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
dig. Some of the multi-RBL lookup services include our data, but we’ve found that they’re having a hard time keeping up to date, so it’s hard to recommend any of them. Do your own lookups. Get the data straight from the horse’s mouth, as it were. It’s more reliable.
- 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.
