Default Feedback on why the forum is having issues.

Toma here, posting with an alt as I can't log in.

I have some feedback on why some of the issues we are having are cropping up. I may not be 100% on as I have zero access to anything at viz but I found a strange hint.

When I failed to log in I got the following message in my email:

Quote:
Dear Toma RNK,

Someone has tried to log into your account on Naruto Discussion Forum with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 10.245.201.79

All the best,
Naruto Discussion Forum
Note the IP address. Now read up on private IP ranges. I'd post a link but cannot with this account.


10.ANYTHING is a private IP address I am trying to log in from. This means that apparently my computer is inside the viz network. As I am on the other side of the country and using public web forms and not actively hacking viz, this means your systems are confused.

My guess is that in an effort to prevent people from getting lost you have some sort of redirect from naruto.viz.com/forum to forum.naruto.viz.com and for some insane reason you are bouncing all requests through your internal network.

The first thing I would do to troubleshoot is put up a page at naruto.viz.com/forum that says "WE MOVED, CLICK HERE TO GO TO OUR NEW HOME." Then turn off your redirect.

Again, I have no real knowledge of your network, how much server resources you are paying amazon to host, or anything like that, but the redirect should be looked at cause internal IP addresses in failed login emails are sketchy, and it would also explain why every login attempt gets flagged as 5 login failures.

Rice knows my cell if I can be of further assistance.

Yep, I got the same message Toma did. No idea why Viz would have all traffic rerouted through an internal private IP (I would highly recommend snipping out the IP btw, just in case )

This thing needs to be resolved before the sweat reaches my anus. I'm terrible at making alts!

An internal address like that wouldn't help most people due to how firewalls, NATing, and public ip addresses work. Leaving it public for viz to see vastly outweighs any security risks by leaving it up.

Viz can edit it if they want/are able.

You getting the same exact message proves my theory though.

I got that message too. No matter how hard I try I can't log into my original account. And so I'm reduced to this.

True but it does prove that every person coming here is getting the same IP. :/

I'm going to openly admit that I'm going to farm this thread until PM's and links work on my account. I'll delete them after the crisis.

The last time the forum went to hell it dragged on for a while. Think this'll be fixed in under a week this time?
