Difficulty logging in while using 4G

Post by tokumaru »

I've been having a really hard time logging in while on 4G... I keep receiving a message saying "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", and after several tries sometimes it works, but if I try to post I get logged out again and the whole thing starts over. Is anyone else experiencing the same or knows what's going on?

Does your IP address periodically change while you're using 4G? You might be hitting a security feature that wants your IP address to stay the same.

I haven't had problems logging in, but I was repeatedly logged out while trying to post a reply from my phone while on 4G/5G. I eventually just posted from my computer.
. That's just like, your opinion, man .

Ah yes, a legacy feature of phpBB. I have disabled binding your cookie session to ip address, should resolve the issue. Let me know it is persists :)

My IP address probably does change if I'm moving around, but even just standing on the same place for an extended period and trying to start a new NESDev session keeps failing.

I haven't had any issues and I'm on a 4G connection, but it's a home connection where the IP does not change often.
