    I've got my home machine set up for web and FTP via IIS. I've got some dork that keeps trying to connect to it. He's not getting in but my FTP log files are getting huge and occasionally, it blocks legit trafic. How do I block his IP? My router can block from LAN side to WAN but not the other way around. Is there a router that can do this?Any suggestions?

    I'm not sure about IIS but its pretty easy to block IP's with Apache (which I'd recomend over IIS anyway)
