    WTF 😄


  • Well, i solved the main problem with switching from eth0:0 to eth0 with my first ipv4.
    At home i can access normaly the forum on ip1:4567 but i've the same problem than yesterday for the proxyfi thing.
    I've tested lighttpd & nginx for proxyfi... don't work.

    I can access to the main page but i can't do anything.. It said "connection lose"..

    Have you any idea ??


  • I can browse your website fine.

  • Thank you.
    Well my problem now is the fucking proxy @ work 😕

    edit: Erm.. Why i can access this forum nice and can't use mine correctly ?! I don't get it.
    edit2 : Can you navigate through the forum ? I can access main page too. But can't use functionnalities.. Like connect, post, see a thread, etc


  • @XaT

    Well, I just did the whole 9 yards on your site - loaded the main, category and thread pages, and even created an account and replied to a topic. All from Chromium on Linux.

    Edit: I up-voted the topic that I replied to

  • Thanks !
    I got your messages.
    I can't understand. Now i can access my forum. But all others computers @ work can't ! WTF >_<


  • My conf@nginx

    server {
        listen 80;
        location / {
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
            proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;
            proxy_redirect off;
            # Socket.IO Support
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
  • @XaT

    So the problem is clearly not with your site, but something to do with your work computers. Perhaps computers at your job are being blocked from accessing certain sites.

  • This is strange. Why for 10mn i got access to my forum and now it's gone... 😕

    And WHY i can access to this forum and not to mine !!


  • Possibly your ISP is blocking websocket connections from your country, but not the US? 😕

  • Hmmm, weird. Why block "country websocket" and let open for US ? :d
    I'll try to find a french NodeBB forum.

    Do you use nginx for this forum ? Can i get the conf ?


  • @XaT We use the same configuration as that posted on our wiki 🙂

  • @XaT

    Since you workplace is the only place it does not work, I doubt that WebSocket is blocked in your country. Try WebSocket Test from a browser at work and see what you get.

  • Thank for the URL! Why i didn't think about it before...
    Yeah Websocket is not supported @ work, might be an old proxy running.

    I found why this forum working and not mine : https.

    So i've to host my forum on https@ssl
