When I look at all my forum posts, the posts are all coming from the same group of IP addresses?

http://www.network54.com/Forum/283026/

Look at all the posts....is Newtork54 server using its own proxy serve to creat this?


Could you have a look and e mail when a reply.

Thanks in advance.

Here's your first problem,.however. You allow anonymous posting. Very bad idea.

ignore the post in the other thread.


All most all the post are from a Proxy server. The IP address varies but they are from the same source.


I am going to change the anonymous posting. This site is 9 years old.


Please have a look again.

Thanks it is appreciated

<p>I never heard of that company, but it appears to be an ISP in California. That means absolutely nothing, however. My ISP is in Maryland and I am in NYC. My website hosting company is in Orlando, so if you did an IP trace on my website, it would say I was in Florida. As I said, i'm in NYC. </p><p>It is possible that many of your visitors are from California, or use that ISP. I don't think there's anything sinister going on. The N54 guys have their hands full with trying to get V3 running and keeping these forums up and running. I really don't think they have time to run up your page views just to make you complain. It is in no one's best interest for that to happen.</p>

I know that the posts are not coming from Network54 but from other people. It is just that all the IP addresses are from the service provider of network 54.


People are complaining on my site about this. This is also a Ontario Hockey Forum. I do get a lot of traffic on the site but not everyone is from the United States!

This is a Network 54 issue. Could you please inform Network 54 about this. Thanks.

that it is just your forum where this is happening. I visit several N54 forums, I am a moderator at most of them, and I checked the IP addresses. Your forum is the only one that sems to be grouping IP addresses to the same server.

"Odd" just sounds like some forum moderator and, trust me here, do not engage some of these folk. Here are some chats that loop me to the login:

http://www.network54.com/Chat/37703
http://www.network54.com/Chat/95010
http://www.network54.com/Chat/121112
http://www.network54.com/Chat/113145
http://www.network54.com/Chat/113144
http://www.network54.com/Chat/130001
http://www.network54.com/Chat/yourzipcodehere.

Except for:http://www.network54.com/Chat/113144. Which Kay9 owns. Oh and this morning, US Eastern Chesapeake Time! My Network54 113144 # today is: 199.27.130.197 .

This is so, uh, unique! Ping that IP and you will electronically live in California for a nanosecond. Which, today, I would not want because it is a very perfect day right here.

Did I say thank you again for checking this stuff out? If I did then, well, thank you one more time for looking at the unique side of life. It is a different place that is well worth the ride.

Phhh sure someone is bound to call you "odd" every now and then. Gently correct them. Like this.

<p>Networ54 has begun using Cloudflare, which is a firewall, of sorts, for web traffic. So yes, all of the posts will be filtered through a series of IP addresses belonging to Cloudflare.</p><p>http://www.cloudflare.com/overview.html</p>
