it is same, not working, i also tried to ban certain ip like "22.214.171.124" but it also didnt work.
lets back to your suggestion; (126.96.36.199/24)
First Host 188.8.131.52
Last Host 184.108.40.206
means, the range is out of what i want to ban.
mine is: 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168
that i mostly get wp spam (after 1 week work, i get this stat)
the problem is my entried in iptables doesnt work. should i restart ip tables? if it is my mistake, how can i restart it?
that will restart it if you need.
yes i tried to restart like that and it returned:
"Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
Unloading iptables modules: [ OK ]
Applying iptables firewall rules: [ OK ]"
and no any ban
instead, i've looked at sbin/iptables -L -n
and all my previous rules removed from the list.... : S
Bah, you don't need iptables for that
Akismet works wonders to block spam comments, and you don't run the risk of blocking out individuals who might just be affected inadvertently.
Don't like that idea? Here, go with these suggestions. From captcha to bad behavior, some great stuff there.
Tut tut! lol
i know akismet very well and it is activated of course
but it does not prevent php/mysql processings ; )
So it is better to ban some ip ranges that commonly using as spam.
NWSTech, i have very few wordpress sites in my server and i believe that iptables is the best option.
