Error 403 when running Gunbot – How to fix.

Error 403 is  a common error when running Gunbot on Poloniex, but, what is it? How to fix it?

Loading config…
Loading exchange – poloniex
(node:15372) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection (rejection id: 1): Error: statusCode 403
(node:15372) [DEP0018] DeprecationWarning: Unhandled promise rejections are deprecated. In the future, promise rejections that are not handled will terminate the Node.js process with a non-zero exit code.

Follow these simple steps:

1- Check your Master secret and your Secret. If you put a wrong Master secret or Secret, your will get Error: statusCode 403

2- Check your api settings on your Exchange. You need to put “Unrestricted access” in order to be able to connect through any IP.

3- Maybe your country IPs are banned from the Exchange, for example, Mexico and some parts of Vietnam are banned from Poloniex. In this case, your best bet is to run Gunbot on a VPS.

Hello I’m your customer from Bulgaria… do I have to use Gunbot on a VPS

    Hi, no need to use VPS. You can do it if you want but you can run Gunbot on your own computer too. Hope this helps.
