Hi Randy,

I believe there is a rate limit of 2 registrations per week at this time, you might have to wait a bit.

ok. but perhaps the diagnostic could be improved?

i am now ten days out and can not register a whitelisted name

I got the Too many registrations from this IP on my first attempt after installing the Letsencrypt wrapper from github on my own dedicated server with it’s own dedicated IP address!

I have the same issue
FIX :ssl was not enabled it seems on my server, i did “a2enmod ssl” and it works :smile:
(a bit weird I had this error log though?)

Try turning off ipv6

The staff are working on the issue https://github.com/letsencrypt/boulder/issues/1046

If you are on linux you can simply do

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1

Thanks Tim, turning IPv6 off as you suggested solved this issue for me :grinning:
