[Resolved] [Plugin: AVH First Defense Against Spam] Local blacklist has no effect

    Just a few questions:

    What’s the proxy you are using?
    What’s the IP reported in the email?
    Which IP/IP Range are you adding to the blacklist?

    Thanks

    I tested with proxify.com blocking the one address (69.175.115.50 at the time) and tested with the range also (69.175.115.0/24).

    I did not activate the email option since why move spam from site stats to my email. I picked the IP from WassUp visitor list.

    Also I have not activated IP Caching and yet the address appeared in IP Cache Log as “Ham”.

    With proxify.com a different IP address is used about 9 out of 10 times.

    So blocking that one IP or even block probably won’t do it.
    You can see it by visiting whatismyip.com through the proxy.

    The adding of the IP to the cache is a bug which I will fix in the next release.

    Actually I was able to test with the same one for the duration. As I said I see realtime stats on WassUp.

    I did some testing and I have been able to block my own IP on my production server.

    I’m not sure why it’s not working for you.
    Can you shoot me an email peter [at] avirtualhome[dot]com I would like to test if you can block my IP. I would need the address of your site and you would need my IP 🙂

    I decided to go below WordPress and use “deny from” in .htaccess.

    K, that will definitely work.
