Thank you for reply,

So, there is no chance to change these values in rwhois ?

This really worked for cloudflare for example, so maybe cloudflare or cloudflare geolocation service respective these values.

Now workaround is to disable tunnel or use hosts to force domains to use ipv4 instead of ipv6.

I have rate limiting enabled in my DNS server.  Im getting rate limiting messages in my system logs for DNS queries that appear to be from HEs tunnel server.  Example:

11-Sep-2021 08:23:52.542 client @0x7fcf905af6e0 ( rate limit slip NODATA response to for IN  (2d03f8d7)

I see no reason for a tunnel server to be the source of a query for any hosted domain outside of HE itself.  Is there a security hole permitting them to be open resolvers?

I have masked the actual query by deleting part of it, but left enough of it to show that it is a DNSBL entry, not a hostname query.  Why would a tunnel server be checking my private list (and furthermore, the list being checked is not an IPv4, IPv6, or a domain name list, but something else)? is the Los Angeles tunnel server endpoint address.

Geolocation providers don't usually rely on administrative database such as WHOIS, but their own internal heuristics.  Thus, they're often less accurate than they would like to claim.  This is especially true on tunnels, as a number of factors of simply being a tunnel can complicate many of the common items used in such heuristics, such as latency, paths, etc.  Each provider uses their own mechanisms, and while some have correction forms, many do not, and with no single clearing house or "source of truth" for geolocation data.  There are some specifications for an ISP to be able to self-publish geoIP data, but that's not supported by many content providers as their content creators often define specific geolocation vendors they must use, or believe the IP locations may be 'adjusted' to avoid geoblocks.  As such, this isn't a situation likely to be simplified anytime soon.

Yes, i know that, but sites protected via cloudflare think i'm from US, not PL.
When geolocation been correct, like this (screenshot from

All worked good.

And now is

Looks like routed /64 is wrongly geolocated or geolocation for routed /64 is missing (missing
network:ID;I:NET-2001:470:71:447:/64 from output)

Please fix this if possible.

I'm trying to leverage my professional network to find a point of contact within The Goog to get the HE prefix that I was allocated off the "abuse" list. Clearly, some HE prefixes were abused in the past, but the geolocation update form does not take IPv6 addresses, only IPv4.

Caused quite a bit of domestic panic when my wife was confronted with the Google reCAPTCHA and a search page in Chinese characters.

I'm seeing the same thing (with 10 active zones, and seeing a limit of 1).  It persists between sessions and browsers for me, though.

I'm sad I did all the certs and got the awesome T-Shirt and IRC was unblocked after my request and I was connected for 3 months straight with no ddos or interruptions!  Then today suddenly everything won't work and the IRC option is gone from Advanced settings :(

SOLVED: It was a browser cache issue resolved by logging out and then opening the site in private browsing mode.

I have 12 zones published in, less than the limit of 50.

Logging in today to make some changes, the header tells me I am over my limit of 1.

Is this a bug or perhaps a policy update?

[IPv6 Certification]
I was hoping to change my domain name that I submitted during the Enthusiast level. Can you help me?
Unfortunately, we don't allow the domain name to be changed once submitted. However, You can reset your certification level back to the 'Explorer' level. Simply log into your account and visit Please remember that once you set back your certification level, you must retake all the certification tests.
