hi, router newbe question: re: cisco 2524  ios version 11
I am trying to block  the ip addresses from a website that is always connected to my smtp.  This website apparently owns a block because the specific address is alway different in the last octet.
i tried using RouterA(config)#access-list 1 deny 203.66.88.0 0.0.0.255
and then
RouterA>enable
RouterA#config t
RouterA(config)# int s0
RouterA(config-if)#ip access-group 1 in

My problem is that as soon as I entered the last command, I was kicked off the telnet and can not reconnect.  I'm sure this is a dumb newbe mistake.  FYI my ip address is NOT 203.66.88.0

If possible, I would like to block all smtp coming into server from domain  hinet.net which I'm sure creates huge amouts of spam for us all.

Hopefully you have s serial console cable and can connect via the console port to fix your telnet problem.

I am not sure from a router you can block e-mail from a domina.  You can block it by address, but are you 100% sure that the offending e-mail is really coming from hinet.net and not being spoofed or relayed through an open SMTP relay?
You can not block domain name by using only a router. If you know the IP address range of the domain you are blocking, go ahead use the access-list as you did but with another line added. Please add the following line also.
access-list 1 permit any

yes I can use hyperterminal and now that I am at the location (51 miles away ouch!) I restarted the router and the config went back to startup.
I still would like to create an access list if possible.  No I am not positive that the ip is not spoofed except for using the whois.  I was mostly experimenting with access lists and I do not understand why the router kicked me off.  I also figured so what if I block all traffic from
inetnum:      61.216.0.0 - 61.219.255.255
netname:      HINET-TW
descr:        CHTD, Chunghwa Telecom Co.,Ltd.
descr:        Data-Bldg.6F, No.21, Sec.21, Hsin-Yi Rd.
descr:        Taipei Taiwan 100
Do I really care?
If this is a stupid thing to do, please tell me.
