We are also getting this error:
Code: [Select]

                        The remote address of the script posting to this notify script does not match a valid PayPal IP address
            These are the valid IP Addresses: 64.4.248.8,173.0.81.33,173.0.81.1,173.0.81.65,The Order ID received was:

I read through this entire thread and am still lost as to what to do about it. Our plug-in doesn't have an option to add IP addresses (that I can see anyway).

Joomla 3.10.4
Virtuemart 3.8.8 10472
VM Payment - PayPal plugin 3.8.8

Can someone post a screenshot of the solution, or step-wise instructions?

You should look int payment options, not in the plugin setup.

Add the ip and all will be fine for now

Hello, thank you all.

So, I should use the extra IP's field to add IP's?

This is because RDNS of paypal is not a reliable source for creating an array of all the IPs?

@GJC

Agreed - there will be no fix as far as I can see due to the PayPal ip ranges changing.

Agree totally - I have IP check switched off for years, on all my customer sites - up until now, no problem has occurred .
