RE: IP address rejected problem

The error message seems straight-forward; it appears that the web server
is blocking all HTTP requests from your IP address.
I tried accessing the page, and I don't see that error message when I
try it, so it would appear that my address is not blocked.
What happens when you try accessing that site using a normal (GUI) web
If you can't see it using a GUI browser either, then my first guess
would be that they're use some kind of intrusion detection system which
has blocked traffic from your IP address; perhaps because they've
detected "unusual" activity of some kind coming from your network?
On the other hand, if it works fine from your GUI browser, I'd guess
you're actually seeing a response from some kind of firewall or proxy
server within your own network. In that case, you should find out if
your GUI browser uses a proxy server, and then try to have curl use that
same proxy server. In the simplest case, you'd simply add -x (--proxy)
to the command line, along with the DNS name (or IP address) and port
(unless it uses the default of 8080) for your proxy server. For example:
curl -s -d ... -x your.proxy.server:PORTNUM http://...
