Big Problem
« on: May 27, 2014, 03:35:52 PM »
Hi,

I just got done uprooting a virus that the guy who helped me install my new speakers in my laptop accidentally put in my computer when he was using some bad software to make a fake driver for the sound device.

anyways the virus completely destroyed Winsock and winsock2, I had a heck of a time figuring out how to fix winsock.

anyways now I'm able to get online again and such then titan network forum promptly tells me I have been banned because my ISP has too many spammers..... of course it does I'm in china.

please help. (is using temporary VPN to get on here)
There is always another way. But it might not work exactly like you may desire.

A wise old rabbit once told me "Never give-up!, Trust your instincts!" granted the advice at the time led me on a tripped-out voyage out of an asteroid belt, but hey it was more impressive than a bunch of rocks and space monkies.

No no, that's your private address.  Go to this site and tell me what is next to the "Your IP address is" label at the top.

very well, 111.174.59.18

I thought IPCONFIG reported it, seems it doesn't.

thanks for the help with this.

Correct, you are no longer on the spam server. We're unlikely to ever get rid of that because it really does host *that many* spammers. Looking over our logs, I see a hit every couple days blocked by it (not including your recent hammering :p )

heh, yeah, I was desperate to get into my account for a PM I was expecting. didn't want to share my account password with a proxy server though.

just out of curiosity, it's obvious the spam server is here in china, so just what would they want to spam titan network with every 2 days? perfect world entertainment ads for CO?

Probably the usual gibberish with links you see when a spambot makes it through a forum's filters. I suspect PWE would like to at least try to look like a good company.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.
