    There are a couple sites that I would really like to see their sitemap xml file. Not the publicly facing html pages, but I would like to see the actual xml - any suggestions?

    they aren't listed in the sites robots.txt and if they are they seem to be inaccessible to despite any variations on user-agent I try.

    thoughts or suggests?

    try adding variations to the sitemap extension to stumble on it (t's not always an xml file)
    some alternatives:
    domain.com/sitemap.xml
    domain.com/sitemap.aspx
    domain.com/sitemap.htm
    domain.com/sitemap.html
    domain.com/sitemap/
    domain.com/sitemap/index.html
    domain.com/sitemap.cfm
    domain.com/sitemap.php

    alternatively try google search for "site:domain.com sitemap"

    Not all sites run a sitemap, it's just "good practice"
