I suspect our IP address (xx.xxx.xx.xx) is currently blocked. Is it possible to get that cleared.

Thanks
Andrew

The IP was blocked yesterday, but automatically cleared at 5am this morning. Please note that if the same behavior that caused the block is repeated, the IP will be blocked again.

Thank you. Yes, we've modified the script to avoid repeating behavior.

Hi Andrew,

Your IP was searching for files that did not exist, which caused another block to your IP. The block has been removed.

Would you mind telling us what are you trying to accomplish so that we can help you formulate the best query?

It appears we are blocked again today.

We were attempting to download timeseries of CYAN files. The first attempt that caused the initial block was invoking wget for each file request, but that was modified (based on recommendations from the forum) to make a single call to wget with a file containing a list of urls.  Should that method have led to our url being blocked again?

Thanks
Andrew

Sorry I missed your earlier reply about being blocked for trying to download files that don't exist. I suspect that logic didn't get changed in the script yesterday. I'll pass that information on.

Thanks again,
Andrew
