TestBlacklists is a program that tests a host or network against a blacklist or set of blacklists. This allows an administrator to find problems existing on their network. I wrote this because I wanted my employer to know about IP addresses with problems before they changed essential services to potentially blacklisted IPs.

Usage: ./TestBlacklists [-osirusoft | -o] [-rss | -r] [-spamcop | -s] [-v] [host | net/mask | hostA-hostB] -o | -osirusoft - use relays.osirusoft.com -r | -rss - use relays.mail-abuse.org (maps-rss) -s | -spamcop - use bl.spamcop.net -v - increase verbosity (once displays hosts as they're being tested, twice is overkill) host - check blacklists for this host net/mask - check blacklists for this network/netmask combination hostA-hostB - check blacklists for hostA-hostB range (inclusive) examples: 184.108.40.206/16 www.byu.edu 220.127.116.11/255.255.0.0 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124 host or net/mask or hostA-hostB is required, and there should be only one
./TestBlacklists -s -r 126.96.36.199/24 Adding check of bl.spamcop.net Adding check of relays.mail-abuse.org 188.8.131.52 - relays.mail-abuse.org -> 127.0.0.2 (relays.mail-abuse.org) Finished scanning blacklists
