The standard (http://www.robotstxt.org/robotstxt.html) says:

Here I give python an empty file:
$ curl http://10.223.68.186/robots.txt
$

Code:

rp = robotparser.RobotFileParser()
print (robotsurl)
rp.set_url(robotsurl)
rp.read()
print( "fetch /", rp.can_fetch(useragent = "*", url = "/"))
print( "fetch /admin", rp.can_fetch(useragent = "*", url = "/admin"))

Result:

$ ./test.py
http://10.223.68.186/robots.txt
('fetch /', False)
('fetch /admin', False)

And the result is, robotparser thinks the site is blocked.
