Forum IP restricted session?

Post by domob » Tue Mar 11, 2014 6:50 am

Are sessions on the forum bound to a specific IP? I got thrown out frequently when using Tor - it looks as if I'm logged out as soon as a new circuit is chosen or so. If that's the case, could this restriction be lifted or are there strong reasons why it shouldn't be? It would make life much easier for Tor users! And while we are at it, what about running a .onion version which could be accessed over nf.bit with Tor resolving? :D This could serve as prime example how well Namecoin and Tor work together!

Use your Namecoin identity as OpenID: https://nameid.org/

Yeah, we really should set up a Tor .bit example page.

I use FreeSpeechMe and Nmcontrol all the time now.


Oh, and to the original problem: when I go to http://nf.bit (without https) I get logged out when clicking a link or something... ok maybe something different.
nx.bit - some namecoin stats
nf.bit - shortcut to this forum

This would be cool. I could try to make NameID and/or my website available via .bit (is already) plus Tor (would be interesting also to learn how to set up hidden services).

I'm using HTTPS Everywhere with a custom rule, this works fine. But of course it is a suboptimal solution, and I also get logged out from time to time as described in the OP.
