    How can I ban the full range of IP addresses between these two please?
    This is APTIA guy that goes through every bloody link on my sites thus clocking up thousands of clicks on my stats that are not real clicks. It throws my stats up the wall.
    64.71.144.0 - 64.71.144.127

    Thanks in advance.

    Sending you a pm that hopefully might help.

    Does this company actually have the entire IP range (ie: 64.71.144.0 - 64.71.144.255 ) rather than just from 64.71.144.0 - 64.71.144.127 ?

    If so, the simplest way to block them using .htaccess is this:

    order allow,deny
    deny from 64.71.144
    allow from all

    That blocks the entire IP range. If however, 64.71.144.128 - 64.71.144.255 are owned by another company or an an ISP, then you're gonna have to put in 128 deny from lines in your htaccess, one for each IP.

    I don't know of a simpler way to do it.

    thanks markymark I checked and they do only have the .0 to .127 IP's so I've had to put in a fair sized .htaccess

    As I find more and add them to the file I guess the .htaccess is going to be really big file, does anybody know of any size limits on this file or if it would do any harm by having a very big file?

    just add JetBot to your robots.txt

    http://www.jeteye.com/jetbot.html says it's robots.txt compliant.

    Geez Jetbot/1.0 hit me all day today and tore up a gig of transfer doing nothing!

    Thanks for the heads up on this bugger

    User-agent: JetBot/1.0
    Disallow: /

    has been added to several robot.txt files.

    @ Gordon did you ever figure out how to do include into a robots.txt file or use .htaccess to do it. Updating the robot.txt on lots of site sucks. That one fix wonder like a SSI would be great.

    If anyone knows a way to do this I would love to know it please. Like Brian says when you find a new rogue bot then you have to update 30 or so robot.txt files then it gets a bit tedius especially when you have to put the really bad ones who ignore the robot.txt in at least one .htaccess file as well.

    Any solutions to this would be most welcome.

    Bummer

    Well, if I find the time to do the research on using an .htaccess file I will let you know if it can be done that way. I saw somebody post that it was possible that way. was it my2cents? If it was you where did you hear about that. I will look into it, but a lead is always nice

    Peace,

    tell your server to parse .txt as php and in each robots.txt use php include to pull from a single location(external to site if needed works with php wrappers)..

    htaccess is a bit trickier since I don't think you can tell the server to parse it as php. I suspect it can be done with php with the file functions (open pointer(external or not), compare, if different-&gt;download, unlink old htaccess, write new, close pointer), setup cron to run every 24 hours, perhaps use this method for the robots.txt file as well so the server doesnt have to parse it every time a robot asks for it.

    this is just theory, I've never attempted it because I don't have very many sites and bandwidth isn't an issue really.
