Cloudflare blocked me from the office yesterday
« on: 04/12/2022 09:38 am »
Hi, I tried to access nasaspaceflight.com from the office yesterday (we're allowed reasonable personal use), and I was blocked by cloudflare:

"Access was denied Error code 1020
You do not have access to http://nasaspaceflight.com.
The site owner may have set restrictions that prevent you from accessing the site. Contact the site owner for access or try loading the page again."

Working ok today from home (obviously!).

It's possible that our gateway was blocked (large company) as we've seen similar from other sites, when they get hit by a large number of requests from that gateway, they think it's a DoS attack, whereas in fact it's just a lot of internal individual users.

I'll check again next time I'm in, but this is the first time I've seen this for NSF.
PM if you need more details (eg company name)

Just wanted to report this in case others have the same issue.

Actually was able to try again via VPN today - still blocked for a different system on our network:

It says to check the cloudflare log for

"Ray ID 6fab024b0b1476ed"

Appreciate if you could investigate?

I can access from home, but from a system at work, it is blocked - so the company gateway has been black flagged for some reason. SO, specific to that one.

Can you DM me the source IP (https://whatismyipaddress.com/) from the affected connection and also a new RayID  (with a rough timestamp) ?

Thanks
