I have a DNSBL server hosted at www.mailer.mobi and a script on my web server written in PHP that checks the DNSBL to see if a visitor's IP is blacklisted and returns 0 or 1 accordingly. So you can put the following line of PHP code at the very start of your web site to return a 404 Error "Page Not Found" if it's visited by a computer on a blacklisted IP.

<?php if (@file_get_contents("https://mailer.mobi/?guard=".$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) == "1") { header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found"); die(); } ?>

What I'm after is the same functionality as the above line, but just in other dynamic languages, ie. ASP, JSP, Perl (CGI), Python, Coldfusion etc, so I can put them on the www.mailer.mobi site for people who have sites in those languages.

If you know how to do the above in another language, can you help me?

1. That's not really great PHP code; most commercial web servers have "fopen url" disabled, which will break that code. I would suggest using the curl extension instead.
2. It's unlikely you'll just get someone to write code for you. What have you tried in these other languages? If you don't know these languages, then putting someone else's code on your website would be disingenuous -- you would be stealing the work of the original author of the code. At the very least you'd need to give us a set of license terms to use, such as BSD or GPL. Moreover, if you pass off the code as your own, then people are going to expect you to support it, which is going to be problematic if you do not know the language in question.
3. You'd be better off just documenting your web service itself and then any reasonably competent programmer is going to have no problem with it in whatever language (s)he happens to know.
