Permanent ban of IP

Post by crmuser » Mon Jan 29, 2018 1:39 am

There are a couple of addresses that regularly attack my PBX and I want to permanently ban them (no expiration). Is that possible?

Yes. First, ensure that the 'managemanual' setting in the [banip] stanza of your secast.conf file is set to true.

Next, from the telnet interface to SecAst manually add the IP address to the ban list. For example:

Code: Select all

SecAst>banip add
  Issued request to add IP  Check event log for errors, or use 'banip list' to confirm add
After that SecAst will leave the address in your blocked IP list, and never expire the ban.
