    Default Country based block rules...one still getting in?

    Paid subscription here. Maybe I'm just not understand something but I'm using rule to block by client country a handful including CN, RU as well as India but I noted I'm getting many that are attempting to hit my SMTP server from Seychelles which I believe is in India. Is there a missing country code for Seychelles? I can dig around some more to see if any other countries are slipping through.

    Yes I understand the cons of blocking by country and have make sure about 7 countries have access that support some 3rd party apps with server co-locations overseas. Otherwise we have no business coming from outside the USA.

    Thx

    Country code for Seychelles is SC. https://www.thinkpenguin.com/gnu-lin...ntry-code-list

    I would check the report sessions to verified the connections you are wishing to block are identified from that country.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seychelles

    That island is its own nation, if you want to block it you'll need to block it.

    Thanks. It was in fact blocked but most lookups listed it under India. Still not sure how it got through.

    IP Geo-mapping is not an exact science. There are all kinds of IP loaning going on which is not reported.
