The Living Force
I have no trouble with this forum (so far), but just recently am unable to connect to SOTT.net with the VPN connected. Is this normal, or is something 'up'?
This is the error message I get:Specifically what error message do you get in the web browser? Sounds like a DNS issue with your VPN service not being able to resolve sott.net.
This is the error message I get:
Maybe it's something to do with google Chrome? Funny, but it just started relatively recently. Maybe it's a browser problem.
Interesting! I only have trouble with SOTT, and not the Cassiopaea Forum. Do they use the same Web Server? I think the problem may be on my side for some reason.Hmm, could be a few things. My guess is whatever Web Server sott.net uses refuses the connection from your VPN provider. They probably have some type of firewall/filtering setup that looks at the source IP, and blocks it based on something like source country or known VPN they don't want to accept connections from. Do you know which country your VPN provider resides in? You could try a different VPN service, if there's a free trial of one you could test it without spending any money. Or if your VPN service has a choice of which servers to use, you could use a different server.
You could also try resetting the cache in Chrome.
