I think its a function of checking for proxy servers and/or spoofing, but I don't actually know. I think I know why I got it.

My external IP changed between the request and the delivery and it was not a page that made the request, rather a process called from within a page. (the page - which works by refreshes - behaves, but the 'handed off process' is unaware of the return IP target changes.

Soooo - yes it has to do with refreshing the page and the out-of-snyc (actaully asynchronous) process that is embedded in the page. The process has a dependency on teh page which is temporarily unreliable.

In my case critical stations have truly redundant Internet.  Externally, they seem to be an fixed IPs - BUT - there is a fancy-ass gigagbit multi-wan router/shaper that uses multiple carriers to load-balance and have failover.  That box farms out requests to the best transporter working like an in-line proxy server then hands then back on 4 separate subnets that all have different characteristics. Whatever Smiley

Actually, I can get the same error in FireFox by refreshing the Admin Center page. (Going to do more checking.)

Edited:
After changing the address of the javascript to the one on yabbforumsoftware.com, the javascript reloads properly - even on a different server. So it and of looks like there's block from yabbforum.com to keep the file from being hit too often?

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

In the Admin Center Index and at the top of the detailed version check, Chrome & opera there is an intermittent Error - Remote Server not Available. I'm pretty sure I know the primary cause and why those two browsers are affected, bu I do not know the mechanism in the browser.
