thousands of errors from the same IP addresses
help needed in taking steps on continuous errors from the same IP address

Hi

I'm a newbie - so forgive me if I'm not totally clear!

As in this thread [webmasterworld.com...] started by someone else I am getting thousands of hits from IP addresses 195.93.21.5 and 195.93.21.129 (and a couple of other addresses) but in my case they all achieve 404 errors and all try to get a subdirectory called 'undisclosed' - which I don't have.

I would appreciate any help from those who are experienced in this sort of thing as to how I find out what is happening and what steps I should take?

Many thanks
Danny

Just restrict the ip's in your htaccess.

Thanks for your advice Ogletree.

A couple of things have now happened:
1) the host has told me that I can't block IPs on the package I have;
2) in any case, the IP addresses that are causing the problem have shifted;
3) the number of 'odd' hits has decreased to just under a thousand.

If the number of hits continues to decrease then seemingly there is no problem as the demands on my bandwidth will decrease.

Still it would be good to know what might be causing this issue.

Try creating an .htaccess file. I don't see how they could let you have an .htaccess file and turn the ability to restrict ip's.
