Let me get this straight: I have tried to reach http://www.ci.vancouver.wa.us/. I am unable to see this, as my IP address is blocked. OK, that is from a dymamic Deutsche Telekom address range. Which would block a few million users. Then it says:
If you believe you should be able to view this directory or page, please contact the Web site administrator by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the www.ci.vancouver.wa.us home page.
Which is the page I wanted to see in the first place.
Sorry forhaving to tell you, but from here (being Switzerland) the site works... Maybe it's a punishment for the members of the "Axis of the unwilling" ;-)
Update: Today I can see it. Got a new IP overnight from the 184.108.40.206 block. Maybe I was on the 80.something block yesterday.
it doesn't work from my t-dsl account either. But there's a hint. At the bottom of the 403.6 (?) error page it says:
Nico, I can see your IP address in my server log. It is from the 220.127.116.11 block. (Don't want to post the exact number, but of course know it.)
So, my theory is that some administrator at this site wanted to lock out an IP-range and was too generous.
I'm on the 80.6.x.x range and I can't get in.
My guess is that they are using the 80.x.x.x range on their internal network. Didn't want to have to change it all to a 10.x.x.x so just decided to lock out that ip range from the outside world.
Nah, that would be too stupid.
"Didn't want to have to change it all to a 10.x.x.x"
"Nah, that would be too stupid."
It certainly wouldn't surprise me; it IS a government site, after all :-) ...I am glad, however, to see that it does not seem to be a specific targeting of Deutsche Telekom addresses. Ridiculous, nonetheless.
