    Question Best practice for false-positive on region block rules?

    I have a region block for China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea and VR Chat is hitting a German IP that for some reason is triggering the region block.

    Aside from whitelisting IP addresses and/or certain port connections (which I'd prefer not to do) that are triggering false-positives, is there a way to report false-positives and/or a manual means to update or edit the ip->country mappings?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Honestly, the best practice is to not use region blocks.

    Whitelisting is literally your only way to fix it, and yes... that process has issues. Region blocking as a process itself is inherently broken.

    This is why we have Treat Prevention, because it blocks specific addresses based on reputation. But even THAT has its own problems!
