Hi, I tried to share a link to my project page with a friend in Brazil and she got an access denied. Then I asked her to try www.lumberjocks.com and she got the same error.

The error said that this was to protect the site from cyber attacks.

Any particular reason the entire site would be blocked?

Thanks,

Bob

Better go on a technology web site for the answer but it sounds like it is on her end and probably here computer and the preferences she has set on her web browser or her ISP.

I don’t think it’s LumberJocks blocking her directly. They use Cloudfare to protect the site from attacks.

Is she at work or on a wifi network somewhere? A lot of places use URL filtering by category. Sometimes things get categorized incorrectly or falls into a category deemed like a risk to the Company

I got the same error message using a vpn service. Maybe she has one too?

Have your say...
