DMOZ submission failure

I've tried submitting to DMOZ.org but get the following message:

"Sorry, we could not determine your IP address for this submission. This may be because your browser or ISP has cached the previous page; you may use Back and Reload and try again. Alternatively, you may email your submission to manual-url@dmoz.org. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Is the manual method a slower way of doing things?

I honestly have no clue. I'll try to find out, but in the meantime, anyone who can shed some light on this is invited to respond.

I have tried everything I can to make myself get the same message. No luck.

Are you behind a firewall or proxy?

ZZR....

You are not alone... happens to me all the time on my home PC which is a setup of Windows98 on a Pentium III, IE and a 56k dialup modem hooked up to one of Australia's leading ISP's.

But it works fine from my office PC (NT box) which is on a NT network with all the firewalls and security screens that befit a large company and an IT culture of "can do = must do".

No... I have no idea why. If it is an ODP problem you would think that, given the numbers using ODP, it would have surfaced there long before now. So I'm thinking its related to the user's setup but that's just pure speculation...

Are you using an accelerator such as Naviscope or the likes. If so de-activate it and try again. This happened to me and that fixed the problem.

I'm actually accessing the net from University so there is a firewall. I suppose that must be the reason.

Hi,

I am new here but I have the same problem, i.e. getting a message that says "Sorry, we could not determine your IP address for this submission". I also work in a University.

Did anybody find out why this happens?

I had it happen as well ... twice. I'm on an iMac. I sent the manual submission but had no luck. Then (on the advice of those in this forum) I managed to contact an editor higher up the ladder and she sent me to a document about how to submit to the ODP.

I read that and after reading and re-reading it, I am now afraid to submit in case I do something wrong. They have recently changed the whole set up of the category I am in and I don't really know what to do now.

I'm kind of glad I got that error message. Maybe one day when I can overvome my fear, I will try again.

Don't be afraid to submit to the ODP. The ODP is one of the best places to be listed.
