Kevin I like your /etc/hosts.allow recommendation.
I have some scrip kids who target my web site just to bump the visitor counter. I read all the hosts.allow man pages but syntax is still not clear. If I understand things correctly, hosts.allow is enabled all the time, but defaults to passing all tcp packets. Are the following statements syntax correct # all : all : all httpd : .seed.tw : deny #deny all from this domain httpd : 18.104.22.168/8 : deny #deny all from this domain httpd : 22.214.171.124 : deny #deny just this ip address ftpd : 126.96.36.199 : deny #deny just this ip address all : all : all -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Kevin D.

Since it's just one IP, have a look at /etc/hosts.allow. The syntax and comments there should enlighten you greatly as to what to do.... Then, sit back and smile && enjoy a beverage as tcpwrappers sends this c*** to a "virtual" oblivion ...
