I believe my IP has been banned or blacklisted, could somebody check for me?

I have used Picard in the past on my library, it has been at least a couple years since I have used picard.

It seems my IP is banned, currently I can access musicbrainz.org from my moms house which is a few blocks away from my house, but I cannot access it at home.

Please send me a PM or reply to this post and I can PM you my home IP address.

I really appreciate any help with this, thank you.

Thanks, I do not have a QNAP device, my NAS is just an ubuntu server with mdadm. I hope @Zas will still be able to help.

I just found #musicbrainz on irc, and sent zas a message there :slight_smile:

It seems my home’s IP address has been blocked by musicbrainz as well. Can you unblock my IP address? I’m using Picard/MP3Tag infrequently, so I must have some background service on a server that has caused the issue. I’ll try and do some digging to figure this out . . . my IP address:


It appears this IP isn’t blocked on our side. What happens exactly? Can you ping (or even better traceroute)

Thanks for checking, Zas.

Yep - it looks like traffic stops at my gateway - I’ll dig into the router and see what’s going on there. Thanks so much!!
