A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, 602p. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Chris Troutman (talk) 16:16, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

Caught by an open proxy block but this host or IP is not an open proxy. For about a week there I had a configuration issue with a personal VPN/proxy that allowed public access. I have corrected this issue, resolving the problem. Requesting unblock. 602p (talk) 03:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Accept reason:

I can find no evidence that the IP address has served as an open proxy since 21 February. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 14:35, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Considering you're not blocked directly, what's the block message you're seeing? PhilKnight (talk) 15:27, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Hello 602p. Unless you let us know the IP, there is no action that regular admins can take to assist you. It might also help if you could say more about the VPN issue. You made quite a few edits in 2014. Were you able to make those edits from your current IP? EdJohnston (talk) 04:38, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • When I try to edit a page, I see that 67.220.22.228 has been blocked by ProcSee. My IP has changed since 2014 (home IP.) I have a VPN/Proxy setup for personal use while out and about. I had a router config problem that allowed unauthenticated access to my proxy (it normally requires credentials.) Again, my proxy is only used personally, so I guess I'm looking for an IP unblock. 602p (talk) 17:47, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • This spam report shows that your IP has been used as recently as 20 February for spamming forum posts to Wordpress sites. Are you sure you have fixed the problem which permitted outside access to the IP? EdJohnston (talk) 18:10, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Yep! I was accidentally forwarding traffic that did not apply to a firewall rule to my server, instead of rejecting it. Now that I fixed that, the only way to use the proxy would be to go though my VPN, which is fully locked down. Sorry about that folks :( 602p (talk) 18:20, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • I submitted a request at WP:OP to have this checked out. While you are waiting, you may be able to edit Wikipedia using any other IP you have access to. EdJohnston (talk) 21:24, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks! 602p (talk) 23:07, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
