RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^127.0.0.1$
RewriteRule ^.* - [F]



This would send 403 Forbidden

RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^127.0.0.1$
RewriteRule ^.* - [G]

and this would send 410 Gone.  The only way I can think of to make a 404 error is to proxy to a page that produces a 404 error.

I'll just use the 403 Forbidden one.then. It worked perfectly. Is there a way to give a 500 Internal server error instead so that they think our site is down?

As with trying to generate a 404 error, generating a 500 error while the server is working perfectly would be quite difficult.
