Subject "Client denied by server configuration" problem
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 04:13:13 GMT
I'm running a name-based virtual server where I have 
closed/blocked the first site, the one that responds if someone's 
making web requests with the IP address. This to block hacker 
attacks on the IP address.

This works fine, but if I get a "Code Red" request ("GET 
/default.ida?..." etc), the entry in the error log reads "Client sent 
malformed Host header" rather than "client denied by server 
configuration:..." plus reference to the web root.

I think it's more logical to block everything, as the configuration 
reads, rather than try to analyze the host header first. Any 

I run Apache 1.3.24 (Win32) on Windows 2000 (latest 
servicepack/fixes applied).

Thanks for your attention,

- Arvid
