    Blocking Entire Countries in IIS?

    I have come across an issue where traffic from India is hurting my business. What I have is a number of job boards. Realistically, the only issue I am having is with IT and Engineering positions being applied for heavily by people in India. Since my customer base is all in the USA, I would like to just block India.
    While I know this is easy with Apache using a .htaccess file, I am using IIS on server 2007. Does anyone have any idea on how to do this easily with the large number of IPs that India uses?
    Thanks in advance.

    You can enable IPsec and control policies w/ MMS.
    You don't really block through IIS, but has the same effect.

    I use this method to block most "bad" countries known for hacking / scanning / brute force / spam origins. I even publish the scripts on my personal IT site.

    (this is not a link to that site, but a link to how to do this yourself)
    use is showing how to block a specific port / service, but it will give you the idea

    its even better when you configure your firewall with a list of known shady IP's you can find lists that are updated regularly on the interwebs
