Blocked IP Range in IIS and still getting attacked

I am running 2008 server with IIS 7.0

I have an FTP server running and I am constantly getting nailed by people trying to brute force me.
I went in and created deny rules for a bunch of subnets. However I am still getting people from those IP ranges connecting...why??

For example:
I have a DENY for:
124.0.0.0 with a mask of 255.0.0.0
also tried 124.1.1.1 with a mask 255.0.0.0

I am still seeing IP's trying to brute force from 124.x.x.x

What am I doing wrong? I had the same issue on my 2003 server with IIS 6.0

It is better to implement the deny rule on the firewall.
With the deny rule in IIS, the connection is established assessed and dropped.
