Strange Problem with CSF on CentOS - Please kindly help!
I am facing a strange problem with CSF (ConfigServer Firewall) on a CentOS 6 machine that I never came across before and even Aunt Google did not come up with an answer...
Whenever I manually insert an IP to /etc/csf/csf.deny either using an editor or via "csf -d IPADRESS", it perfectly blocks the IP to connect via SSH, but the IP can still access the website that is hosted on the server.
I am used to (and expect) that IP to be blocked for connections to any port and service on the machine. Why does it still come through via Port 80? I am absolutely clue- and helpless. Hopefully, one of you may be able to help me out!
Thanks in advance & Cheers, -Amitz
