Azure Logic App with region of North Europe routing info via US servers

na 126 Reputation points

We have a logic app with a location of Northern Europe.

The Logic app uses a "Create File SFTP" Action to create a file on an SFTP server in Europe.

The owner of the server has blocked our attempts to create a file, saying that one of hops is based in the US, and they don't accept data that has landed in the U.S.

I'm not debating their policy, the question is, if the logic app is based in North Europe (Irish data center), why would the sftp file create request be routing through U.S Servers?

I thought it was maybe that once the packet hits the internet, it can go anywhere, but the vendor says the request consistently has a hop from a U.S Ip address.

    According to the documentation the SFTP-SSH is a managed connector and as such the outbound IP addresses should follow the list in the this document.

    Your description is very strange and you should check with the owner of the SFTP server to re-check the procedure which led him to the conclusion that your logic apps uses an IP at US. It sound like an issue in his side in first glance.

    If the Logic ASpp located at North Europe, then the IP that your SFTP server should see is in the ranges:,,,, -, -,, -, -

    There should be NO routing through U.S Servers from the Azure side (including the connector or the API of the Azure SFTP service.

    Note! This is well documented
