I want to block access from all IP's in the 68.52.0.0 subnetwork.  A bunch of people on that part of the network keep trying the Nimda virus on my server, and its just filling up my logs.  But when I put:

    Order deny,allow
    deny from 68.52
    Allow from all

under the Directory directive for the server directory, its not working because they aren't trying to access that directory.  How can I keep the server from doing anything regarding the 68.52.0.0 subnetwork?  I do not know what the subnet mask is.

Thanks
