Replit GET request blocked, but running locally isn't blocked
JoeyArthur

I have a very simple NodeJS app that is fetching some JSON data using the Axios library.

If I run the code locally on my PC, it works fine. When running the code on Replit, it returns the error: "Error: Request failed with status code 444".

This is for a personal web-scraping project. I don't know much about networking traffic or how detection works, but it feels like requests sent from Replit specifically are being blocked. Is there anyway around this? Is there any configuration specifically for Replit? If not, will using a proxy through Axios work?

make sure you have all the headers correct, but yeah replit is blocked by a lot of services perhaps because of the abuse it's used for in the past.
