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

Just recently relocated to India and Cloudflare is blocking my ISP. It also blocks me when I use my daughters ISP, so I guess it applies quite generally. I checked the URL: https://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check and there are several red marks so I'm guessing that I will be using a VPN to access this site going forward, which is a pain, but I understand that issue with Spam all too well.

I am blocked from nasaspaceflight.com on my phone when VPN is enabled, and it works just fine when I disable VPN.  I really don't want to have to disable VPN when I'm on wifi to get to NSF.  I'm attaching screenshots of the block message.

It's likely a specific VPN IP address, not the entire VPN that cloudflare is blocking (usually due to large use by spammers and bots - which is why India is pretty much blocked by cloudflare as that's where 99 percent of it comes from). So that should clear. I can't imagine the VPN will be serving you a static IP address?
