What IP addresses does your VPS server have?

The /24 means a full class C address range (254 IP addresses) is listed.

Note that spamhaus does NOT block anything.  It is a list that servers can reference (mostly for mail) to decide whether they accept/reject mail coming from the listed sites.

yes , my Ip is 78.110.172.135

Before i had the same problem with another IP , and at that time, spamhouse was saying that MY Ip is in sbl list , and yahoo , hotmail was not accepting my iP
so i had to fix the problem

but this time, its like full class is listed.

so who would be responsible for removing the ip, I dont think its me, its vps provider , is not it ??

Ultimately, your service provider is responsible for the offenders in your IP address block as they will be contravening your service provider's terms of service (TOS).
