Registration Limit from IP Address

(Paul Newell) #1

My users are getting the following when they try to signup:

“New registrations are not allowed from your IP address (maximum limit reached). Contact a staff member.”

I didn’t set a limit that I know of, so not sure why this is happening. We are all at the same three IP address because the forum is for a company intranet.

Is there some kind of rate limit for API calls?

Either relax the limit in site settings or make sure there is at least one staff member from each IP.

What is that setting called though? I can’t find it.

Go to Settings and search for ‘registration’ - have a look for “max new accounts per registration ip”

Nothing comes up when I search for the word “registration”.

Never mind, I found it. Thanks guys!

It’s in the ‘spam’ menu item in Admin > Settings.

If I make it 0 will it be unlimited?

Not sure - make it six nines to be safe (don’t go too high or it might overflow)

(Jeff Atwood) #10

We protect against overflows in settings because this has happened many times before.

I changed the option to 100 and I still have the issue. Does it take some time to be taken into account?

Ok sorry my IP was blocked. I authorized it and it’s now working.
