How to block range of IP addresses from SME
« on: June 13, 2006, 07:38:05 AM »
Is there a method of blocking a single or a range of IP addresses from attempting to access SME completely?

You should add a rule to the firewall saying you want to ignore all traffic from that address (/sbin/iptables -I INPUT -s 111.222.111.123 -j DROP)

and then think of a way to make that stick when the machine reboots, for example by putting it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

Ranges are much like the single address, but the address looks different:

207.46.28.0/24 is an example, look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netfilter for more details
