Firewall Tools

Papio has a firewall that blocks wiki spam. Too many attempts to login to the wiki results in a temporary ban on the IP number making the request.

IPs banned are blocked from accessing papio; banned ips cannot login to Babase.

You manipulate the list of blocked IPs from the command line as the Unix root user.

To see the list of blocked IP numbers:

# ipset list wikispam

The timeout values listed are in seconds.

To remove, e.g., IP address

# ipset del wikispam
