My account stopped working today.
I really don't know if it has something to do with the move of VPS1 -though from the announcement I don't understand server4 is being moved-.
The account is from server4 and it doesn't seems to be a server responding at the server4 IP 188.8.131.52
So the server is down or it has been moved or ... I don't know. It just doesn't work.
Any insight of which is the problem?
Ok I have tested in downforeveryoneorjustme and it says the server is up so then I have to guest I'm blocked on the server. And if so I don't understand why.
Your ip address was temporarily banned from the server due to a port scan detection of the firewall. The ban is supposed to last one hour.
I restarted the server, so normally you should be fine again. Of course if it detects the same thing, it will ban your ip again unfortunately. Were you maybe running some kind of script or doing some mail/ftp or other access that might have been considered a port scan?
A port scan from my ip? Obviously if you say that is because you see it on the logs and that worries me because I didn't do such a thing. Can you tell me the hour?
Shouldn't be anything wrong in the account that I know but unless I have access I can't review.
Thanks I'm going to investigate what that log exactly means.
I can confirm the IP was from my ISP. Well, that was obvious as I was the one blocked, it was my IP for sure.
I have just changed IP and no problem by now. But I can't understand what was going on from the other IP. Really the only port I have ever used on that server is the direct admin port, maybe I used FTP once but not today. And probably I hit some times a typo of the direct admin port, the direct admin with 3 numbers only instead of 4, or 2 numbers instead of 4. But a lot of attempts to different ports in less than 300s not for sure. The only possibility is if I had a tab in browser with the typo as I have closed and opened browser sometimes restoring session but anyway those would be requests to always the same closed port and if the firewall considers that as a port scan, I can only say "oh my god".
I have read of false positives from FTP clients but I haven't used FTP to that server today so I still can't figure out what happened.
Thanks a lot for your fast help. Regards.
I guess as long as your ip doesn't get blocked again, we can ignore the issue. Otherwise I'll try to check the actual connection attempts.
