Block an Individual Computer, Browser, or Operating System?

IdleCat asked 2 years ago

Is it possible to block the IP addresses more narrowly? My issue is that I'm in the same area as the IP that I am trying to block so it keeps me from viewing the site as well.

Similar solutions that could work for me:
- Blocking Windows systems only
- Blocking individual computers
- Blocking browser types

Thanks!

block from what?

If you have a firewall at your disposal, you would first block the range of IP that are not allowed to access your site, then you put in an exception for your IP.

So let us say that the 'bad' guys are all using this range of IPs: 192.168.1.2 -> 192.168.1.76.

Let us say that your IP is 192.168.1.45.

So you would write filters like this:

block all from 192.168.1.2 -> 192.168.1.76
pass in from 192.168.1.45
