The whole time we were on Maui, I couldn't post anything here, either. I got a message saying something about the IP being blocked.

Interesting..... It shows a welcome mat, and says to come on in, but after everything is said and done, it's locked at the bottom... I call shens.

Soooooooo.... Spamhaus had been getting hit by a lot of DDoS attacks recently, and it looks like one of the lists has begin taking the brunt of it, causing a lot of false positives to occur when the API was accessed to tell whether an IP was banned or not. This would make Spamhaus think an IP was blocked, and the plugin here was doing what it's told to do. That's one of the problems. Matt would be able to attest to if there were more.

So Matt would want to look for anything starting with 204.236.128-255 that you logged in from recently.

I was there yesterday, about 2:30pm
Its free wifi and slower than molasses. I doubt lots of spammers are paying the ferry fee to log in, but I wouldn't be surprised if lots of infected comps logged in there and hence sent emails off their IP and got it blacklisted. Would only take one or two and there are hundreds of phones and laptops using their wifi every day.

I changed a few setting that would be less restrictive to users already registered. Let me know if you still have any problems.

What I wrote was...

Doesn't work like that. If you could send PMs, the IP range isn't blocked. You can block by IP or by FQDN, if you are getting partial functionality you aren't being blocked by either. If you are able to do X, but not Y you are being filtered based on traffic type or something internal to your own machine.

And the subnets of the Duke Point terminal are irrelevant. You are connecting to that network, how the traffic is handled is done via policy. Plus the outside interface of the terminal and the inside subnets are going to be different IP ranges... If the guy(s) that built have a clue.

Can you find a different network?

Since you are being so helpful, why don't you tell us the Nanaimo Duke Point terminal's IP?

I will have to check the history on my laptop at home since I didn't think to take a screen shot. I could send PMs just couldn't post anything.

Discovered yesterday that the IP for the free wifi from the BC ferries Nanaimo terminal is blocked as a spammer. That's why you're not getting BC dive reports in a timely manner :p
