messageNow Sorted - Problems with peoples' IP addresses being blocked/banned
Posted by Administrator 17 December, 2014 12:41

This seems to be fixed now as I'm not getting any more reports of any issues.

-------

Sorry but for some reason a lot of you are getting the message that your IP address is banned. You've not been banned and we're looking into it.

If you are getting that message please email admin@eastdulwichforum.co.uk with your ip address [www.google.co.uk]

I don't usually read emails but will take a look today.

I found yesterday I could not post specifically from work (Though I could from my mobile).
Could that be why ?

Yes it could KK.

I can post from work, and today my mobile is working (using mobile data), but last night when I was trying to use home PC and phone connected to my wifi, neither would work.

I don't know KidKruger . Feel free to continue to test post to this message and send any blocked IPs to the email address. I can't reply to the emails but thank you for sending them, they all help.

I tried from BT Fon with a different IP to my Home Wi-Wi and it was still blocked.

Its complecated

The Whats my IP IP is your Public IP and can be changed my your ISP

Then you have a Local IP which Identifies you. and I thought this is the one used to block users.
I'm confused.

I have had this issue over the last few days and I think Admin made some changes to my settings. What ever was done or potentially not done I no longer have a problem..

Could this be something to do with CloudFlare?

messageRe: Problems with peoples' IP addressed being blocked/banned
Posted by Administrator 17 December, 2014 13:36

It's not the local IP that blocks people, but yes CloudFlare could be reason although that has been checked and we're still monitoring it.

I believe it may though I do not know how CloudFlare works.

The thing is you can access EDF and read posts but cannot send PMs or Post

I had a flash message on a tablet that my IP had been blocked, but then it seemed to work. I am posting this via the same wifi connection, but a different machine, to see if there's any problem now.

Edited to say, 'and there wasn't'.

No, foxy - your 'local' IP is not visible to the wider internet. The 'public' IP (actually your router's IP address) is what you show to the world and what is used to block you.

So why was I still blocked when going through BT Fon and bypassing my router. ? different IP
Because I was still using the same device. ?? with its local IP ??

I which I knew

Fon has been a bit weird recently - my own Fon router in misbehaving

I appreciate the efforts to help DulwichFox but your posts are making incorrect assumptions and confusing things.

My spidey senses are telling me this has something to do with BT IP addresses.

Could BT/Fon be the problem? When I was getting the blocked message I was also using Fon and my home laptop. I haven't been able to test that combination today but no problems on my phone or via the Southwark Lib wifi using the same laptop.

I seem to be blocked, as well...

Whew, that message got through! I can sporadically post, but mostly my replies simply don't go through. I got the Cloudflare filter a couple of times, but not all the time.

My wifi is working fine. Not tried posting using 3G on the dog yet though, I'll try now.

Fine using TalkTalk.

messageRe: Problems with peoples' IP addressed being blocked/banned
Posted by Penguin68 17 December, 2014 17:55

Well, I'm using BT, without apparent problem

Amended to say 'my own BT Broadband' - not their roaming Wifi or BT Fon - that may be a difference
