They can't post on the forum for some reason. They can log in, but it says they're IP banned for some reason? I dunno what that's about, but anyway, they messaged me on another site and just wanted me to let you guys know.

They probably have the IP of someone who was banned previously.

Or they were banned specifically.

I'm not even entirely certain how to see recent log-in attempts of banned IP addresses to unban it.

Alright, so, they updated me and said their "IP is blocked because it says their IP is blacklisted," and then it "links them to a site called Spamhaus" or something like that? So maybe it's some sort of error with their IP, then?

The last IP associated with Cos's account is not in the ban-list, and there isn't even one similar to it.

Is Cos using a VPN or something?

Otherwise, it means Cos has a dynamic IP address assigned by the ISP that is conflicting with a previously banned account, and I can't get a list of the recent access violations in phpBB, it seems.

I might be able to poke around on the site access logs instead.

I grant you I'm pants when it comes to tech, but Cos says they're not using a VPN, so I'm guessing the issue is then most likely along the lines of the second thing you mentioned.
