The forum is giving me a time out error when I try to access it without a VPN

I went into a dilemma a few hours ago, I couldn’t access the forum to respond to the post that talks about unifying Linux distros, but is titled “Making a manjaro based OS”.

I had to enable my VPN to get it working again, has anyone faced the same issue?
I tried clearing all’s cache, but that didn’t help.

This is the error I’m getting:

Sound like geo-blocking. If it works with a VPN, it’s most probably your ISP’s fault, whether it is deliberate or not.

Try re-connecting and trying again.

Your issue could be DNS related - in the sense your vpn service is not resetting the resolv.conf correct after disconnect.


That would give me a “surf saftey” error, got blocked for some weird

But now it’s working again, so maybe the servers I was trying to access at the time were busy :man_shrugging:
