    Now I can't post at all:

    Access Denied - Sucuri Website Firewall

    I still keep getting these type of notices randomly and for no rhyme or reason that I can think off, and only from this forum site.

    Most annoying.

    Other times, a reply just won't post. The reply Text window disappears but it never actually gets posted to the thread or anywhere that I have been able to see.

    Also most annoying. And both problems only happens at this mac-forum site.

    Sometimes, retrying a fair bit later sometimes works. And often, not even using the auto-saved text will work when posted.

    I don't know what version of vBulletin the site is using, but I think it has some trouble or some incorrect settings.

    This is actually a post from krs that I have been asked to post for him:


    Post now deleted!!!

    Gheese, this is getting crazy, I can't even post the text krs e-mailed me to post for him when I paste it into this post and attempt to send.

    When doing so, all I get is the stupid access denigned page below:

    I'm getting exactly the same issues as Patrick
    Indicated that by marking his comments in italics.

    And I just got off the phone with my ISP 2nd level tech support giving them heck about their firewall.
    But now, with Patrick having identical problems, I find out it's not my ISP at all but rather some firewall this forum seems to subscribe to - or maybe the host.

    I just tried posting my reply to Jake's comments in post #30, but no luck.
    Might as well quit until this issue gets resolved.

    Yes....it almost seems as if that firewall somehow "thinks" there is an embedded SQL database if the post is more than just a couple of lines.
    But it's definitely a new issue - I have posted more than just two or three lines before and some members have posted much more

    I'll try to post my reply to your comments, Jake, in little chucnk - let's see if that works.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Part 1:
    All right - let me take one thing at a time

    The difference between what happens with a second post and edit is that edit doesn't have the divider where the merged posts do. It's pretty apparent it is a later post merged.
    Well, on my monitor, where I just calibrated the colours, that divider is so faint that it is barely visible.
    I actually missed it and only see it now that you mention it.
    It also says --- Updated ---, which isn't true at all, I intended the post to be a new post

    - - - Updated - - -

    Part 2:
    What is blocking adding a jpeg? It works just fine if you stick to the limit of 500x500 pixels. So what is happening when you try?
    Well, first of all, the limit has been increased from 500x500 to 800x800 pixels, I guess you missed that.
    I have reduced previous images to 800x800 pixels and added them to my post with no problem.
    This image where I have the ongoing problem is natively 401x569 pixels, so there should be no problem size wise.
    I also posted the important text of the error message which mentions "SQL injection" - SQL is a database - what does that have to do with image size?
    I'll try to add the screen shot of the error message to this post

    Part 3:

    Relayed text reply attempt from krs follows:


    All right - let me take one thing at a time

    ...


    Nope, failed to post in its entirety again.

    I see krs was finally able to post at least part of his message I was attempting to relay.
    Maybe there are some Taboo characters or words that prevents some of it from being posted.
    If so why can't the stupid Pop-Up message just say-so, but I sure can't see anything that's offensive anywhere!!!

    Just another occasional Mac-forums vBulletin screw up I guess.

    How are you doing screen shots? What format are they in? I'm wondering if the firewall is seeing something in the image data that it thinks is malware (SQL Injection, whatever that means). Can you try a different format for that same image?

    My screen shots for this forum are always jpg, 800 pixels or smaller.

    Part 3, which was blocked, was just text - I'll try one line at a time - if it works it will end up in one post anyway

    Did not work
    -----------

    I'm trying to quote part of Jake's post but that is when I get blocked

    Mail drop has nothing to do with this site....That's a Mail function. Open Mail, Preferences, select the account in the Accounts tab, then under Account Information make sure "Send large attachments with Mail Drop" is checked. From there it should work for you.


    What makes you think that I think MailDrop has something to do with this site? I explained in post #26 the steps I was following to activate Mail Drop - these are the same steps you posted again, but there is no "Send large attachments...." option to select

    PS: Well after using Edit several times I managed to cobble together the third part - it seems the quote tag in the third post may be part of the problem - that is the only thing missing - moving on the part 4

    Part 4:

    One thing I noticed was the option initially wasn't there under iCloud, but it appeared after I chose another account and then returned to the iCloud account. Don't know if it was a glitch or a true bug, but when it appeared it could be checked and seemed to work.
    I don't understand....
    The article I linked to specifically said that the Mail Drop feature is available for any mail account from any provider, and while it uses iCloud for uploading and downloading the attachment, iCloud itself does not have to be separately activated. This sounds like you activated something in iCloud itself.
