How To

The procedure to blacklist an IP using ConfigServe Firewall (CSF)

Blacklisting is a concept that allows users to block IP address from your server. To identify whether an IP address is blacklisted, numerous domains use ConfigServe Firewall (CSF) and suspect spammers ending up by blocking mails. If a user receives large volumes of mail from a particular IP address as spam, CSF can help blacklist the address, thereby blocking all mail from it.

Before we move forward, let us understand what ConfigServe Firewall (CSF) is

Like other firewalls, it is a popular configuration script that was developed to deliver better security for server users. The highlight of CSF is that is very user friendly and has a very advanced interface for managing all related settings. It has the capability to put off all kinds of public access to services and allow select connections, such as FTP, email, and websites. It comes with an additional feature called Login Failure Daemon which tracks user activity. It helps prevent malware attacks and secures your server from cyber attacks. Further, it allows users to manually whitelist or blacklist IPs as well as real time monitoring for automatic IP blocks.

How do you know that your IP is blocked?

If your IP is blocked, it is possible that your mail is being bounced and CSF has blacklisted your domains IP address.
