CloudFlare 1005 errors using Proton VPN on ghost.org

What this means is that I need to disconnect my VPN in order to access any page at ghost.org.

However, forum.ghost.org is not similarly blocked. Is anyone else getting these errors? I notified Proton about this earlier this week but have not heard back. It’s a real pain to have to disconnect the VPN in order to access the main site.

Extended error message:

Access denied
What happened?
The owner of this website (ghost.org) has banned the autonomous system number (ASN) your IP address is in (9009) from accessing this website.

Just switch to a different Proton VPN server, some of them sometimes get blocked. I’m guessing you’re using the free tier, the problem probably emerging due to particular servers getting flagged by Cloudflare due to usage by spammers or something.

Actually, no. I have a paid account and am using their “P” servers, which enable me to get past Netflix and Amazon Prime VPN blocks. Everytime I connect (e.g., after waking up from sleep) I get a new connection to a new server and a new IP address so I was thinking it was not a simple fix as I tried to connect to Ghost via many VPN connections.

I just routed through a server outside the US and I can get through. Hmmmmm. Thanks. At least now I know a workaround if it starts refusing connections in the future.
