    I know I can't. If it helps, I'm on a public school's WiFi:

    if you're on school wifi it's possible that they just block all video streaming sites.

    But what's with the China origin?

    probably a banal tech security thing, i don't think the watchtower hosts its data in the people's republic but I could be wrong

    their IP address is

    Maybe you have some spyware on your computer?

  • redvip2000

    Well that IP address is truly from China, and suspicious, so what probably happened is this...

    When you connect to that public WIFI, you receive a dynamic IP address.

    Mostly likely, a PC that was also connected to that WIFI just before you, was using that same IP address. Also most likely, that PC was infected my malware, probably used by a botnet to attack websites. In turn the Sonicwall firewall recognized this, and placed a block on traffic associated with that IP address.

    It's possible that you were assigned that same IP address right after, and that block became applicable to you. I bet that if you try to connect again after a few hours you will be able to.

    That's my guess. But it's an educated guess.

    Yes, I can connect now.

    Nothing to see here. Carry on . . . 😜
