazonaws.com. 60 IN CNAME s3-directional-w.amazonaws.com. s3-directional-w.amazonaws.com. 3613 IN CNAME s3-1-w.amazonaws.com. s3-1-w.amazonaws.com. 60 IN A 22.214.171.124
I created a test page
test.html which should be visible from both:
But only the first, direct URL works. The other gives a 404.
Any thoughts? Do I need to coordinate at all with Amazon? Or am I just misunderstanding the purpose of a CNAME record?
