Can not reach this website using any of Airvpn UK servers, I get 403 Forbidden on each search attempt.
I can reach it and browse if I bypass airvpn and can reach it and browse on my mobile phone over the O2 network, the site worked fine a few days ago and seems ok using airvpn router checker so I presume airvpn has been added to a block blacklist somewhere.

Seems ok? Pretty much all servers report a 403 in the route checker.

Thanks for replying giganerd,

I have tried all the UK based servers and keep receiving the 403, if I bypass the vpn the page loads. I use pfsense and one vpn server at a time, went through all of the servers, cleared the cache (s) and rebooted pfsense, still the same thing, I have airvpn DNS set in pfsense so I wonder if that could cause the problem ?

No, your previous assessment that AirVPN servers might be on a blocklist is plausible. HTTP status codes are sent by the webserver or a reverse proxy in front of it to the client, whether it's a browser or a program like cURL, and shown to the user directly.

I can confirm successful access to that website with my ISP IP, from Germany. Clearly it's not a geoblock.

Thank you again, I appreciate your help.

So if you can load the website from Germany and I cant from the UK over airvpn then its probable wickes has blocked the UK servers, I don't know if airvpn can have that block cleared, what I do know is wickes lost a few sales today, I bought from another shop instead !

No, read again everything I wrote, please. I can load the website by using my ISP IP, i.e., when not connected, while all servers still return a 403, including the DE servers.

It's a fool's errand.
