I had all sorts of difficulties signing up with the Mozilla Discourse site, but finally found my VPN (Private Internet Access) was the major culprit. This took me a while to figure out since I use several Discourse sites and have never had any issues logging in.
With Mozilla’s Discourse I was unable to login through any of the available methods while connected to the VPN. Each time I input my credentials, or followed the email link, I received the generic error message:
Once I guessed it might be a VPN issue, I logged into the Mozilla Discourse without the VPN and then, once I was logged in, I connected back to the VPN. This worked, but I was wondering:
Is there are simpler solution to this issue?
Is there a way to alert users that login issues could be related to a VPN?
