Do you by chance have this .htaccess file in your cgi-bin directory? If so, it would only affect files/requests in that directory.
If so, add it to the cgi-sys directory also.

From what I understand about .htaccess, it can only be placed in the root directory. As I mentioned, it has worked fine stopping requests to cgi-bin. Surprisingly, there is no cgi-sys directory.

.htaccess affects the directory it is in (which can be any directory) and directories below it.
Not sure on your original question, hope someone can answer that for you. Looks to me like it should work. If there is no cgi-sys dir then they should get a 404 anyway.

I meant 403 Forbidden, not 301.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to ban access to cgi-sys?
