    Did you ban the IP using the blacklist feature?

    If so, can you confirm that the IP entry is in the .htaccess file by going to the Settings menu and clicking on the ".htaccess File" tab.

    View the .htaccess contents and check if the IP address is there.

    yes i use feature and it is there. this ip was banned a few days ago from spam comments, then once they were banned they have repeatedly tried to get into the site. same ip over and over again.

    #AIOWPS_IP_BLACKLIST_START
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from 195.3.144.241
    Deny from 84.27.139.91
    #AIOWPS_IP_BLACKLIST_END

    This could be due to a host server setup issue.
    Can you check your httpd.conf file to see what value the "AllowOverride" is set to? This should be set to "All" but if it is set to "none" this will explain why your .htaccess rules are not working.
    If you don't have access to the httpd.conf file ask your host provider to check it and set it for you.

    Just one more thing - can you ask your host provider if their setup will allow the blocking of IP addresses via the .htaccess file?

    Maybe give them the example you are using:

    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from 195.3.144.241
    Deny from 84.27.139.91

    They should be able to tell you if this will work or not and why.

    i have done this, this is and isnt a hosting this. the plugin isnt blocking or allowing because of this possible reason.
    to access our site you actually go through google pagespeed (our cdn) which then google goes to our site. I would actually need a work around somehow as this workaround will be needed for persons like us and persons that use CDN Services. so im a bit at a stopping point to find away around it, as the allow and deny terms may need to be worded differently to fit the needs for cdns versus vps, standard hosting and dedicated.
