using a filtering system built in to my hosting account which offers allow or deny to these operations HTTP FTP POP SMTP Other .
i denied all of these operations from an ip of
126.96.36.199 - to name a few
but after denying 188.8.131.52 and the others
i still see this ip showing in my weblogs coming from various domains. the lastest being
and other spawn pages off the same domain
yesterday it was same ip but different domain name http://www.page-not-found.net/something
i used a trace route program to get some of the other ip's. but if i continue i am afraid i might block some desirable traffic to my website
like a hop ip or something.
any help ??
also that cleaned up filter talk about
-nXvs 0 tcp and host 192.168.1.100
was interesting. i was thinking of sticking that in my .htaccess file but then realized i would not be able to read the information it gave i am on a linux system
