Block an IP Address with IP-Tabels

Syntax to block an IP address under Linux

iptables -A INPUT -s IP-ADDRESS -j DROP

 

Replace IP-ADDRESS with your actual IP address.
For example, if you wish to block an ip address 65.55.55.55 for whatever reason then type the command as follows:

iptables -A INPUT -s 65.55.44.100 -j DROP

If you have IP tables firewall script, add the above rule to your script.

If you just want to block access to one port from an ip 65.55.55.55 to port 25 then type command:

iptables -A INPUT -s 65.55.44.100 -p tcp --destination-port 25 -j DROP

The above rule will drop all packets coming from IP 65.55.55.55 to port mail server port 25.
