IS SOMETHING LISTED?

At the moment, we don’t provide a web-based lookup form. So you’ll need to use whatever you normally use to look things up in DNS, such as nslookup.

  • Look up d.c.b.a.bl.scientificspam.net to figure out if the IP address a.b.c.d is listed. It will return 127.0.0.2 if listed, nothing otherwise.
  • Look up domain.example.rhsbl.scientificspam.net (no need to reverse the parts here) to figure out if domain.example is listed. It will return 127.0.1.2 if listed, nothing otherwise.
  • Set the type to TXT instead and rerun the query in order to view the human-readable description of the listing.

Examples:

C:\>nslookup
Default Server: [YOUR DNS SERVER]
Address: [ITS IP ADDRESS]

> 2.0.0.127.bl.scientificspam.net
Server:         [YOUR DNS SERVER]
Address:        [ITS IP ADDRESS]#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   2.0.0.127.bl.scientificspam.net
Address: 127.0.0.2
> set type=txt
> 2.0.0.127.bl.scientificspam.net
Server:         [YOUR DNS SERVER]
Address:        [ITS IP ADDRESS]#53

Non-authoritative answer:
2.0.0.127.bl.scientificspam.net text = "Sample entry - this list is active"

    When I check my domain by IP address 127.0.0.2 is returned but by domain name nothing is returned

    dig +short 33.119.127.174.bl.scientificspam.net
    127.0.0.2
    dig +short real-world-systems.com.rhsbl.scientificspam.net
    dig +short real-world-systems.com.rhsbl.scientificspam.net -t txt

    Am I doing something wrong?

      You have performed twofour queries:

      * a query for an IP address, both A and TXT
      * a query for a domain name, both A and TXT

      The results you included are for the IP address.

      You have omitted showing the query that provided the latter result; that would be “dig +short 33.119.127.174.bl.scientificspam.net -t txt”.

      The domain name queries return nothing because we do not list that domain name.

      The IP address queries return something (i.e. something is listed).

      If you want to discuss it further, take it to email.
