AT&T is Hiding Behind a Proxy Server?

I am unable to post on Karl Denningers Market Ticker because in his words:

"Your account is coming through some sort of intermediary that accepts connections in the reverse direction. That is, it's coming via a proxy server or similar.

Most areas of the forum prohibit this for non-donor accounts to stop spammers, who hide behind these sorts of servers. The Sandbox does not since it is a testing area.

I cannot exempt you from the check as an unvalidated user (that is one, for whom all I have is an email address); donors (of any sort, including one-time "green" star holders) are exempt, since I have a verifiable identity for those individuals.

Check with your ISP to see what they're doing in this regard.

Why is this, and how do you correct it?

My guess would be, "Carrier Grade Nat", which is AT&T's plan for implementing IPv6 compatibility. AFAIK, the only corrective action is to drop AT&T for another provider.

I don't want to go back to dialup. But thanks for the suggestion. Mr. Denninger is working on the problem. For some reason it seems specific to my ISP alone.

It is likely CGN but that has nothing to do with IPv6 compatibility. CGN is due to IPv4 exhaustion and attempting to prolong the life of IPv4.

AT&T offers 6rd so you can have an IPv6 address. Of course servers which you are trying to reach will have to have IPv6 enabled as well.

CGN is why it's so important that every get on the IPv6 bandwagon as soon as possible.
