    Default Forum may be blocking my home IP address

    I am currently unable to log-on from home, and I think that the forum's software is blocking my IP address.

    I tried to post code in response to a question last week, and the forum wouldn't accept the post; it kept showing an empty page. Here's what I think happened: I think all of us are finding that there is some code that the forum won't allow you to post, non-malicious code, but still perhaps the forum thinks that it is malicious. After trying a few times, I think that it put my home IP address but not my user ID on a banned list.

    Is this assessment correct, and if so, is there a way to fix it? Thanks

    Can you send me your home ip address? (as a private message if you prefer) I will try to find a way to query your ip in admin panel.

    Hi Fubarable,

    I checked the forum admin panel. I also found your ip addresses there. The forums software does not report anything wrong related to your ip address. Additionally, there is no option to ban a user by ip. The reson for the error you got should be something else.

    Let me know if problem continues or if you think i can help in any way. You can PM me or write here. But i can not guarantee a fast response. Sorry about that.

    are you still blocked at home? If you're not using static ip address, you could just release it and get a new ip from the dhcp server. That way, you will know if its the forum or your computer.

    Yes, I am still being blocked, ever since I tried to post code containing key binding code, in fact the program contained in the zip/jar file that I uploaded in this thread: How to simply get if a key is pushed?.

    I don't believe that it's a static ip address, but I'm not sure how to get a new ip from a dhcp server. All I know is that all of the computers at my house (there are 4 that I've tried) seem to be blocked. I'll have to look more into what you suggest. Thanks angry boy for your interest and suggestion. And thanks also java tip.

    Usually, I goto my modem's default ip which is 192.168.1.1 then login. There's a release button that lets me release the ip address. After that I just turn off the modem for about 20m, and when I turn it back on, I get a different ip address. But the procedure is different for different ISP's, so you'll have to google a bit.

    if you're running a windows machine you can goto cmd and type ipconfig /flushdns and then ipconfig /release ipconfig/renew and it will get you a new IP

    Are you using dynamic IP?
