Proxy IP addresses

Post 1


I recently installed software on my other computer which allows me to hide my real IP address behind one provided by a proxy server but I now seem to have problems logging on to h2g2. Are IP addresses provided by a proxy server a problem for h2g2?

I can't say if proxy ip could be a problem, but I hope tech can help.

h2g2 uses a content delivery network (Cloudflare) that has security built into any page that posts data to the h2g2 servers.

It may be that Cloudflare has blocked the Proxy IPs as a source of constant spam used by ne'er-do-wells from posting info, such as log-in details, through to h2g2.
