Are there any IP blacklist extensions out there?

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm getting a crapload of new user accounts with Spammy names coming from 84.19.*.* addresses. Is there an extension to block certain IP ranges from creating new accounts?

    why not create a .htaccess file

    order deny,allow deny from 84.19 allow from all

    someone correct me if im wrong.. i dont know much about the subject but i am pretty certain it would work.

    no, it should be:
    Order allow,deny deny from 84.19. allow from all

    I think Bergamot is looking for something easy to change via an extension, but while someone is making the extension that a good solution.
    Or better If you can change your httpd.conf and restart apache:<Location "/people.php"> Order allow,deny deny from 84.19. allow from all </Location>
  • Sure I can do that, but I'm trying to hand the site off to people who may not know how.

    Maybe I'll take a crack at it sometime.
  • There are admin panels out there that can let you modify the .htaccess via a browser GUI.
