You obviously don't know that when you go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com
that you are redirected to v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com which is
located at 216.52.232.135...

Or that you can get to the site directly with the above address instead
of using one of MS's redir.dll link called "Windows Update"...

Subject: [Full-Disclosure] windowsupdate.microsoft.com limits on how many times a computer can access it

I just got an incident where everytime I try to access
windowsupdate.microsoft.com, I keep getting this error:
http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&clcid=0x0409&pver=6.0&ar=ienews&os=N6
Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try
again later.

Well, I used to be able to access windowsupdate.microsoft.com a couple
hours ago with this computer, but after visiting it again and again for
around 7 times, now I can't access it anymore.

It seems that the windowsupdate.microsoft.com server now limits on how
any times a computer can access it, because when I tried by using
a different computer with different IP address, it worked just fine.

Anyway, below is the IP address of windowsupdate.microsoft.com from my
place (remember that windowsupdate now uses Akamai)
phxby@...by:~> host windowsupdate.microsoft.com
windowsupdate.microsoft.com is an alias for
windowsupdate.microsoft.nsatc.net.
windowsupdate.microsoft.nsatc.net has address 207.46.134.92
windowsupdate.microsoft.nsatc.net has address 207.46.249.56
