Caught In A Range Ban

Post by CandyAss »

So i got home and tried to connect to CnR as usual but nope, getting this error:

Code: Select all


[00:41:39] Connecting to 167.114.42.236:7777...

[00:41:45] The server didn't respond. Retrying..

I can connect to other servers, only CBCNR is 'Retrieving info...' in the SA-MP client.

I'm posting from the same IP so could someone check it out please?

Had no problems connecting from another location in town btw

edit:

doesnt resolve on my laptop (same network) either

update:

I am now in another part of the same town and i can connect to the servers just fine from my laptop, obviously because of a different IP.
When i get back home the servers probably aren't going to respond, will check then.

AFAIK your ISP might be using CGNAT (lots of public IPs over 1 IPv4) and someone might be already banned on that specific IP you're using.

try playing with VPN connected to closest server to your location.

Also try playing from neighbour's wifi by seducing his wife and forcing her to give you password lul

edit: If you are really really bored and wanna play, and you are technical, you can set-up your own Amazon EC2 instance with VPN running on Elastic IP, and play through it; its free.

It's been over 2 weeks since i last connected from here

Code: Select all


26.01|14:13:19 <Renegade334> What about now?
26.01|21:01:09 <CandyAss> Still nothing. [21:00:28] The server didn't respond. Retrying..
26.01|21:04:52 <Renegade334> I can't really tell what the problem is
26.01|21:05:49 <Renegade334> If it's a rangeban, it's not one that I'm able to remove
26.01|21:06:13 <CandyAss> i played from another place today
26.01|21:06:21 <CandyAss> just cant connect from home
26.01|21:06:26 <Renegade334> how long has it been an issue?
26.01|21:06:38 <CandyAss> i discovered it like a week ago
26.01|21:07:46 <CandyAss> so i guess been like a week, havent been playing from here for a while tho
26.01|21:08:12 <CandyAss> but they set a curfew here from 9pm to 4:30am so yeah
26.01|21:08:29 <Renegade334> yeah you connected on the 17th by the looks of things
26.01|21:08:52 <CandyAss> from the same ip ?
26.01|21:09:16 <Renegade334> yeah
26.01|21:09:20 <Renegade334> same IP
26.01|21:09:21 <CandyAss> okay, strange
26.01|21:09:26 <Renegade334> so I can't work out what's changed
26.01|21:09:34 <CandyAss> me neither :/
26.01|21:10:02 <CandyAss> tried everything so far like reinstalling samp, rebooting windows, rebooting the router
26.01|21:11:43 <CandyAss> stella_clarke said to have the same issue now and then, apparently it just 'went away' in a matter of days but seemingly not in my case
26.01|21:14:57 <CandyAss> so for clarification no bans have been issued to my IP, right
26.01|21:15:05 <Renegade334> None
26.01|21:15:14 <CandyAss> k
26.01|21:16:41 <Renegade334> if you have access to a vpn or whatever then feel free to use that
26.01|21:16:52 <CandyAss> okay
26.01|21:16:53 <CandyAss> i have no issues connecting to other servers, guess i'll mess around with my router when i get rly bored and maybe get it to fetch another IP from the pool
26.01|21:18:13 <Renegade334> often these things are just temporary network black holes that are created automatically by the security system
26.01|21:18:24 <Renegade334> they usually get autoremoved after a bit
26.01|21:18:44 <CandyAss> thats basically what stella said
26.01|21:22:11 <Renegade334> sorry I couldn't help you further
26.01|21:22:22 <CandyAss> thanks for trying

Is this the newest version of samp? I don't see R-4 at the top of samp window, mine looks like this San Andreas Multiplayer 0.3.7-R4
Nevermind it's visible in chat window

You should just try to change your ip. Mine does by simply unplugging main modem/router for several hours (restart or couple of minutes won't work), best at daytime when people are using internet so someone else gets that ip, at night it's bigger chance to get the same ip back when turning modem back on but it's not that simple for all internet providers I suppose.
