I can disable that. But I guess the question is, why is it not getting your password correct
Dunno. Happens about once a month.
Baffles me. But no biggy

For some reason BitNinja is greylisting the IP addresses. It appears that the host can't disable this. Question is, what's occurring with the IP addresses? See my post earlier. I wonder if there's a flaky broadband/phone signal at the other end that keeps retrying due to corrupted signal...or summink.

@cheb has this got worse since you moved? As asked earlier are you on BB or phone signal?

It's not got worse since I moved. Previous address was BT broadband FTC, copper to the house, here is EE 4G.

I thought I said that up there^.

As I say, it only happens when I browsing here, I've never had it happen anywhere else.

It's no real problem, I just log out and then log back in a bit later.

Is there a way of tracing my page request from my desktop through all the various servers (nodes?) to that request landing on RTTL? I know of ping tracing but not much more than that.

That's a technical question rather than something I'm asking you to do.

I get something similar to that when using a VPN to connect using Surfshark to a server in Austria (or elsewhere) and then try to do a Google search. It gets very huffy and throws Captchas at me. No problem when I connect without using Surfshark VPN.

I use Surfshark to connect via a VPN to an Austrian server that has 'free to air' MotoGP, WSBK and F1. The VPN hides my country of origin and I can stream all the MotoGP/WSBK rounds. Simples.

I use a VPN for various reasons, some geographical and some because when off island I tend to use public networks. It was suggested by a mate who I trust about these things that a VPN is A Good Thing. It's a habit I've got into.

I used to help said mate with the non technical side of the islands wide intranet he ran.

As you both seem to use a VPN and we don't have a pictorial captcha, then maybe it's related to VPN software?

Without knowing the ins and outs of cheb's set up, I'd suggest disabling the VPN and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't at least you know the VPN isn't causing the issue.
