Subject [users@httpd] Telling one IP address 404 "Nothing found"
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2007 07:00:15 GMT
Is it possible to block a specific IP address such that they get 404 "Not
found" no matter what URL they try?

I don't want to use "Deny From" or other IP address blocking schemes,
because that will just alert them to the fact that I have my shields up.
I just want this particular IP address to think that my website is
completely empty.
And yes, it is a fixed IP address, so it's worth doing. It will cause them a
lot more grief to negotiate a different IP address, and hopefully they will
abandon their probing.

Then they'll stop pestering my server with request that all fail
