We cannot download data from oceancolor this month. It seems my ip (xx.xxx.xx.xx) is blocked by the server. In the accessory, it is the "tracert". We want to download long time series MODIS image to analysis the change of some China lakes. Thank you very much. I have try to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It failed. Best Wishes Ge

When you encounter connection problems it is good practice to provide lots of detail: which file failed (with date and time) , the program and version used, and your OS version. Some of us have been caught out by buggy vendor updates (fedora 25 python ssl worked, but fails on fedora 26), so you may need to check your software. The openssl cookbook shows how to use openssl to check that your openssl library is working with the NASA servers. Your client software should have options to report more details of the connection progress.
You should use tcptraceroute and port 443 for https servers:
