Re: metasploit.com = 127.0.0.1

The incoming connection rate has exceeded 15Mbps of just SYN packets, so
we decided to point www.metasploit.com and metasploit.com back to
127.0.0.1 for a little while. This is more to keep our ISP happy than
any fear of bandwidth charges. We ran a packet capture of the incoming
SYN traffic for about 8 hours; it takes up approximately 60Gb of disk
space. In the meantime, if you want to access the Metasploit web site,
please use: http://metasploit.org

that's all fine and dandy. still can't reach port 80.


Have you tried using OpenDNS, etc. to see if it resolves?

eg: host -t a www.metasploit.org *208.67.222.222

Perhaps your school/employeer/ISP has decided that Metasploit is
off-limits.
