How do you block certain IP addresses in a network?  We have a cisco router and I want to block some known bad IP addresses.

On a router I'd route it to the null interface, since you know the IP.

It is an RVS4000 and you will have to talk down to me, I'm not well versed in this type of thing.
In the GUI, under  "Firewall" you  have "ip based acl" section. Just type in the source and destination IP and you are done.

Please note in this particular model of router, if there is any port forwarding done, then it will take precedence i.e ACL will not have any effect.
