Logging On From Overseas

Recommended Posts

Currently in Buenos Aires for a few months.  I couldn’t log on over the weekend.  I believe the site was upgraded on Friday?.  Eventually tried logging on through my VPN linked to the UK which self evidently worked.  Are other overseas users having the same problem?.  Also a question to Mods, was this a deliberate change or perhaps a problem you’re  unaware of?

It was only four days but delighted that normal OTIB service has resumed. Was unaware that the site was going to be unavailable. The sense of loss was a real concern!

Sorry yes, new firewall was what went in on Friday and it was set to only allow UK traffic. Have given it a good slap now and put in trusted countries mode. Unfortunately this includes Wales.

Yes i had the same problem on Saturday and Sunday and had to use my VPN, however today all is OK on the usual proxy, It must have been something to do with the upgrade.

Wasn't an upgrade as such.. well it was, but the firewall we use. Unfortunately it was set to UK traffic only, not knowingly set by me so apologies to all.

Members of the Scandinavian branch thought I had us all banned  😬

That genuinely made me laugh. Let’s be honest...even you thought it was 50/50!

But glad to see you all back.

Couldn't get on from Friday night until this morning. Echo what others have said about the sense of loss/panic/existential despair. Got back on expecting to find lots of talk about the downtime, but nothing, so thought it was just me. I'm comforted that others were similarly inconvenienced!

But not Thailand? I still can't access the site unless via a VPN.

Any chance of Thailand being added as a trusted country? I know I'm not the only City fan out here.

Thank you.

I've downloaded Opera (VPN included) purely to view OTIB, so I can read the site now but was flummoxed for several days.

I've just joined and hopefully I'll get no issues. I have been living in Australia for nearly 30 years and always remember watching city in the 70s and 80s. Went back earlier in the year and managed to get one home game in

I've been in India a fair bit recently and it's not working over there. I used to spend a fair amount of Turkmenistan and failed to get access, so if you could sort out their country-wide censorship issues that would be good.
