Controlling IIS IP Filtering Settings from ASP.Net
Posted on 2006-03-26
I need to block an IP / IP Range for a specific Virtual directory in IIS.
While I can do this using IIS' built-in IP filtering feature, I find that it's basically a manual option.
I fancy doing the same using ASP.Net when my web application detects more than three failed attempts from the same IP,
I would like to have my application add the IP to IIS' filter list effectively blocking the user from accessing the application.
1. Detecting multiple failed login attempts from the same IP / IP range
2. Accessing IIS IP filter list to deny access to resource
3. After a timeout, I might also need to "unblock" the IP / IP range
would be a great help. Thanks in advance
