Banned from using website?

Post by odecif » Fri Jun 17, 2022 2:57 am

Hi! I tried to reach out to someone on the IRC but it seems that no-one who could help was online.

I believe that my public IP-address has been blocked by some firewall or something at winehq because every time I try to access it from my network (with different devices) I get a "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" in the browser. I think that this happened when I tried to perform "git clone https://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git" which I, in hindsight, realized was faulty.

Could someone please help investigate this? I kinda wanna keep contributing here.

You obviously had no problem posting this. Perhaps it was just a transient connection problem.

I posted that message using my phone on the 4G-network and not my home network. However you are correct in it being transitory since I am now able to connect again after approx 24h. I suppose a temporary automatic ban lasts about 1 day on winehq.org...

yeah, apparently it's intentional: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50866

an admin(?) explains there that they have fail2ban configured to issue a 24 hour IP ban if you attempt a request that results in a 403 FORBIDDEN
