Blocked access

I recently went on holiday to Budapest, Hungary for a week. One night in my hotel armed with my laptop, speedy interent access and a horny GF, decided to try and log into my 21sextury account only to be told that access was blocked from my IP. I didnt even get as far as the login page the whole site was blocked. Fair enough I thought, a lot of the models are Hungarian so they want to stop family / friends from recognizing them. So I emailed their support asking for my IP address to be allowed access or at least to only block sites that feature primarily Hungarian models. I didnt even get a reply to my email, thanks "support" for doing your job. So thats 1/4 of my months membership in the toilet, had to resort to tube sites because my legally purchased membership was useless :(

Sevrin (6) I doubt they'll unblock the hotel's IP, since that would defeat the purpose of blocking Hungarian nationals. All users at the hotel share the same external IP. My favourite cam site does the same type of national blocking, but they do it model by model.

But yeah, they could have answered your email. :/

Monahan (40) Had the same problem 2 weeks ago in a small but upscale hotel in Melbourne Australia. I got access from a big chain hotel in Sydney but at a sluggishly slow speed. But when I went on to Melbourne, I was able to access my email and basic g-rated sites but was unable to access my favorite porn sites.

I didn't follow up with the hotel so I don't know if it's selective blocking or something else.

Interestingly, however, I had superb access and speeds during a short stay in Singapore.

It would be interesting to see a survey of access issues like I experienced done by someone who is more technology savvy than I am.

RustyJ (145) 21Sextury not answering you is bad business practice, no doubt about it.

However, the issue you had, I wonder what was the real cause. Could it be that the hotel had requested blocking? I know, it sounds crazy. Well, you want to hear real crazy? I read in news that civil servants in Sweden aren't allowed to stay in hotels where pay porn channels are offered. Of course that doesn't sound like Hungary...

The hotel was not blocking access, the error message was specifc to 21sextury and had instructions to email them with the error details, which I did :)

I guess in hindsight, I may not have been blocked because I was in Hungary; although that was a reasonable assumption; I may have been blocked because I had accessed the site in Prague, Bratislava and Budapest all in the space of 1 week. That said, I do remember getting blocked for accessing the site from various different IP addresses before but that time I was automatically emailed a new password.

Either way, their support is a joke, I was unable to access what I had paid for and had to resort to less than totally legal methods to get my porno fix. No wonder so many people pirate their stuff when barriers are put up to stop you accessing your legally paid for material :(

Its fair enough that they would not want to allow access to the whole hotel IP range but they could have allowed my username and password to login and view what I had paid for. I would be simple enough to redirect users in blocked countries to a very simple login page without any graphics or possibility to signup. If the user already has a account they can login, if not they cant do anything and the identity of the models is still protected.

Sevrin (6) REPLY TO #5 - BadMrFrosty :

The hotel will not typically have a range of IPs for guests. The hotel likely has a single external IP that's part of a pool assigned to the hotel's ISP. Internally, the hotel's router will use a protocol known as DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) to assign IPs that look like 192.168.X.X on a local network, whether you are using wireless or wired access, the same way your router does at home. If you open a DOS window and type in "ipconfig /all", you will be able to see your local IP, which is invisible to anyone beyond the hotel's router.

If an IP is blocked, for whatever reason, all traffic from that IP is completely blocked. You won't even get as far as being able to input your user name, so the site isn't blocking you personally. It won't have anything to do with you having accessed the site from other locations.

That doesn't excuse 21Sex for having ignored your email, especially if you used the email account with which you subscribed.

I know how IP technology works but cheers :)

What I was saying is, they could have implemented more intelligent country blocking by allowing people who have already paid for access to log in and access the already restricted members area. By doing this in combination with blocking signups from Hungary they would have achieved the same result without pissing me off :)
