This problem happens every month.

Post by N4KVE »

About once a month I answer a post here, & when I hit send I get the message “Your IP 209.42.54.186 has been blocked because it has been blacklisted etc etc. So I then have to go to my cell phone, turn off WiFi, & retype my message using cellphone data. I have plenty of data to spare, I just hate typing my answer twice. After a week, everything returns to normal for another 3 weeks until it starts again. Since I don’t change anything, why does this problem that comes, & goes happen? GARY

I have moved this to the help forum. We will look into this. At the moment I know of nothing that will be causing it.

Thanks. And yet today, everything is fine. But this happens every month. But I figured out if I save my post, I can go to my cell phone, & send it from there using cell phone data. Oh well, until next time. I have seen others complain about the same problem. But when this happens, I can still post on other forums. GARY.

And today I can’t log in from my I Phone with my WiFi. Turn off WiFi, & use cellphone data, & it works. But yet WiFi works on all the other forums I frequent. GARY.

=blocked. Perhaps disable your proxy/vpn to connect to FSN N4KVE. Legio would know better than I, but perhaps there is a way to whitelist you specifically. I don't think there is though if you are using a proxy/vpn. Not much point to obscuring your connection for FSN though, I'm not aware of any trackers that run on this site.

I don’t try to block anything. But I have my cookies turned off to avoid getting unwanted advertising. Many gun sites ask me to turn on my cookies. Because of this I can not enter the Classic Arms gun giveaways every few weeks. I’m OK with that. GARY.

No, you don’t understand. That IP that you used is blocked. Either change your IP if you can, or ask to unblock it if you cannot.

And yet today, for the first time in 2+ weeks, I can post here from my I-Pad. I didn’t change a thing. GARY
