Opera Mini works a little differently than other browsers in that it sends all requests through a proxy server operated by Opera that optimizes returned pages for display on a mobile device.  I'm guessing that it does this on a socket rather than via an HTTP request, which would explain why Opera Mini works on Android where other browsers fail.

Opera Mini might prove to be a workaround for folks experiencing problems.  Anybody running Opera Mini on iOS?

My AT&T iPhone's IP address is 166.137.156.16 & TTF webpage now comes up as "Apache 2 Test Page" powered by Centos; prior to today, it just said that access is denied & forbidden. The only time I can connect correctly to TTF on my iPhone is when I'm connected 2 my WiFi

I ran Opera on my Motorola Q9 on Windoze CE through Verizon Wireless and it connected just fine.  Problem was that the forum was very difficult to navigate due to limitations of the phone.

Just FYI, the iOS autocowrecker wants desperately to change "Eastcheap" to "East heap."  I'd complain to Apple if I were you.  :-)

I don't much care, but I can think of some City banks that would find it pretty annoying.

That is interesting.  I'd like to see what the lagado proxy test displays for Opera.

Another port, certainly.  Actually, if the TTF server were configured to listen on some alternate port, I think the problem would go away WRT transparent proxies (this is commonly done for other protocols that ISPs like to fiddle with, like NNTP and SMTP).

Obviously, it would be better, and at least as easy, to stop needlessly discriminating against proxies in the first place.  TTF is the only public site I've ever seen do so.

I just got the iPhone 4 for 99 cents from AT&T and set it up yesterday.

No problem with using here on the TTF. Works like a charm. I was leary about migrating from my Blackberry, but the migration went very smoothly.

It depends on where you are.  Apparently, some cells go through the proxy and some don't.

The simplest solution, should you run into the problem, is probably to access TTF through any of the hundreds of free "stealth" proxies around.

for some reason i can't seem to access the forum when my phone is on 3G. it used to work before but lately i've been getting this error message (about two months ago). when i'm running off wireless i can access the site without problem. any ideas what might be the cause of this? i have an iphone 3GS and my carrier is AT&T. My ip address is 166.147.88.23, located in Honolulu, HI. Thanks!



woot! I can now access the forum again regularly through AT&T's network without using wireless!

In the short term, go through a proxy that strips the "Via" line from your request headers (there's nothing you can do about it locally).  In the long term, we need somehow to get complaints through to whoever hosts TTF.  There's no good reason for this intolerable situation to exist.

You can try complaining to your provider (AT&T, I'm guessing), but, problem is, they aren't doing anything wrong.  They're playing by the rules.

Try installing Opera Mini from the App Store (it's free) and use it to access the Forum.  Opera Mini is not affected by this problem on Android devices and should work on iOS devices as well.

The mobile Chrome also works very well, and is my default browser for basically everything.

I agree that iOS chrome is great, but it doesn't help the issue at all, unlike opera which does because it tunnels the traffic to be rendered in the cloud.

Oh that's strange. Safari doesn't work for the forums, but chrome works fine.

Switched from ATT to Verizon when we upgraded to the iphone 5 just after Christmas and it appears that I can access the forum while using cellular data now.

Another cheap work around if you're still not able to get here on your smart phones:
On your smart phone, mine is iphone4 with safari for browser,
Google a key phrase that will get you a post from the TTF, and bookmark it.
You can now use this bookmark as the front door to TTF.

I'm pretty sure that won't work for the people that are having the AT&T proxy issue.

MyBad. I forgot that I was wifi connected when I revisited the issue with my iPhone. It worked for me when I was using a BlackBerry everywhere. At least I can remember when to put my mpc on the trombone. (still)

Ok, I just got the iPhone 6+, and still use the att for my carrier, and I'm not using the wifi this time, and it is working. Maybe the iPhone 6 will work others that have been having problems.

It looks as though TTF has finally stopped turning away folks with "Via" fields in the request headers.  Hopefully, that's the end of it.
