A Super Firewall
« on: March 14, 2012, 02:40:54 pm »
We instated a couple of firewalls a few weeks ago..
These cover the Servers which take care of all the email and websites
within the firewall(s) we have a option to block certain countries and cities
for instance the Baidu spider from Beiging China or the
top known spammers and spam bots.
Keep in mind no firewall is perfect but these seem to do the trick

Firewall Stats of blocked bad guys for the servers for the past couple weeks

Server 2
Asia                                      23091   
Europe                         9657   
South America                      17   
Server 1
TopSpammers                      625   
Africa                               650   
Asia                                    20688   
Europe                               17987   
SouthAmerica                 3632      
Baidu                                  148   
dotnetdotcomorg              150   
Wordlightcom                  320   
limestonenetworkscom      12   
amazoncom                        170

We run an extensive cloud server and as of this date the email servers are at a all time low for spam and have only seen 12 virus hit the mail servers which were removed.

You might notice that Amazon is on that list.. Please keep in mind we are not blocking Amazon email or the website only an exploit that was detected coming out of Germany through Amazon.
We dont block all of Germany and we certainly don't block all of Europe
But the numbers your seeing above is just how bad these spammers want to exploit yours and our information..

The United States of America is nothing to laugh at either.
We still see a good amount of spam from here as well as viruses and some of that might be comming from companies that are from outside the united states using servers here.
The United states is a large resource for spam. Maybe one of the largest.

At this time I want to thank the providers of our firewall and custom settings
from PFSense.org and the Very user friendly addon from Countryblock and IPblocklist
If you have a spare computer and a Gig or more of memory with a Dual core CPU and two or more network cards you could have the same firewall capability within your home or office making a Safe point for all your computers

most of the info for building a pfSense can be gotten here

Please We're not a corporation or a large company we do this as a help to others who may have a small office or a home that may need help from time to time.. This is a Educational website along with dslnuts.com, Cablenut.com and broadbandnuts.com
our one and only advertisement on the website helps us to keep all of this going. Clicking on the advert and checking them out not only helps us but helps them as well.
