A server/website(?) is in the process of copying my pages and files. They are in this process right now. Everytime I access their directory, I see mor of my pages/files copied. How do I stop them from accessing my site?

This is the site: [62.1X6.106.86...]

I've tried this, but it doesn't work:

SetEnvIf Remote_Host [62\.1X6\.106\.86...] ban
<Files *>
order deny,allow
deny from env=ban
</Files>

<added>
My 'no linking code' is working, but as they make progress in copying the images, it is becoming useless. I want to make it so when they try to access one of the pages they've captured, they get a forbidden.

Have you tried this?

SetEnvIf Remote_Addr ^62\.1X6\.106\.86$ ban

Also, some members here have reported problems when multiple "allow,deny" sections are present in an .htaccess file; If possible, integrate the actual deny that references the "ban" variable with any pre-existing section.

Thanks Jim, so I'm now using this and...

SetEnvIf Remote_Addr ^62\.1X6\.106\.86$ ban
<Files *>
order deny,allow
deny from env=ban
</Files>

...links from this site still are able to connect to my server. As I said, many of the images are displaying as Thief.bmp but I'd like to stop them connecting altogether.

I cannot even resolve the address to see who I'd complain to.

<added> My logs show that the ban IS working, logging "denied by server configuration". Guess he's already hijacked so many files, it's hard to distinguish what's missing - LOL.

keyplyr,

So, now they're using your own pages to hotlink your images?

Okey-dokey... Just add another line:

SetEnvIf Remote_Addr ^62\.1X6\.106\.86$ ban
SetEnvIf Referer ^62\.1X6\.106\.86$ ban
<Files *>
order deny,allow
deny from env=ban
</Files>

You could complain to the hosting provider (if you speak Bulgarian).

Whoa.

Hate to be the party pooper here, but you guys should really change the address and URL you're working with.
