I have a QNAP NAS and didn’t know about the blocked IP addresses until recently. I uninstalled Music Station a couple of years ago, but I must have been banned before I did that. I’m on the current QTS version, and do not use any of the QNAP multimedia programs. My IP is 184.108.40.206. Thanks!
Can you check the blocklist for 220.127.116.11 ?
I also cannot connect to musicbrainz.org.
Thanks a lot!
thanks a lot for the quick solution!
Thank you so much! I’m sorry my NAS was part of the problem.

Hi. I am unable to access Musicbrainz or use Picard since past few days. I believe my IP address is also blacklisted. But I switched off my router at night for an IP address refresh. I have a new IP address now, but I am still unable to access the services except by going on my mobile phone data.
I don’t understand what these QNAP services or devices are. The only change I’ve had in the past month in my household is install iTunes for my new iPhone and getting a new Wi-Fi router.
@LWTBP can you provide your IP address so I can check?
My IP address: 18.104.22.168
The IP you recently got was probably used by bad guys few days ago and was temporarily listed in public blacklists. That’s unrelated to QNAP devices for once.
I refreshed our lists and it was removed, so you should now be able to access all our services. Sorry for the inconvenience.
@Zas It’s working now. Thank you so much.
What can we do to prevent this in the future?
Just read this. No problem. I appreciate the prompt help.
Not much, that’s just bad luck in this case. Though you can always contact me if it happens again, we’ll advise.
Hi - I think my IP is also blocked.
Send me your IP to support at metabrainz.org so I can have a look. Thanks.
HI Zas. I have a QNAP NAS and believe I’ve also been blocked. Could you check 22.214.171.124?
I’m in! Very much appreciated.
edit: Well, I was. Did I get blacklisted again? Just updated the firmware on my NAS 2 days ago, so it shouldn’t be spamming your server anymore.
edit 2: I just disabled the built-in “Music Station” app, which has apparently been causing the issue.
I whitelisted your IP, so you should now have access again.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
