Hi

I was testing the Windscribe VPN and when I tried to go to www.bleepingcomputer.com the following message pops up.

Sorry, you don't have permission for that!

But if VPN is switched off I can access without issue. Is bleepingcomputer blocking VPN service? I have no issues when accessing Wilders Security Forums and here with VPN

Anyone knows the answer? Thanks

No issue here..... Are you using the Windscribe browser extension, or the Windows program?
(I'm in "cruise control" mode, showing Canada.)

Both also cannot access. I believe mine is Hong Kong

I tried other countries and it can access.

Thanks again

Using Windscribe Windows Client and no issues going to that site. Try another location? Tested Hong Kong and Taiwan and still able to access the site.

Ok, was playing with Windscribe VPN

Of the 8 countries only Hong Kong server cannot access www.bleepingcomputer.com. Others no issue.

Also, cannot access South China Morning Post to read its news using Hong Kong server. Other servers can.

This site can’t be reached
www.scmp.com’s server DNS address could not be found.

Not an issue to me as I can use other servers but I'll feedback to Windscribe on this

Thanks everyone.
