I can’t connect to lemmy.ml any longer unless I’m using tor. So I want to find another instance that federates with as many other instances as possible and that is near france. Which one would you recommend?

lemmy.ml currently appears to be hosted on a French OVH IP address (51.38.185.90).

Do you know who is blocking it, or why?!

Hopefully it is just DNS blocking, so you could circumvent it by using a different DNS server?

I have found out that I can use lemmy as long as I use any address other than lemmy.ml. But that makes it annoying, so I’m using midwest.social for now. I don’t know how to look who is blocking it. Is that something I can check?

what operating system are you using? (eg, mac, windows, linux, android, iphone, …)

you could open the terminal and type ping -c 1 lemmy.ml which will send an echo request to lemmy and see if it replies, and will also tell you what IP address your computer is currently resolving the name to. if it is an IP address other than 51.38.185.90 then you are dealing with DNS censorship which is usually easy to circumvent by using a different DNS server. if it has the correct IP and some error message or a timeout, that would be interesting.

if you want to paste the output of that command here, to copy text from the terminal to your clipboard you can use ctrl-shift-c (instead of ctrl-c like in other programs, because in the terminal ctrl-c by itself sends an interrupt signal to the running program).

Well now it’s magically working again so I can’t test it. It hadn’t worked for 4 days.

I took a look at it but though its federated with lemmy I didn’t see any of the content. I guess it has to federate to each community and it has federated only to the linux community on lemmy.

Do you use global timeline/feed? not the local one, right? Local one is almost always the default

Something is blocking it, I don’t know if it’s the ISP or what.

Can account migration be done from one instance to another? If yes, how?

Unfortunately, no, not yet.

why would you really need it? What’s wrong with making a new account?

Midwest.social is hosted in Germany. We don’t federate with lemmygrad or wolfballs though.
