Many of my users are from iran and they reported me that they cannot access any repl from iran, what is the problem? do you block the access yourself or its from iran itself?

Are they on the same internet connection, or are they spread out across the country? I'm not sure what the story is with internet in Iran, but it could also be a network issue.

@SixBeeps they get your client doesnt have permission to get /

@MartiaForoud Doesn't quite answer my question, though I did a little research.
Apparently "sites that provide tools to help users cloak their Internet identity, and other sites nebulously defined as immoral on various grounds" are blocked in Iran, and Repl.it might be a target for those.
In terms of the error, is it an HTTP error? Can you possibly send a screenshot?

@MartiaForoud These kinds of messages are common, but too vague to really pinpoint where the problem is.
Are you on Windows?

@SixBeeps not myself, but the user that sent me these has a mac

@MartiaForoud Hmm, okay.
I'm afraid a lot of this is beyond my knowledge, so I'm just as lost as you are. Sorry :\

@SixBeeps I think this is a replit error

@MartiaForoud Try clicking "details"
Also see if you can ping a repl, and if you can complete a Http GET.

@MartiaForoud Try temporarily disabling SSL/TLS?

@MartiaForoud Most browsers have an option to turn those off.
