403 Forbidden Error
« on: May 07, 2017, 10:29:51 AM »
I have since quite a long time a problem while trying to access the forum. Everytime I get a 403 Forbidden Error when I use my Wifi. It is only possible with mobile data of my Smartphone to access it. Is there any solution for that ?

My smartphone connects both on the home wifi and phone networks when roaming.  The laps connect through the wifi.  I would suggest some settings error, but I can't recommend any fixes.

Havé you tried using a cabled connection to your router? Your mobile data and your home network uses different IP ranges, and you might have stumbled upon a range which have been blocked by the admin. I had the same issue some time ago, and he cleared it right up.
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

Further to Alan F's suggestion, and assuming you are using your smartphone through the WiFi, try running your smartphone through someone else's Wifi

If you get the 403 error running through your WiFi, bit not through someone else's, then the problem is almost certainly your IP number.

Contact your ISP if you need it changed

I'm sorry you're having connection issues. Please send me a private message containing the IP address that is used when you're connected to Wi-Fi. You can find out your IP address by going to Network Tools.

There has been an increase in malicious activity against the server this website is on in recent months, and a large number of IP addresses have been blocked. It doesn't mean your specific address was involved, but it's likely in the same range of addresses.

I'm getting regular times when I get a 403 error as well. I'll PM you the IP addy next time it happens.
