Several users have received "Invalid session" errors from the VDSWORLD Forum.
I have looked into this and the cause is, that phpBB links the IP address to a session id,
to prevent hijacking of sessions. If the IP address in one request is different than
the IP address in the next request in a session, the error will appear.

The most likely cause of the error in our specific situation is the AOL Browser. You
will not be able to use the AOL Browser to login and post to this forum. This is caused
by the AOL Browser using transparent proxies and the proxies seem to be randomly selected,
so that a different proxy could be used for each request.

I have some advice for AOL users since I have experience with AOL and
this forum:

Use Internet Explorer for browsing the forum! Since I switched over to using
AOL for a connection and Internet Explorer for browsing I have never had
a problem with these forums or any others. I think the reason is because
AOL handles the assignment of the IP differently with Internet Explorer
than in its own browser.

We recently upgraded the forum here to phpBB 2.0.5, the latest forum
software. With this upgrade, most of the INVALID_SESSIONS errors
our users were running in to should now be corrected.
