one of my members is having a problem getting into the chat, everyone else can get in fine but he keeps getting logged out due to an 'invalid ip address' message.

any way to get around this? if so what line of code and what file to edit?
That's a configuration setting:
Edit lib/config.php and set $ajaxChatConfig['ipCheck'] to false:

Code: Select all
// If true, checks if the user IP is the same when logged in:
$ajaxChatConfig['ipCheck'] = false;

It seems I can't solve the problem from my end.  Can you?

Have you tried to delete your history, cookies and etc.?

If you could send me your password, I could try to login under your ID and try to get into chat.  Then we would know whether it is your computer or your account.  Then you could change your password to something else so I wouldn't have it any more after I tried.

Or you could go to someone else's computer and try to "chat".

Just a thought.

I opened a new account to see if I could get into chat.  I can't the same things happens.  I tried entering chat on another computer the same thing happens.  On the other computer an error message appeared stating object error.

I wasn't worried about the moderation part.  It was just frustrating not to be able to get into chat.  I have done all that I know to do.  I can't put Stumpburner in trusted sites because it doesn't have an S at the end of http.  But I can put it in the internet zone to allow popups.  I have turned off the firewall, virus protection, and intrusion protection.  But nothing works.  I have researched about invalid IP problems and found the above information.  I have tried to enter chat on a new account, and on a different machine.  Same thing happens you are allowed to stay in chat until the window fully downloads then are kicked back to the sign in page.   Thursday night the same day I posted the information about invalid ips I was allowed in chat long enough to change preferences I signed out and signed back in.  I worked for about the 15 minutes I was in there that night.  There was nothing different I did that night verses all the other times I wasn't allowed to stay on.  I thought someone had fixed the problem.  Tried it again the next morning and the sign in page was all I could get.

Well, I hope Rusty can figure it out because you are needed in chat.  You're needed on the entire board, Katherine!!
