Maybe it's time for you to get an IT staffer to run this system.
How do I permanently block a remote IP address?
I have been using a network traffic monitor to look at some suspicious network activity and I found an IP from an entry.
I ran a WHOIS on the IP address and it shows a system administrator from Mumbai, India: 22.214.171.124
I live in the USA and I don't use any softwares, services, or programs from India.
I don't know anybody in India, and I don't go to Indian websites.
Therefore, I am OK with doing an IP block of the entire country of India if somebody knows how.
But my main question is how do I block any IP address in My Linux OS ?
I really would like to do this because the number of processes logging in from the remote address is kind of high.
It seems to start whenever I run it.
I tried running GUFW, but it's too complicated for me. I don't understand the syntax of IPtables.
So should i make changes in the command line itself or either use any Content filter tools ?
