Not connected, Your IP:

Is Cloudflare now blocking all AirVPN IPs?

Recommended Posts

I noticed that I'm no longer able to connect to ReliableSite.net using any AirVPN IP. Cloudflare seems to be the source of the block. Here's the error message (see attached screenshot).

I've encountered errors like this before but was able to circumvent by changing the AirVPN server. But now, all AirVPN servers from all countries are blocked.

EDIT: After posting my message, I noticed that you have a really handy utility at https://airvpn.org/routes/ that shows which AirVPN IPs can connect to a given site. That was super helpful. It looks like all but two or three IPs are getting 403 (IP Address Banned), but I was able to use one of the functioning IPs to get on to ReliableSite and conduct business there.

Well, you never stop learning, eh? :)

But really, Cloudflare says directly what the problem is: The owner of this website, i.e., not CloudFlare, has banned the entire AS number from access. CloudFlare is just a CDN and DDoS protection, therefore something like a proxy.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.


» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.
