Ways of Blocking IP Address
Contact your internet service provider (ISP). Simply give them the IP address to be blocked and they will block all attempted connections from that IP address to yours.
Another way to do this is by using an option in many of today’s router security policies.
This is done by accessing the routers corresponding security and configuration options (unique way of access depending on brand model. Linksys router example below).
For example if you are using a Linksys router, type the default Linksys router ip address 192.168.1.1 on the browser address bar i.e where you usually type the website url.
Configure it according to your internet service provider 's recommendation to block IP address you want.
Give your Internet service provider a call and they will walk you through it.
As an operating system alternative to block ip address, you can download software to do this as well.
Also, you need to have SSI enabled in the web server of your PC.
One more thing that should always be kept in mind is that the extension of the webpage should be used correctly.
You can (within Windows) add an exception to Windows firewall inbound rules blocking incoming connections from the hostile website IP address.
To achieve this in a windows operating system based PC, we can use Internet Protocol Security. For this you need to have a windows support tool installed in your computer, which follows the internet protocol security filtering rules (IPSec).
This software tool is not preinstalled in your windows operating system. You can either download it from Microsoft’s website or you may have to search it out in your windows service pack disk 2.
The option of downloading the software tool is mentioned in the following steps.
Following are the steps on how to block an IP Address:
Note- software and end user based applications are not as secure as the method used on network devices/routers and your ISP as there is more dependencies.
