Does RPC1.org block domain or my provider RPC1.org?

#1

When trying to connect from my provider (demon.nl) to RPC1.org I get no response and the end of my tracert looks like this:
9 18 ms 18 ms 18 ms gsr12012.lon.he.net [195.66.224.21]
10 89 ms 90 ms 90 ms pos8-0.br1.nyc.he.net [216.218.200.101]
11 163 ms 162 ms 162 ms pos7-0.gsr12012.sjc.he.net [216.218.254.153]
12 164 ms 163 ms 164 ms pos1-2.gsr12416.fmt.he.net [64.71.128.182]
13 * * * Request timed out.

When trying through a VPN connection of university network (utwente.nl) to RPC1.org I get the site as normal and the end of my tracert looks like this:
11 29 ms 33 ms 32 ms ge-0-1-0.ipr1.lon2.uk.insnet.cw.net [195.66.226.21]
12 * * 113 ms pos8-0.br1.nyc.he.net [216.218.200.101]
13 183 ms 190 ms 187 ms pos7-0.gsr12012.sjc.he.net [216.218.254.153]
14 186 ms 188 ms 191 ms pos1-2.gsr12416.fmt.he.net [64.71.128.182]
15 181 ms 194 ms 190 ms 64.62.168.230

So my conclusion is it cannot be some bad defined route somewhere on the internet since they both reach the pos1-2.gsr12416.fmt.he.net [64.71.128.182]. Thus either it must be that with my domain RPC1.org won’t allow me to connect?? Or it must be my provider who somehow blocks my access to this site.

I would just like to know on which side I need to take action to get my access back like it was before.

rpc1.org is likely rejecting your requests, your ISP is not likely to prevent you from accessing the site.

This is not something that I can fix myself, but I’ll see what can be done.

You can probably access the site using a proxy service if you want.
