Foreign I.P. connectivity
 
Hello,
I hope I'm putting this in the right spot...


I'm stationed in Japan and have just recently begun to have connection issues to the forums. Unless I am at work using a US I.P. or using an I.P. hider like hidemyass.com I am unable to connect using my off base Internet or my IPhone.

Could this be looked into?

Thank you

I hope somebody knows the answer - I'm curious myself!

I'm not the forum admin or mod but my guess is it may be due to spam they were getting from your side of the world a little while back?

Did you ever get this sorted?

Crash,
Same problem here in Korea. The server Nazi's that run the overseas ip address block the forum for the cmp. Why? I don't know. Other forums no problem. I just keep using hidemyass.com.

Same issue here in Saudi, unless I use my VPN account no access for me!

Forum members from another firearm forum I frequent have posted having the same issue from their foreign location.

Not that this helps you, but I'm in the mid east desert and have had no connection issues for a year.

For what it's worth, I'm stationed in the UK and haven't noticed any connectivity issues with the forums from home.

any feedback on this?

I have blocked all of Asia from the forum. I was getting over 1000 requests from spammers. Easier for me to just block the entire country.

That sucks for us guys stationed overseas. I've spent a lot of money over the years with CMP and the forums keep me in the loop for a lot of the new things CMP sells. I've learned that if I don't watch the forum, then I could miss all kinds of offerings from CMP. I can't count the number of active duty folks I've gotten into CMP over the years. Your loss I guess...

Ghost meant continent, not country. ;)

There are ways around the block.
