This I.P address has been banned.
« on: January 04, 2020, 09:57:30 AM »
Hi there,
I hope one of the admin staff can help.
Iíve just tried to log-in on my laptop but thereís a message saying that my IP address has been banned, and the page immediately changes to some unrelated page. Iíve no reason that it should be and am at loss to know why. Iím writing this via my smart phone as itís my only option.
If someone can explain what I can do, Iíd be very grateful.
Regards,
RM

Is there a reason given for the I.P. ban in the warning?

Hi Jeff,
Yes, Iím in the UK. 
It doesnít give a reason but the message does add, ďMany times an old I.P. Ban will effect a member that it should notĒ. But Iíve never been banned before so i guess that wouldnít apply. 
Hoping you can help.
Best Rob

I'm still looking for it, and have not found it.  Some ISP's give you a different I.P. address each time you login. If we ban a current threat and that I.P. gets used later by someone else, they of course see the ban. Sometimes we ban an I.P. because of what we see are doing as a guest. Like trying to look at profiles one after another. They can't but they try.

Over 20 years these add up.

Hi Jeff, 
For security, I use a VPN and this may account for different IP addresses showing up but if I know this may cause problems for the site,I can turn it off.

Go to https://www.whatismyip.com/ on the machine that you are getting the ban notice on and get that number. Come back here on the device that lets you and send me a P.M with the offending I.P.  I'm not finding the ban.

Hi Jeff,
As requested I replied with my IP address by PM yesterday but canít see if anything was actually sent as I donít seem to have access to a mailbox. 
Perhaps you can let me know if you received it?
Best, Rob

There has to be another issue on that machine. No where is the I.P. address you gave me in our ban list and you are actually posting from the I.P, you gave me to look at. I went line by line through 18 pages of entries.

I would try to do a dns flush on your machine, delete all forum cache for all time from your browser as well as any bookmarks you may have to the site. Return to the forum via typing the address and see if that resolves things.
