View Full Version : Proxies Disabled

09-23-2011, 12:26 PM
I have disabled http forwarded requests/proxies from accessing our server. If anyone was using a proxy to get around work-blocking or for some other legitimate reason contact me and I'll set up an IP exception for you.

I;m just curious, how does a proxy work?

It's basically a middleman that forwards your http request inputs to your intended destination and then retrieves and forwards the responses back to you. The purpose is to conceal your IP address. If you want more details, I refer you to my favorite educational resource, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server

My office recently blocked ogboards.com. I am pretty sure they did anyway. I am getting a 403 error message when trying to get on. Can you all help me with a proxy? I have no idea how to set it up. Thanks.

Take a screenshot of the error message you are getting and send it to the webmaster@ogboards.com account.

We are aware certain posters are having issues connecting from work. Please PM me your IP address, found here http://www.whatismyip.com/ so I can set up an exception for you.
