AS TO BLOCK ACCESS OF AN IP WEB

To that we managed a blog or a Web, sometimes certain unsuitable commentaries of annoying users, jokes€¦ etc. have bothered us. This same morning in my blog had messages of a deranged woman enough who spoke my intimate hairs as large as, something peculiar, but that sometimes can happen when you administer sites Webs of great size or affluence.
The best thing in these cases simply is not to thus give your energies to people, who this hoping an answer yours to take and to annoy the day to you. We must inspire air, relax muscles and€¦ to come to block access of an IP at least Web, so that it cannot accede to any of your contents, or that has a little more difficulties, in case if direction IP is fixed. (ALTHOUGH THE BEST THING€¦ DEAF EARS)

to listen

CLASSES OF DIRECTIONS IP:

  • IP PRIVATE:
    They are the IP's that is formed and they only work within intranets, (or for example: our home or any local network), their ranks is:
    10.0.0.0 to the 10.255.255.255
    172.16.0.0 to the 172.31.255.255
    192.168.0.0. to the 192.168.255.255 
  • IP PUBLIC:
    They are the IP's that leaves to the outside and which they are outside intranets, their ranks are all that do not belong to private ranks of ip's.

TYPES OF DIRECTIONS IP:

  • FIXED or DYNAMIC:
    A private or public IP can be fixed or dynamic. It fixes simply means what its word says: one does not modify.
    Ips corresponding to cards of network of machines that have an active service, generally usually is fixed. (Web servers, servers dns, mail€¦ etc)
    Public ip's of homemade ours routers (with which we are recognized in Internet and with that we left outside our local network), they can as much be fixed as dynamic, this will depend on our supplier and what we have contracted.

2 WAYS TO BLOCK THE ACCESS OF A PUBLIC IP MAKE SPECIFIC THAT SERVANT IS MAKING REQUESTS OF WEBPAGES:

  • BLOCKADE BY .HTACCES
    Once found PUBLIC direction IP that he bothers to us, and in case the user has it fixed, we can block his access without the necessity to install nothing or to make great changes in our code. Simply we will go away to the hidden file .htacces by the root of our directory Web and we published it with the following data: 

    deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    deny from yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
    allow from all

    (we replaced xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy by the direction)

    With this what we are letting know to the service Web him of our machine servant, either apache or another anyone, that we denied the access to the requests Web that come from the following concrete directions IP of the list, and as last we let him know that we accepted the rest of connections.

  • BLOCKADE BY IPTABLES (FIREWALL)
    In another post more at great length I will explain as forming iptables by line of commandos, I will explain here as forming it of graphical way through panel of control of our servant:
    Once within ours plesk or cpanel€¦ we will look for the option €œfirewall€ and accede, next we will see some iptables rules by defect that are these:

    iptables-plesk
    We will locate the www service and we published the rule that comes by defect (to accept all), to change it by: to accept all except the IP of the €œannoying user€.
    In the same way we can be useful to restrict other services.

That is everything, to only thank for the person to him who wanted to bother with her commentaries and threats to me, so that she has inspired to me to write this article that surely will be able to help to others admins of different Web sites.

A greeting and remembers not to use their energies in critics that are not constructive, or by envies, competition, or boredom€¦ unfortunately exists this type of users incapable to say the things to the face, uses as refuge the screen of a computer and a connection to Internet, being believed to be anonymous. Nothing else far from the reality.

I hope that this article serves to you as help,
A greeting,
