Can't access my admin panel - Connection Refused

Hi There, I setup two different instances of MIAB over two years ago. They both have been working fine until one just stopped working and I realised today. I cannot access at all. I have restarted the server and even reinstalled MIAB? Any idea what could be wrong?

The page seems to be loading.

Are you able to access from a different IP address?

Thank you very much for this. After hours of struggling, I just turned off my wifi and used data connection from my phone and it works. What is strange is that I was able to access the other email server with the same connection.

Thank you so much

Perhaps try a different device from the same IP address. Maybe you’ve somehow tripped fail2ban?

I can definitely confirm that it works from a different network but fails from my home network. Is it maybe blacklisted somewhere somehow? My home network that is?

A different device on the same IP also fails but if I connect it to a different network it works.

It seems likely your IP address is banned. You first should try and figure out why it was banned. Here is a tip from a different thread:

After that, you can unban the IP address and optionally add your IP address to a whitelist, but this really shouldn’t be necessary if you discover the reason you ended up on the list and resolve it.

Thank you very much, it is Fail2Ban that has blacklisted my IP. I ran the command iptables -n -L on the command line on the server and it showed that my Router’s public IP is blocked. I think some emails on my machine had incorrect passwords and that is why I ended up being blocked. Thank you, I have been assisted :slight_smile:
