Foreign IP addresses banned?
« on: May 04, 2022, 05:59:25 am »
I get a message that my user is banned. Did the forum block foreign IP addresses? When not logged in, I get a message that my user (Guest) is banned too.

Humbo,

I will check with the administrator.   I doubt if all foreign IP addresses are banned, but there are continuous computer-generated attempts to gain access to forum which might cause the administrator to take security measures.

Bruce,
I got it sorted out. I tried from another computer on the same network, and I could access the site. Very strange. I deleted all my browser data, and now I can luckily access the site again without using a US proxy.
