We are running OpenBsd Ver 5.0 and the Apache server that came with it.
We have our business/system running on a public static ip.
The server supports a static website with no email, sql, web finance etc,
type features. This server is not used for any other purpose than supporting
a non interactive static web-page.
That being said we still get alot of traffic from locations that simply
waste server resourses.
We do not need to service IP's from other countries, or distant geographical
Is it practical?, desireable, good policy to BLOCK ip addresses
from countries, or geographic arear's to utilize server resourses more
efficiently as our type of business is very local.
If SO, SHOULD it be done in "etc/pf.conf" using a <table> or Apache using
The "Order Allow,Deny directives"?
Advice and information appreciated.
thanks in advance.
