    Is there a way to see what IP addresses a website is blocking? When we try to access the site it gives us an http 403 error "The website declined to show this webpage"

    If we access through a proxy site it loads fine, and we still also get the RSS feeds.

    Basically just want to find out if there is a way to prove if the site is blocking our IP other than the returned error.

    traceroute is the only thing I can think of, tracert on windows iirc
    run nslookup on the url
    then tracert the ip nslookup feeds ya.
    that should give you some idea I think

    Simple, Run "ipconfig" in Windows Command Prompt to see the IP address that's been assigned to you.

    The proof that the site is blocking you is that your IP deny's you access. Other you spammed them, or someone cloned your IP and spammed them.

    Search google for "banned ip" you'll find a search tool that will show you if you have been banned elsewhere as well (business trade this information with each other).

    what else do you need to prove it? you've shown that the site works for others, but doesn't work for you. now, it could be that they've blocked your IP because of something you've done or they've blocked your entire subnet based on something someone else was doing.
    if you have a router, they aren't blocking based on the IP of your PC, but the external IP that your router has. you'll have to go through your router's interface to find out its internet address though.


    have you written an email to the admin of the site to find out if you are blocked and why?

    Yeah, find some way to contact them. That is probably the best advice. It's not that uncommon to get a ban based on your IP for something you didn't do. Say you are through your city for your ISP, and they send you the box to connect to their wireless. Well, no you go to a website and find you're banned, WTF?! Well, some jerk before you got that IP banned all over and jumped to another ISP. This is REALLY common with Verizon wireless cards that you plug into your USB on your laptop.

    Could just be a routing issue in his path. If so, it's probably being worked on.

    nah, if he's getting a 403 then there was no problems getting to the server, it just denied to show the page to him. unless he's ending up at a different webserver somehow... i'd try the ip address where it works and where it doesn't work just to make sure that isn't the case.
