Is your VPN IP blocking you from websites?

Post by MSI »

Today finally realized an occasional issue i have on my computer:
  • Sometimes i could not access my wesbite and/or the host server (to report tech support issue) and/or certain websites from my computer

Normally I simply rebooted and voila! could access
Today i decided needed to get to the bottom of things
What was it?
  • I use McAffe which adds a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
    i used to use on occasion another VPN software but once added to McAffee i simply used theirs

    the issue occurs because your computer is then seen as a NEW IP!
    which IF others are using that same IP and/or have used that IP in the past and for some reason the IP is blocked by certain sites:
    SO ARE YOU BLOCKED!!
main point of this post is a warning that
  • IF you can't access only certain websites
    it MIGHT BE YOUR VPN IP!!
