Session failed to validate (incorrect IP)

Postby antiKk » 26 Apr 2013, 08:54

I'm running trunk currently and since switching from 1.7.8 I get logged out often.
It brings me back to the login screen and shows "Session failed to validate (incorrect IP)".

I use tt-rss at home and at work.
At home I do not have the issues.

I have tried different browsers and tried clearing cache etc..

tt-rss prefs > system > error log, doesn't seem to show anything.

Any suggestions?

Suggestion: try reading the error message.

That I have done.
Can you tell me which IP it thinks is invalid?
Server IP, Client IP?

I guess your clients IP has changed and the session is bound to that.

I get this whenever I move my laptop, so whenever it's IP changes. Just log in again.

Also see the 'SESSION_CHECK_ADDRESS' setting in config.php. By default, it checks the first three octets of the (client) IP when validating a session.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I'm pretty sure I know what it is now that I think about it.

I'm trialling using multiple gateways at work (each connects me out via a different ISP).
I could have been getting dropouts with primary and defaulting to the secondary.

This would give me a distinctly different WAN IP without me realising I was getting disconnected.

I'm not sure if I'm beating a dead horse here, but is there any way of skipping the IP part of the session so I can keep being logged in even though I switch IP? (I'm not particularly worried about that part of the security.) It's rather annoying if you're mobile and something you don't have control over keeps switching your IP number. To have that feature user-toggleable would be awesome.

Try reading through config.php.
