Anybody have any ideas on what the ipranges are for The Planet, Rackspace, Softlayer, or any of the other big server providers?
I just checked userlogs on our forums and have discovered one person abusing proxies... His IPs reverse DNS lead back to servers and I'd like to either block them from accessing the website or atleast prevent them from signing up.
Any help would be appreciated.
edit: I think this may be in the wrong section, could someone please move it for me? Thanks.
Don't block the ip as it will lead to even blocking emails etc... from sites/domains hosted with those providers (unless you are blocking just for certain ports).
To look for proxy, please check the ip at databse like http://www.au.sorbs.net/lookup.shtml and other similar database, they help in finding out if the ip from which the order was placed is an open proxy or some trojaned machine likely running some proxy etc...
