bogon troubles - bad behavior 2 problem?


anyone experiencing trouble with bogon ip space or former bogon ip space and users having trouble viewing your GL sites?

I am not 100% sure if it's a plugin or not, but I suspect it's Bad Behavior2 causing the issue. Anyone know if BB2 has bogon filtering?

I'll be home later where I can login and check more indepth.




Per this website, showing the responses to BB2:


We see that the info contained in the error the user experienced is located on that page.

"An invalid request was received from your browser. This may be caused by a malfunctioning proxy server or browser privacy software."

Furthermore, we have turned BB2 off in GL plugins, yet, the person seems to still be experiencing the same error of not being able to view the site (banned per BB2?).

First, how to clear the ban, even if BB2 is disabled?

Second, how to turn off BB2's ability to block browsers not presenting a valid http referrer?

If you have a problem specific to Bad Behavior, please contact the author of the original WordPress plugin.

The Geeklog integration requires an additional line in lib-common.php and as long as that line is there, BB is not disabled. Disabling the plugin will only disable the admin backend.
