Unable to download - IP Blocked

Post by sidekick » September 27th, 2019, 4:51 pm

Hi all
Been trying to download IPFire for past few days now. I connect to internet via mobile broadband and each time its a new IP address. However, whenever I try to download I get message that I am blocked. Not sure what's happening.
Thanx

On the block page should be a link with more informations why the IP is blocked. In most cases because this ip is listed on spamhaus or other blocklists (known infected hosts ...)

Yes, check for reasons mentioned if any because if you're using the different IP every time then its a bit strange.

I too face the same issue, I'm behind NAT and my ISP public IP is dynamic. It keeps changing every two days.
For some reasons some of the IP are blocked . For the last one week , i was able to access the forum only for 2 days.

I had raised the concern with the ISP , but they do not heed to any request. ;D

I'm planning to have a static IP (public), just for this reason, some how not convinced to pay for the IP for accessing the forum.
Regards

Sri
