First off, I thought about putting this in FH Off Topic, but seeing as how this is a discussion that is generally about FH and related items, I figured it could be in General Discussion. If I'm wrong, moderators feel free to move to appropriate forum.
So this post is about Forgotten Honor. See, I've never played in any of these grand campaign things before, so I thought it'd be cool to try it out, right? However, I have a concern - every time I try to visit the Forgotten Honor page, I get this:
You are using an Invalid IP to access this site, please contact the F|H support at [EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL] if you think you were unrightfully blocked!
Make sure to include your IP-address and country when contacting us!"
What the hell? What does that mean? I was going to send an email when I realized that I don't know what my IP address is and I don't know how to find it. Help?
Another question - what are these campaigns like? Are they fun, organized? Lots of team play, etc? Anyone who's been in one of these, tell me about them!
Also, I hope it's not too late to register, but then, seeing as how I can't even see the dam website, I don't think it will matter. :confused:
Thanks for your help.
dont understand why? try clicking on my sig and if that doesnt work well try getting on our ts and someone will help u m8 ok. ts.forgottenhonor.com:8767
Need any tournament support?
[EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL] is the mailaddress your looking for!
This new emailaddress is to be used by all members (old and new) as the official way of asking support. It's accessible and should be checked by all admins, which should become the easiest way of getting any tournament and/or technical support for all of you. and if this doesnt work dont know what to tell you m8, but we will get you into battle and hf, I promise u that.

It sounds as though you are using an IP address that was banned by Forgotten Honor. Many people using home connections have dynamic IP addresses that change every so often, so you may be suffering for the misdeeds of some other person that was using it before.
It is sometimes possible to reset your IP address, sometimes it is just a question resetting your connnection to the internet. This may not work for you, and it is also possible that a whole range of IP addresses have been banned, in which case a new address may not be different enough to allow you access to the site.
If you are not able to get in by resetting your IP address, write to one of the email addresses listed above, list your IP, explain politely that you have never been to Forgotten Honor before, and ask them what to do.
You can find out your IP adddress by going to one of many sites which can report it, like http://www.whatismyipaddress.com/.
Same here I get that problem too, I was going to sign up but there no point if you cant even get on the site :(.
hmm, try again, there been some updates ont he website... but you not listed on the blocked ip list..
but this is something that happened lately, prolly your isp that is changed, and are now recongized as a bot or something else... so contact the [email]email@example.com[/email]
Issue Still Remains
Roger, facing same problem. Sent an email yesterday, hope to get a response within the week.... or at least before the tournament starts.
EDIT: Got a response.
Hi, Thank you for letting us know about your problem. I just recently added a mail address on that page, as originally it just blocked you. The problem is not you being banned or anything, the problem is, or better was, the site's security system that couldn't get any info on your IP address. The IP range your ISP assigned you an IP in, was recently purchased, and therefor not known by our database yet. This is a security measure we had to take to protect our site against all kinds of hackers, abusers, etc... We've never been hacked in the 2 years we're online, and intend to keep it that way. Therefor I'd rather block a few people too much than allowing all of them in. Anyway, I added your IP range manually, so the way should be clear to join us for you. And if you're an FH addict, you'll surely enjoy your stay with us! Greetings, DaNCeT PS let me know if for some reason you still should be denied access. It shouldn't, but you never know...
True enough - I just got my DSL connection on Tuesday, so that would explain that. I'd like to applaud DaNCeT for the quick response - I expected it would take a week, but it only took one day to get an answer. Great customer support!
Unfortunately, I still can't access the site...... time to email him back.
