    Email Question:

    Hi –

    Hope you have a nice Friday.

    I will appreciate your opinion about another issue. I need to block a range of IPs like deny from 173.192.128.0/18. Where should I input this information in Bulletproof?

    Also, what does the range 173.192.128.0/18 include? In other words I would like to understand how this range looks like. For example, 173.192.128.0-173.192.63.255. Is it correct?

    Thank you

    See this forum topic link for more explanation about why blocking by IP addresses is completely ineffective and a waste of time: http://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/blocked-attempts-but-no-automatic-blocking-of-ip/#post-24854

    You would add .htaccess IP address blocking CIDR code in this Custom Code text box:   click the Save Root Custom Code button, go to the BPS Security Modes page and click the Root Folder BulletProof Mode Activate button.

    Example CIDR block .htaccess code usage:

    # BLOCK/FORBID Chinese Spammers by CIDR Blocks
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from 27.8.0.0/13
    Deny from 27.16.0.0/12
    Deny from 27.36.0.0/14
    Deny from 27.40.0.0/13
