Unable to link to REF 001 C via Pi-Star. IP blocked?

Post by KB2NWQ » Fri Jun 05, 2020 3:46 am

Hi

I recently setup a DV Switch Raspberry Pi server and ever since, I'm unable to link REF 001 C via my Pi-Star hotspot. I can link to any other reflector, but not REF 001 C. Someone on 030 C told me that it's possible that my IP has been blocked since I probably used both my Pi-Star and DV Switch server on 001 C at the same time. I didn't realize that was an issue. I've decided to abandon DV Switch to avoid any further issues. With that said, any ideas on how to resolve this? Is there a way to verify my IP being banned?

Is it possible that it's an issue with my Pi-Star?

Is it possible to use two hotspots as long as the unused one is powered down or not on the same reflector? Any ideas?

Thanks,

George

You'll need to make peace with the dplus guys who run 001 if your blocked there no amount of fudging with pistar will get you back in.

They've put out several warnings, across the past month. as their systems are being overwhelmed with the amount of connections they're seeing. anyone running with more than one simultaneous connection will be blocked.

It's also in their requests that users don't cross link the busier reflectors e.g.. 001c 030c etc. so your DVswitch install might be another reason why your banned.

Hi,

How do I get a message to them? Email? Web page. I can't find anything myself. Thanks.

Update. If I use a VPN, I’m able to connect to 001C. I’m currently using a DVMEGA DVStick 30 on a PC and if I connect via a VPN I can connect. If I turn off the VPN I’m unable to connect. My IP is definitely blocked, but I can’t figure out how to contact the reflector admin folks to ask how to get access again. If someone has an email or contact info, please let me know. Thanks.

I have AT&T fiber and they won't change my IP address. I wish they would, but not an option.
