[SOLVED] Banning people from visiting my IP Address?





Diablosblizz
Hey, I was wondering something. I have a Server 2003 computer with Apache, FTP and MySQL running on it. After looking at my FTP logs (FileZilla) I have a few users trying to connect to my apache. Only god knows why their doing this. Of course, I have set up a ban that if they do get 5 incorrect login attempts they will be banned for an hour. That doesn't seem to stop them.

So what I need is a way to ban them from accessing my IP, for everything. That means denying the IP from my modem, and not allowing them to connect to that computer. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do this, nor do I own a router.

So can anybody tell me a good way of doing this, or possibly a firewall? I thank you very much.

Kind Regards,
Diablosblizz

Few Options

Option 1

Use .htaccess
Code:
Deny from all
allow from {your IP}
allow from {authorized user IP}


Option 2
Get a router and block the ports

Option 3
Disconnecting Internet Connect while not using , if not needed to be attached with the internet.

Option 4

Open up Mod_access in apache and

look for the area & edit something like below
<Directory/>
</Directory>
Code:

<Directory />
Deny from all
allow from Your_IP
allow from Friend_IP
allow from
</Directory>

1. Will NOT block incoming connections to my FTP and Remote Desktop.
2. No cash to get the router. And I wouldn't be blocking ports.
3. I am using the internet 24/7, and I always will be.
4. I open up mod_access.so and I get some gibberish.

Also in my first post I said they're trying to access my apache, I meant FTP instead of apache. So they are trying to access my FTP Server to gain access to my files.

get a firewall program like comondo im pretty sure there is a way to block ip addresses with firewall since I was blocked from connecinf to my compouter when it was up so there may be a way to customize it.

I apologize if I seemed a little peeved off. I tracked the IP address and got an email. I emailed the user saying if this action does not stop then legal action will be taken.

Thanks for the recommendations. Mod, you can lock this.
