Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    An Arrser who's presently working in Chad can only log on if he gets to what passes for a town.

    It seems the satellite link at their desert camp is routed through Peking and he has vokoll luck getting onto Arrse using those means. Have these IPs been blocked & if so what's the drill for him to get back onto this site ?
     
  2. Can you see if you can find the drill rig we lost in Lake Chad please
     
  3. He'll probably have to use a proxy server.

    China is blocked yes. It's an attempt to limit the number of spam users and general dodgy goings on. I can whitelist IP addresses, so if you know anyone like this who has a fixed IP address or can specify their possible range then I can open a hole in the defences for them. Otherwise I would suggest using a proxy service, which will also allow the use of iPlayer and other limited sites, eg:

    Proxy & VPN Services | HideMyNet.com
