XF 1.4 FaceBook Ip Issues

i get this error when i run test:

Facebook returned the following error: This IP can't make requests for that application..

i white listed my servers ip in the app config

i removed sevrer ip white list and it fixed it but.. it doesnt seem to like having an ip in there...

+ i am using cloud flare could it be that the outgoing ip is show as a cloud flare ip?

It's possible the outgoing IP might not actually be what you expect (if there are multiple network connections on the server). Or it's possible there is some sort of stateful proxy involved somewhere. You may need to do something to make a request to a page where you can validate the IP (wget against a page that reports the connecting IP may suffice).

Otherwise, that's a Facebook error so it's not really something XF can do anything about.
