[Plugin - SABRE] Error: Banned IP Address (2 posts)

    Using the SABRE plug in to guard against phony registration web-poo. I activate and set up and Log out. Register brings up the special SABRE log-in panel with Captcha or Math test - all looks fine. Enter a new "fake" user, email add and password/confirm to test. And I wind up with an "Error: Banned IP Address" (Red outlined box with pink background) at the top of the special SABRE log-in box which still contains the dummy data I'm testing with. Cleared IE cache, refreshed and retry. Error: Banned IP Address...

    What possible reason could there be for a Banned IP Address on this thing? I haven't knowingly banned any IPs - the site is actually hosted in another city on a pro server. Already registered users are logging in and out just fine.

    Sure would like some help with this, please?

    Thanks to Didier for pointing out that my IP Address is on a Banned range at SpamHaus.org. So, I ran the removal at SpamHaus and now it all is working great.

    Issue is resolved.
