The forum works great for me from my wired connection and my phone when connected to my wired connection.

The connection seems to be immediately reset when connecting with my cell data connection - observed public IP 166.137.8.45, though I also seem to have an IPv6 address, so it may be an IPv6 issue.

Would any other information be helpful to troubleshoot?

What do you mean by "reset" -- what does it do?

If you use the IP address and not the name the forums  should work!

I just get a connection reset error.

Yeah, that works.  Must be something with AT&T's DNS. :/

+1. On AT&T with an iPhone. I can access the forums on wifi, but not via data. This started right when the forums were migrated last week. (And another mustachian at the meetup was having the same issue- access when on wifi, none on data), but not sure her network.

May be related to Ipv6 settings with the forum migration. Pete has just updated that, takes a bit to go into effect, but if not fixed by, say, Thursday at noon, please post again.

Hm, IPv6 could explain it too.  I know that I normally have an IPv6 address on LTE.

Glad we were able to get you up and running!  There's a IT Haiku relevant here:

There's no way it's DNS!

....It was DNS..."
