Can't connect to Musicbrainz.org website and Picard doesn't check music on home network

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 99.98.238.228. Thanks!

Hi,

Can you check the blocklist for 37.201.194.126 ?
I also cannot connect to musicbrainz.org.

Thanks a lot!

@eriji @WillyWhale your IPs were in the QNAP list, now removed, you should now have access to all our services. Sorry for the inconvenience.

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: 103.181.58.21

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 108.70.51.69?

Regards,
Jason

I’m in! :partying_face: 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.
