Here is a tip: G:Line one of them. All those IP's are the same, so g:lining 1 will take care of all of them.

EDIT: Also, add an allow block that looks like this to the conf:

Code: Select all

allow {
  ip unknown@*;
  hostname unknown@*;
  class clients;
  maxperip 2;
};
This allow block should be the LAST allow block in the conf to work. The 'unknown' part applies to anyone without an Identd reply, and the maxperip setting is set to 2, this will stop most clones, as clones (usually) don't have an Identd response.

I am willing to bet, these are nothing but some script kiddie wanting to generate a flood, but is also too dumb to use any proxies at the same time.

The ISP won't matter if you just ban 1 IP. Ban it for a day, and re-ban it when they come back. On my network, when I have an abusive ISP, I gline ~*@*.some.isp.com with the reason "Due to abusive connections, Identd is requiered for this ISP." The ~ ofcourse is there when there is no Identd response, making Identd required to connect.

Although with the advent of mIRC and other clients that enable you to fake ident, this isn't so useful.

Unless most of the abuse is by drones.

EDIT: Also, this 'unknown@*' feature appears to be undocumented. Perhaps that should be corrected.

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, our servers are identd-disable for all clients. Seems like we have to config. :?
