Post by 66vairguy »

Like many I use a VPN and logging into this site is becoming a huge PITA. FIX IT.

I've been having some issues, too. Very intermittent, but the problem had gone away until recently. I also use VPN on my laptop full-time.

No issues with VPN here but I'm not on the Geek Squad either. Why would some VPN networks have issues with logging in to CF?

Some websites will block certain IP addresses used by VPN providers. I see this sometimes on certain sites. I used to have constant issues logging in to Bank of America. I would have to try a few different VPN servers to finally get in. They seemed to have stopped attempting to block VPN's. Here at CF, is doesn't seem to like the VPN server that is closest to me. If I change the server I'm connecting through, I can usually get on CF.

With all the shenanigans going on the web these days, more and more people are (wisely) using VPN and I think more websites will probably have to stop attempting to block them. I got rid of Ally Bank for that reason not too long ago.

I can’t log in here with the vpn connected. As soon as I disconnect, it’s fine.

No issues here. Using PIA. Try to connect with a different server with your provider, I occasionally have an issue with one of PIA's servers here.

I find that I have to enter my username and password twice, in rapid succcesion, for the login to actually take place. The first time, the site ignores me. The second time, it lets me in. Strange, but it works! :dontknow: By the way, I love the emojies on this site! :tongue:
