I saw the message in the source but I am confused :
When we say an IP range between 150 to 200 and 12 to 50 and if we
take in consideration that an IP address is composed of 4 numbers
what do we assume or advocate:
does this mean an IP like this :
(160 is between 150 and 200 - 20 between 12 and 50)
(minimum value - maximum value)
or like this
or like this
Range is around 200 to 230 and 23 to 91
Finding a proxy that actually works, never mind being in the correct range , made this challenge way harder than it should have been.
It's referring to the first set of number in the IP.
66.XXX.XXX.XXX. and. 218.XXX.XXX.XXX would be allowed access based on the above.
You need the first two numbers of the IP to match - it's about the network bits in the IP for different IP address classes.
In class B, 188.8.131.52 â€“ 184.108.40.206 - u have 16 network bits and 16 host bits, so for example: 172.168.XXX.XXX network has a lot of combination for hosts (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168)
Read it up here if u want, or google more
22.214.171.124 ……….. Good job, Some of you didn't even have to use a proxy to etc etc
200 to 230 and 23 to 91 is only referring to the first part of the IP address as far as I know, so anything starting between those 2 sets of numbers should be fine.
If it doesn't log you out of HBH when you click the link then the proxy prob doesn't work, HBH's cookies are IP based, so when your IP changes out you go.
Also, if you're just sitting on that page with the 403 error, and adding a new proxy and then refreshing it, that page is visible globally man, …. even if you're not logged in.
So on the off chance, If your proxy works, it would log you out , and you would still be sitting looking at that 403 error message
The range is set at your choosing to allow or deny access, it could be based on the first set of numbers being between the two ranges the challenge asks for here, or you can set a range for each part of the ip to further restrict access, or you could even create a whitelist of static ips to restrict it solely to an exclusive list.
If you mean why do this, the reason should be pretty obvious, controling access.
