Recently a customer emailed me to inform me that my site does not work on his computer unless he disables Peerblock (peerblock.co.uk). How can I find out if Peerblock is blocking my site?

From their FAQ

peerblock.co.uk/faq/ - The most commonly used lists - including the P2P ("Bluetack Level1"), Advertising, Spyware, and Education lists we include as "default lists" - are authored by a group called Bluetack. So if you find that some website or company is being blocked by PeerBlock, we're not the ones to talk to about it.


Try installing it and seeing if your site is blocked, if so you must be on one of those defaut lists it uses.

Thank you LAN and Staffa. The "default lists" are available for download here:

[sites.google.com...]

I checked each of them for a portion of my site's IP and didn't find it. I'll ask the customer which lists he has enabled in Peerblock.
