Question

sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated queries.

As you know, google is blocked in China but I need to use google products, not only google search, but also gmail, calender, etc. For some reason, we have to set up a vps outside mainland China to redirect our request to Google.

I used a vps here in Digital Ocean and it seems running well for the past 50 days. But this week google search keeps blocking me, saying " sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated queries."

I followed someone’s suggestions to disable IPV6 in my vps, but it still won’t work.

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6=1

systemctl restart network.service

echo ‘1’ > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/lo/disable_ipv6 echo ‘1’ > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/lo/disable_ipv6 echo ‘1’ > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6 echo ‘1’ > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/default/disable_ipv6

I am confused about how to resolve this problem. Can somebody help me? Thank you!

In my case, someone in my VPN or other proxy users group has malware in his windows computer. I just delete his account and wait a while problem had gone. You can exclude each account who use your VPS to determine which one has the problem. IMHO, use Chinese software as less as possible to avoid possible further problems.
