Subject Anti-leech IP blocking
Date Sat, 22 Dec 2001 14:28:10 GMT

I have a busy site that once in a while is accessed by users that want
to leech its content. That would not be a problem if that would not
cause the site to spend so much CPU resources to serve that content.

The only solution that I have for that is to block the IP address of the
leeching computers. That is not very efficient because my ISP warns me
before I can do anything.

I was wondering if is there any module or some other automatic way to
avoid this problem.

Thanks in advance,
Manuel Lemos
