I can't post

Post by Montana » Mon Oct 03, 2016 9:44 am

Well I can post, but it takes over a minute and times out every time, I then reload the page and the post is there even though the text is still in the dialogue box.

I can zip between pages easily but it takes minutes to post so I can't really comment on everyone's posts otherwise it would take me hours. I thought maybe it was a home internet problem but it is still doing the same for me at work on University super speed :( any help would be appreciated.

IT IS WORKING ULTRA FAST FROM ATLANTA TOO.

Are there any other UK users that are having these issues?

The problems start when I try to log in, it just times out. It says 'establishing a secure connection' then twirls for a minute then times out. If you then use the back key you find it has done it anyway. I can zip around the forum really fast unless I want to post or log in :( still the same this morning, It started on Sunday, Saturday was fine.

I received a reply from Network Solutions. There is something blocking the request to post between your computer and the Network solutions host. They say this is usually because the site has been blacklisted as spam by your provider or whatever.

I need the following information to go any further if you are still having the issue:

1) create the problem

2) immediately go to http://whatismyipaddress.com and copy your IP address into a word document

3) Run a Trace Route from your computer and copy and paste the resulting text

A trace route is ran from a Windows command prompt by

a) Open the Start menu.
b) Click on Run.
c) Type cmd and then press the OK button to open a command prompt.
At the prompt, type tracert solarchatforum.com and press the Enter key.
To copy the output, right-click anywhere in the window and select Mark .

copy the results into the word document, save it and send it to me on Facebook or to my email.


I am very sorry for the problem. I am doing everything I can to fix it. Now that we are on Network Solutions I have to call them and wait for a response from their tech team.
