Need help writing simple .htaccess function for IIS - Block websites from site access

Hi,

The below code is some code for a .htaccess file, which when used will provide a 403 FORBIDDEN error when badsite.com or anotherbadsite.com tries to access our website.

Unfortunately we are running IIS so can't just use the below - Is there anyone out there who can provide the code to do the same thing for an IIS Web.config  ??

     RewriteEngine on 
    # Options +FollowSymlinks 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} badsite\.com [NC,OR] 
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} anotherbadsite\.com 
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

In IIS server, you should be able to do this in web.config file.

The below code restricts access by IP address.

<security>
   <ipSecurity allowUnlisted="true">    <!-- this line allows everybody, except those listed below -->            
       <clear/>     <!-- removes all upstream restrictions -->                
       <add ipAddress="83.116.19.53"/>     <!-- blocks the specific IP of 83.116.19.53  -->                
       <add ipAddress="83.116.119.0" subnetMask="255.255.255.0"/>     <!--blocks network 83.116.119.0 to 83.116.119.255-->                
       <add ipAddress="83.116.0.0" subnetMask="255.255.0.0"/>     <!--blocks network 83.116.0.0 to 83.116.255.255-->                
       <add ipAddress="83.0.0.0" subnetMask="255.0.0.0"/>     <!--blocks entire /8 network of 83.0.0.0 to 83.255.255.255-->                
   </ipSecurity>
</security>
