    Hi

    I was a regular reader on this site until a few weeks ago when i could no longer access it. I keep getting a "Forbidden 403 error. You dont have permission to access this server". I am assuming it is something on the server side which is causing this by blocking my particular or a range of particualr ip addresses. I am typing this from a different ip address and have no problem accessing it. The ip address which is having this issue starts with 196.209. Please let me know if you can assist with this.
    Thanks

    As far as I can tell, we are not blocking that IP range. I'll email you to see how we can fix this...

    Hi Amin

    Your fix for the above problem worked for a few weeks, but has now stopped again (a few weeks ago).

    Can you assist?

    Thanks

    For future referense: Also check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) if the site in question hasn't listed your IP(range) on their side. ;)
