Hi,

I'm wondering what's the purpose of the IP Block feature in Webuzo's Security section. I configured CSF/LFD to block any IP with too many connections, but neither temporary blocked IP nor the permanent ones appear in the Webuzo's IP Block list.

So, what is the purpose of this feature? Is it CSF related or a separated utility?

TIA

Hi,

Using Webuzo IP Block utility users can block any IP or IPs from accessing their servers. Did you check by adding IP in the IP Block page? Are you getting any errors?

>>So, what is the purpose of this feature?
You can block an IP or any number of IPs from accessing your Webuzo server. You need specify IP or range of IP address or domain names.

>>Is it CSF related or a separated utility?
It is separate Webuzo utility. We also provide CSF which users can configure as their requirement.

Let us know if you have any further queries.

OK, understood!

Oh, no I didn't get any issue with Webuzo IP Block (I didn't try to add any IP there), I wondered why you didn't simply rely on CSF, wrapping the CSF command lines options (-g -a -ar -d -dr -tr)?

On my part, of course, I already installed (through Webuzo) CSF/LFD and configured /etc/csf/csf.conf to define my own policy about temp and permanent bans on excessive attempts of access... Then, I was suprised to simply not see the banned IP in your list. Frankly, I don't see the necessity of a second utility while the first one is well known (ie. popular) and very efficient...
