    Access to Revitforum from Hong Kong is patchy at best

    Using my Google Nexus phone, which uses Google DNS servers, I can open this site without a problem here in a cold Hong Kong. However, using DNS at work or other Hong Kong ISP, the site is inaccessible, does anyone else have the same problem?

    This is because RFO is blocking all IP addressed that originate from China. Please reefer to this thread for more information. http://www.revitforum.org/forum-sugg...html#post58119 or you may contact one of the RFO administrators to inquire about site accessibility.

    I don't think we are blocking all of the IP's from any country....but we have been blocking IP ranges that have been spamming our site constantly...

    No we block all Chinese IP address by default.

    That might still be the case Alex, but had forgotten about it.... The server settings seems to stand the hacking attempts, so will look into it again, since no one should be blocked if it's not absolute necessary.

    CN,HK,TW and KR removed from the blacklist! Sorry mates - And crossing my fingers that that the security settings at server level will keep everybody safe.
