Hi,

I'm trying to associate my SO, SU and Meta SO accounts. A few days back I had no problem associating SO and SU, but now that I'm trying to do the same with Meta SO, I get the following:

Can't Associate This Account

We found differing IP addresses between sites for this association request - please return to Meta Stack Overflow and try again.

Not sure what's causing this, is it the fact that I log in from different locations (home and work) at different times?

So the error says:

We found differing IP addresses between sites for this association request

And you reveal:

is it the fact that I log in from different locations (home and work) at different times?

Conclusion: Yes.

Ok thanks for making me look like a fool :P Worked fine when I tried associating the MetaSO account at home. –  Veli Mar 17 '10 at 15:59

If your IP address differs by too much between HTTP requests, we can't allow the association. This should only happen if your IP is shifting by a lot between HTTP requests.
