Is my Danish ISP blocking access to www.hak5.org?

Recommended Posts

I have to enable Tor in Firefox to get to the website or I get 404, though interestingly the favicon loads.

Just now to get to the forum I clicked on the activation link and that worked, so I'm in the forum without going through Tor, but if I click on the HOME link, it's still 404.

Do you think this is my isp blocking access or could there be some other cause?

Here's a tracert in case that has any info that could help you figure this out:

I just tried going through another proxy in Germany and I have no trouble accessing the site, so I don't think it's anything my ISP is doing.

Could it be that hak5 has blocked my IP range (90.184.0.0/15) from access to the site?

That would be strange, since forum access isn't blocked.

Maybe its a DNS cache issue with your ISP?? I think the main site and the forums resolve from different IP addresses. Actually just checked and they use the same IP address...

Anyway, going through a proxy of any kind means you are bypassing your ISP's DNS and servers with the proxy pulling down the site for you, so if your ISP does not block the proxy you use, then you should be able to reach any site so long as the proxy itself does not filter it out.

I think they have my ip address blocked in their firewall at the server at divergentnetworks.com

I wonder if anyone else is blocked? Of course I can go through a proxy, it's just slower.

nslookup on my isp's dns shows the hak5 ip correctly:

They might be blocking certain IP ranges if someone from within that range did something to warrant the block. Ask Matt or Darren directly to check their .htaccess for anything stating with 90.184.
