Identifying Yahoo! Web CrawlersAll IP addresses in the range 188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206 belong to Yahoo! and some of these are used by Yahoo's Web robots (crawlers or spiders). Yahoo addresses that start with 216.109.117.* also tend to be used by these robots.
Acceptable Use of Yahoo! IP AdddressIf you cannot reach Yahoo! via http://www.yahoo.com/, your Internet provider may be blocking access to the site. Using an IP address based URL might bypass such restrictions. However, such a workaround may violate your host network's acceptable use policy (AUP). Check your AUP and/or contact your local network administrator to ensure visiting Yahoo! is allowed.
