Can't open the forum - IP blocked


Recommended Posts

Whenever I try to enter the forum I get an error message instead of the site. Any URL I use to the forum returns the same message. I can't log onto the forum, or even see it, from my mac, windows computer or windows laptop or windows phone, and neither in Firefox, Chrome or IE. 
I can however see the forum and even log in and post from my phone if I switch off my wifi and use 4G instead. So it seems to be an issue with my IP address.
the error I get from the site says "error
the request could not be satisfied
 request blockedgenerated by CloudFront
request ID: [string of letters and numbers that changes every time]"
this problem has persisted since yesterday evening.

Nothing was changed on my end. It happened from one hour to the next yesterday evening. 

BTW this only happens with the subdomain forum.game-labs.net www.game-labs.net works fine.

VPN, or any other measure to change my IP, works. But it's a bit of a pain. From searching around for a cause to this problem I've observed that the same issue has hit multiple other forums with Invision Community IP Boards Software. Why I'm the only one hit here I don't know, but it could also be that I'm not and the others that are affected by this just haven't been able to get around it and write so here. From briefly reading about it this seems to be a security setting issue on the forum provider end, or otherwise an issue with the CNAME record.

Might be your DNS provider. What do you get if you run this from the OS:

nslookup forum.game-labs.net
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8
