Clamping Down on IPLists.com

I’m seeing a very serious bandwidth crunch on IPLists.com. Today (so far) I’ve used over 30 gigs. So, in order to clamp down a bit, I’m restricting access to the site to those requests which contain a User-Agent header. It seems that the majority of requests for the lists come from bots with no User-Agent header. I don’t mind if people access the lists, but at least be polite about it. Tell me who you are, for Pete’s sake!

KloakIt users should not suffer any adverse effects, but just in case–especially if you are using a very old version (post v3.5)–I recommend you update to the latest version.

IPLists.com Was Down

My Site IPLists.com was down for awhile during the last couple of days.  I have since moved to a new server and hopefully the new nameserver settings have fully propagated.

After the switch, and during my upload of files to the server, a .htaccess file became corrupted which temporarily caused server errors when trying to access anything in http://www.iplists.com/nw .  This has been fixed.
