Akamai: How to test property's configuration on staging network (spoofing)

 ·  β˜• 1 min read
  1. Find IP-address of Akamai staging servers.

    • If you don’t know edge hostname, use dig to get it from the hostname:
      dig example.com CNAME
      
    • Add “-staging” after edgehostname (e.g. www.example.com.edgesuite-staging.net, www.example.com.edgekey-staging.net).
    • Use dig (or just ping it) to get IP-address of staging network:
      dig www.example.com.edgekey-staging.net A
      

      Host file on Windows: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts;
      Host file on UNIX-systems: /etc/hosts.

  2. Spoof domain in your host file.

    • Use your editor of choice to add a record to host file:
      2.19.194.54 example.com
      
  3. Done. While the record persist in host file, you’re using staging network for selected domain.
