Anthony, I could easily ban a series of subnets by, for instrance, banning the IP sequence of 18.104.22.168. off at: 216.65.106 or: 216.65. or: 216. The problem is that he has a program that is going out there and grabbing valid IP's like: 22.214.171.124 which belongs to WestOrange.cw.net whatever the hell that is. For awhile he was using French Telnet until I banned most of France which generally begins with 193. This isn't a simple matter of logging on and off and watching the last thre digits change. But thank you very much for the suggestion. -Gene ----- Original Message ----- From: Anthony Baratta <Anthony at Baratta.com> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Monday, October 30, 2000 8:46 PM Subject: Re: [thelist] Big Time Help/Info needed > Gene Arcamonte wrote: > > > > Hi, I have an unusual chat-site at www.hbchat.com > > The chat pages are at: http://www.hbchat.com/Pages/gbook_1.html > > It has received approx 5,000 hits and has two main > > pages which each recieve and average of 100-130 > > posts a day.
