Hey Guys

It appears the previous owners of my IP address dabled in the "dark side" :rotfl: Problem is that my mates and I try to access the IP address which no longer has any porn on it and it gets wacked by our corporate web walls! Obviously, we can access no problem from home.

Is there an internet regulator that can get this change of ownership (and content!) pushed out to the companies that update webwall software?


Thanks in advance for your help :thumbsup:

You will have to contact the developers / owners of web wall and request that your address is removed from their lists. Assuming your company takes updated lists then sometime later you will get access again. Assuming that some other list doesnt disable you.

I thought as much but i rather hoped there was a central organisation that managed them all. :(


Thanks for the info though!
 
My webmail is at a special port address which my current contract employer's Finjan system won't allow to access....I tend to use Megaproxy to have my browser within a browser to bypass the corporate security :)

failing that, demand that they remove your sites address from their servers as its copyrighted by you :smashin:

Could you not just request a new IP address?
i don't know? :confused:

Is that something my webhost company is likely to do?
 
If you have a dedicated IP address then they should be able to do that quite easily....

Alternative you may ask to be moved to another server in their hosting solution and make certain you ask for one that hasn't been used for porn or gambling or anything like that.....

Cool! Thanks for that!

I best speak to them about that asap then before my domains get registered to the ip address.
