Often can't access forum.bitcoin.com even if individual threads etc are accessible

Fri Mar 24, 2017 5:20 pm

I get this error almost all the time when trying to access the forum from my Japanese server (via vpn). Is the forum blocked in Japan?

I have sent a link of this thread to the administration team on telegram, hopefully they can suggest a solution for you.

I highly doubt that the forum would be banned in Japan.

Yes me neither. It's rather weird. Maybe just Japanese vpns are banned?

Maybe the forum webserver has blocked your VPN's IP, due to the recent DDoS attacks?

Since it's an nginx error, we can deduct that you are connecting to the server and not timing out. The 403 error means that nginx is denying your web requests for some reason.

I think this is correct... I have the same problem when trying to visit the forum from home, but not when i'm at the office... During the time of the Ddos, i was working from home and i tried to connect to the forum several times... So cloudflare might have decided to blacklist my home ip.
I didn't think this was a problem, i tought it would solve itself either when cloudflare de-blacklisted my ip, or when my isp's ip lease expired and i got a new ip.

I also very often cannot enter the forum, since I write that there is no access to the site. What can it be connected with and how long will it last?
