Create a method for using an editor that can save large numbers of IP's for blocking or allowing countries. IP Security in the web.config file I have been trying to figure out how to implement a large file to block requests using IIS.
I tried adding to the web.config file however it was 10mb, so I added one line to include a file with the IP information which I named ipsecurity.config
Somewhat had success but ran into a few issues. Not all the page was loading or I received a 500 error page.
Geo-IP blocking is what I am looking for, and there are sites that offer updated lists. Entering 1000 records by hand is not ideal. However I do understand its a huge file to load but hopefully this would not kill performance but rather boost it rejecting all the bots.
I am sure something is restricting this from happening I am testing out some solutions or maybe you have a better idea.
