Bitcoin.org In Inaccessible at My University

Any connection to bitcoin.org from the Iowa State University campus times out (HTTP[S] and ping). It has been this way for years and IT “doesn’t know anything about why it’s not working.” I’ve also tried contacting Black Lotus and now Level 3, but neither replied. I can work around the block, but I don’t like doing that for every update of Bitcoin Core.

How would I go about contacting someone who has the power to troubleshoot the problem from the server’s end?

Answer

I can’t say for sure, but creating a ticket on the github repo for bitcoin.org is probably reasonable: https://github.com/bitcoin-dot-org/bitcoin.org

This is the code repository for the website, and not support for the server. However, I’m guessing someone there can point you in the right direction, if not help you outright.

But what do I know? I’m a UNI alum 😉
