Permanent ban of IP

Post by CRM User » 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 1.2.3.4
  Issued request to add IP 1.2.3.4.  Check event log for errors, or use 'banip list' to confirm add
SecAst>
After that SecAst will leave the address in your blocked IP list, and never expire the ban.
