Blocked access to the OSM wiki according to the location

severin
Hi,

Currently, some OSM contributors from DRC cannot create accounts or edit the OSM wiki, getting thise message: " Your IP address is listed as an open proxy in the DNSBL used by OpenStreetMap Wiki. You cannot create an account. "

In the past, contributors from other African countries also face the same issue. Do these contributors need to set a proxy on their computer, considering their Internet provider use an open proxy?

Sincerely,

Severin

Bonjour Severin,

j'ignore si t'es trompé de langue ou de ml :)
configurer un proxy sur son ordi ne change rien si leur fai a un proxy
ouvert dont l'utilisation est forcée.
le mieux est qu'ils contactent leur fai pour demander la résolution du
problème de fond : la sécurisation du proxy ouvert chez le fai.

PS: c'est quel fai ? généralement les proxy ouvert sont bien + lié à un
pc infecté qu'à un fai négligeant

Cordialement,
Marc
