Re: Question About IP Ban with no reason.

Those blacklists are specific to mail server to mail server communication -- you can safely ignore listings there.

Re: connecting from public internet

Ah, when you said "firewall" I thought you were referring to your hardware firewall, not your computer firewall.

You would need to have a rule on the public facing hardware firewall that routes traffic for that port to your specific machine. If you're on a college campus that won't happen.

Re: connecting from public internet

If you've mapped port 8093 traffic from your public IP address on your firewall to the internal IP address of your system you would need to provide people: http://{public-ip-address}:8093/apex

Re: What information can a forum see other than ip address?

Forums only have your IP address and the information you give them (username, email, password) and the cookie(s) they place.

The tools I mention, and others, help to gain additional insights based on IP address, username, and email.

Tools like this site, StopForumSpam, etc.

You are correct, if you leave the forum and then turn off the VPN or otherwise change your IP address they won't see that.

Re: What information can a forum see other than ip address?

Most platforms only track IP address, username, and email address.

Moderators may be using additional tools to review users before approving them but really only start with the information above.

Could be that they don't approve users in certain countries, etc.

Re: What information can a forum see other than ip address?

It's likely that you are being rejected *because* you are trying to hide your IP address. Proxies, Tor, and VPNs IP are often easy to identify.

Some forum admins are very strict as to who they allow to post to this forums and would rather choose to block too many new accounts than too few.

Re: Hacked from an IP address

See https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/112.213.143.93

Don't see anything out of the ordinary that would indicate a VPN, proxy, compromised machine, or something like that.
