Error 1000 - DNS points to prohibited IP

Hi everyone,

I am trying to workaround a worksite block of bitmetv-dot-org. I have setup apache to reverse proxy requests for bitmetv-dot-larwood-dot-id-dot-au to bitmetv.

Now bitmetv also uses CloudFlare and so I received ‘Error 1000: DNS points to prohibited IP’.

I read through the support article here: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200171976-Error-1000-DNS-points-to-prohibited-IP and implemented method 2 by configuring my DNS record for bitmetv.larwood.id.au to ‘DNS only’ but the error persists.

Am I doing something wrong or is what I want to do not possible if both my domain and bitmetv use CloudFlare?

Apologies for the ‘-dot-’ but as a new user I am limited to two links per post.

Thanks.

Correct, you can’t layer Cloudflare over a Cloudflare domain. As soon as Cloudflare sees that the origin domain has Cloudflare cf- headers, it will give you the 1000 error.
