Proxy Access to this forum is denied... why ?
Random here.... i use proxy all the time (part of the job) but always turned it off to access my forum now its off i get the message Proxy Access to this forum is denied! ....

so i try a friends computer totally different network still the same message..... how is this? the security has blocked a national IP? or something?

The specific settings should be in Settings.pl - find
Code (Perl)Select All
$disallow_proxy_on =  

and
Code (Perl)Select All
$disallow_proxy_htaccess =  

and set the values to 0 - that will disable the proxy checks.

Once you're able to get in, go to the Admin Center -> Guardian Settings and double check what's there.

The Proxy list in Guardian is actually a white-list (Sorry  Embarrassed ).

Add the Proxies you want to allow into that list, otherwise Guardian will block nearly everything it sees that might be a proxy. Since this just started happening, I'd check with your host and see if they added any extra security or made any changes that would make Guardian misidentify regular IPs as being from a proxy. In the meantime, turning off Proxy checking or turning off Guardian should work to let you and your members in.

I'm thinking that since this happened to a forum that had been running fine, it's not a bug but something that happened on the server-level - a change in some sort of security protocol on your host.

Also, instead of white-listing IPs you can also add user ids
