Re: -j DROP script?

What I need is just a redundant script that will print out the lines of commands: iptables -I FORWARD -s 218.0.0.0/8 -j DROP Except repeated 8444 times with each individual CIDR IP scope after I paste the list of 8444 IP scopes that I downloaded from that website. The script or web page that I'm loo...

Re: -j DROP script?

I'm running a dedicated Windows 2016 Server on a commercial cable connection out of my basement. There is no support beyond myself. I currently spend nearly an hour each morning cleaning up foreign registrations and have disabled registrations completely until I can solve the spam issue that I've be...

-j DROP script?

I currently use -j DROP in my router commands to keep international spammers out of my forum, and would like to block entire countries where the spammers originate (I'm aware of the response time impact this will have). Since my small website is regionally specific anyway, nobody outside of the US n...

Re: Block spam via -jdrop

I do appreciate the response, but I don't believe that the solution lies in the questions. I spent over an hour bouncing questions off "Alexa" (Amazon Echo) and never could find one that she couldn't answer. So while the questions might keep out many bot registrations, it's also going to let in many...

Block spam via -jdrop

I've enabled the registration security questions, but I still get overseas spammers joining my forum. I currently block offending CIDR IP scopes using the -jdrop command on my Linux based router (DD-WRT) but there are around 16,000 CIDR IP scopes that I'd like to block and even if I entered them all...

Re: What comes next after social media?

Brain implant. Believe me. People will line up to have it done. That's how stupid people are. Get ready for the real viruses. I legitimately see this as the replacement for the hand held mobile phone. It will eventually evolve into a simple chip implanted in your head that allows you to visualize w...

Re: Embed IRC channel?

While I appreciate the response, it doesn't really answer my question. I'm also running my own IRC server, I just hope to embed a channel on the forum similar to the mChat extension except an IRC channel so that users have the option of joining the chat either through my forum or through an IRC clie...

Embed IRC channel?

Is it possible to embed an IRC channel on a phpBB 3.2.5 forum? I'm currently using the mChat extension and it does a good job, but I'd like users to be able to connect with us from an IRC channel. I saw older discussions about it regarding older extensions and older forum versions, but nothing recen...

Re: Forum down after update

Thank you for the response. Here is where I'm at with this. The board and the DB were on different drives. I have a fully intact DB, but have lost my config.php. I have attempted to reinstall the board with the same version (3.1.2) and connect with my good DB but I get this error: https://s21.postim...

Re: [Release] Se Square Left

This worked but made my background white (which then prevented me from being able to read the site name). How can I make it stay blue, but just one color of blue?
Thanks,

Re: [Release] Se Square Left

First off, thank you sincerely for this Style. I liked everything about phpBB except for the lacking aesthetic value but this Style cleaned it up nicely. I've just set up my first forum with it and have one thing I'd like to change. Beside the forum logo there is a distinct blue line separating the ...

Re: Blocking by country of origin? CIDR?

I'm posing a follow-up solution that could benefit anyone in a similar situation in the future. The attacks on my server were primarily via the forum software, but once that started I also had script kiddies trying to find any vulnerability on the server. My logs are massive from so many attempts. I...
