If you are one of those unfortunate souls whose smartphone is no longer connecting to TTF, please do the following.

1.  Visit http://www.whatsmyip.org/ and discover what IP your device is broadcasting, and,
2.  Post a reply in this topic with what that IP is.

This will assist me in tracking down the issue.

I thought so.

However, a lookup on your IP is...interesting.

I'll ask my teenage son if he knows what you want, b/c i have no idea.

pm with instructions if you would like, otherwise......

the only time I ever got TTF on my phone was via the internet and the pages were too big to read.

Richard,

I have a BlackBerry Curve.  My provider is Verizon and the query you requested says 68.171.235.248

I'm located in Montgomery, Alabama.   :)

And thanks for working to find a solution for this.  I know it's probably a frustrating problem to try to track down.

I don't know if it's a connected problem, but I can no longer access TTF from my works computer. Richard, I think you have details of this.

Hey, look at that. My "smart" phone no longer connects to the forum.  :(

What's My IP gives me a blank square as my IP, but other sites indicates 166.216.224.9 and 166.216.224.15.

Just let me know if anything else is needed!

POS Motorola on AT&T in CA, btw.

TTF works just fine on my cellphone (Nokia) here in Oz, on IP address 203.202.52.112.

However, like RHM, I can't access it at work - I get a 403 error. I'm not at work now, so can't give you the IP address at work.

I don't know if it's connected, but I think it's been like that since that DNS issue a while back. Could it be some weird DNS propagation thing on services that use private DNS servers? I know BlackBerry uses it's own infrastructure / proxy for surfing, for example, rather than the ones maintained by the cellco/ISP. Similarly at work, where out IT dept has their own DNS servers.

I also note that, when at work, if I type the TTF URL I get a 403, but if I enter the IP address (216.139.89.3) I get a database error (which I also get at home), which indicates they are pointing at different things.

Disclaimer: I barely know what I am talking about, so that last bit might be complete gibberish.


Supplementary question: Why isn't it possible to access the TTF using the IP address, rather than the URL? Is it because of some need to parse the http request to discover which database to connect to?
If it were possible to get to TTF from the IP address, it might work as a work-around for people having connection issues - for example to default to the TTF database in the absence of a URL.

I still remember the DNS issue. It actually occurred approximately a day (maybe two) after my BlackBerry gave up the TTF. (It continues not to function) The Dept. Veteran's Affairs computers also give the same error. incidentally, both the BlackBerry and the VA System are on proxy servers. My home computer is not. I too suspect that there is a problem with proxy server handling. I sure wish I had the access I used to have. You would think that it wouldn't be that big a problem for someone with access to the forum system to correct but then,  Don't know
