Getting blocked and not sure why?

In order to understand if the block is generated by the target website or by your code, you should run the following command in the terminal/CMD/git bash etc.

curl --proxy --proxy-user USERNAME:PASSWORD -k "TARGET WEBSITE" -I -s

This is a response example:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
x-luminati-ip: m8ecb0c5cbf47c8c742dd2cc3b482ce9d
x-luminati-timeline: init:0,auth:136,dns_resolve_skip:0, p2p_init:1,a2a_reuse:0,p2p_conn:1709
x-luminati-tun-timeline: init:0,dns:67

HTTP/2 200
server: nginx/1.15.9 (Ubuntu)
date: Sun, 12 Apr 2020 09:23:39 GMT
content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8
content-length: 203
cache-control: no-store

The first set of responses is the successful connection to our super proxy.
The second set of responses is the headers from the target website, if they include the header that looks like this 'http/x 200' it means the requests worked and you should look in your code for the blocking reason or contact support for assistance.

NOTE: you need to have a cURL installed to run the test
