I like to keep my router's firewall on HIGH. Every site works (gets through it) but CR. I need to make an exception for CR in the firewall settings but I will need the IP address in order to do so.
I have searched online with conflicting results.
Can someone who knows for sure what it is please let me know.
thanks!

doesn't CR use something like Cloudflare to protect against DOS? if so, looking up the ip will do no good.
also, trying to look up such an info seems a little suspicious.

I'm a paid member located in the US (i'm sure CR can see that) I dont know why you would assume it's suspicious.

Actually I have been thinking and maybe it's not that I have to make an exception using the IP address, maybe a certain port is closed when the firewall is set on high.

And to be more specific, It's not that I can't log in with my firewall on high. I can log in, no problem. I just get 1 second of the video and then nothing. On medium video plays fine. For security I would like to keep the router's firewall on high.

I will try and get help here first, If not I may have to call my ISP for tech support. Maybe someone here
can direct me to an answer. My router is a Verizon Fios Actiontec M1424WR Rev 1


Would someone from CR please move this thread to the help/pc mac linux support section.(I see that "minor questions' may not be the correct forum) Thanks.

A nslookup will give the current IP address. Also, you should be able to see what IP addresses are blocked in your firewalls logs. I doubt you will succeed though, in addition to the above mentioned DOS protection, the actual content servers are on a dynamic dns system that will change the IP address frequently.

1. the actual ip address is exactly what an attacker would need to do DOS attacks.
2. it's extremely rare for someone to ask such an info, since everything is handled automatically.

and yes, DOS are common enough, especually for sites such as this one.

"im a paid member", "i'm from <insert country here>"
premium passes are given like candy, and there are proxies.
not saying that you are an attacker, but saying that you are premium and from US adds nothing to your credibility.

Thanks for the info. I wont bother with nslookup. As you say it's dynamic and Im starting to realise that i'm on the wrong track here. It' not that the router is blocking the IP address, it must either be closing the port or filtering the protocol.

I will probably wind up calling my ISP for support.
I hate talking to them.
If any members or anyone from CR support reads this and has an idea please chime in.

If you don't receive an answer here, you might want to try contacting them directly (especially since you're a Premium member). Shoot them a message through their Contact Us form: http://www.crunchyroll.com/help?topic=contact. They might be better able to chat with your about IP addresses, ports, etc. directly. I would check my router logs, but I'm away from home at the moment.

Hope that helps. Cheers.

I asked on DSL Reports and seems that my firewall blocks something or other when set on HIGH. It can be sorted out but I don't really have the time and the know-how. I probably will ask the support for advice. No doubt they have encountered this before and may have the solution at hand.

Thanks and Cheers to you as well!

We don't really have an IP available that we can share. It's all behind Cloudflare.
