possible IP block ?

For constructive feedback and support questions concerning ZFI.

possible IP block ?

Postby Hosei on Tue Sep 17, 2013 10:54 am

Hi there

This is a request for some administration help.

for some reason I can't connect to zenforum international using my home wifi connection. I can use my phone connection (as I'm doing now) - but any time I try to connect, using any browser or device, from my home wifi connection.. I get no page, or "page cannot be displayed" or some such thing.

My home IP number is 82.=========- could someone check, if it's possible, to see if there's some kind of server-side IP block? I'd be very appreciative

cheers!

We have never blocked IP addresses. When someone is identified as attempting to register from an IP identified with spammers, we just delete the registration request witout banning the IP.

I suggest turning off the modum and/or router then the computer and rebooting the modum first, then the router, then the computer and see if the connection works.

If not, then ask your internet Service Provider if they can give you a clue about what is happening. Someone at your ISP can attempt to access ZFI using the same IP.

If there is a block from your ISP to ZFI then you would get that notice (as some countries get visiting the pirate bay for instance)
ZFI is not in any peerblock or peer guardian list, so the issue is on your side.
Try this:

Go to start, typ cmd in the searchbar and press enter.
Typ ipconfig /flushdns and press enter.

That usually does the trick.
