(sorry for my bad english)
I tried to write a review but, after the login, it appears this error:

Error
Security checks determined you may be using an IP masking service or VPN. To continue, you need a different Internet connection.

I don't mask the IP or using a VPN

The validation is finding an issue. It could be related to your IP or our local network (beyond your personal connection).

Please, try to submit the review from a different location.

Best regards

Hi,

We are in the process of the redesigning the current security checks, originally implemented on JED.

In the meantime, to clarify how to overcome the current limitations. This is the updated message:

Security checks determined you may be using an IP masking service, a VPN or a server is actively running on your desktop IP. To continue, you need a different Internet connection.

So, if you find the validation issue, please check the following points on your side:

  • You may be using an IP masking service
  • A VPN
  • A server is actively running on your desktop IP

Best Regards

What is being validated and why? I'm not running an IP masking service such as Tor or anything else. I'm not running over a VPN. I'm running Windows 7 Professional and no server is actively running on my desktop IP. If you're detecting something it's a false positive. Fix your detection program, it's faulty.

Thanks for your feedback. We are reviewing the validation in the light of the new use cases.

I'm updating this ticket as soon as we have news.

Same issue here. I'm trying to write a review from within our company's lan. No VPN, no IP masiking of any kind and no server running on my pc. This check is definetely faulty and annoying too.

In the past weekend, the JED4 spring took place and a new validation is in the works to replace the current system.
