I’m using M-Net as an ISP (Germany) and I’m running a TOR relay (not an exit node). Internet connections from our local network (NAT) are fine, except for at least two websites where we’re getting timeouts when trying to connect:
id.bund.de took too long to respond. Try: Checking the connection Checking the proxy and the firewall ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
Both are from the state/government.
Using my mobile connection from my SmartPhone, I can reach the websites.
Using the TOR browser, I can reach them as well, but I get blocked e.g. by https://www.einmalzahlung200.de (“Access denied”, that’s for sure because I’m using the TOR network for the connection).
How can I figure out the cause for those problems via our regular internet connection, and how can I fix it?
Btw, I had an issue in the past where I couldn’t register at a website – I got blocked blocked because the website assumed our IP address is related to a TOR exit node (which it definitely isn’t).
Theoretically the web servers could block connections from our IP address due to the TOR relay being related to the IP address – is that realistic?
