website help - computer help

anyone know how to block a specific IP from visiting your personal webspace? I have the freebie geocities.com site, so I doubt there's anything I can do, but I thought I'd ask.

My boyfriend- the computer guru, says that most people have dynamic addresses which change IP's every once in a while.

It might not help to block the specific IP.

You can get the IP address when the page is loaded, but what to do with it?

IP address detection script

Get the visitor's IP address

I have no clue about how to block an ip address.

but I do have a question, any dreamweaver users that can help me stop opening my links into a new window? it's frustrating and I am getting nowhere when putting my site together because of it.

You're out of luck w/a geocities site. Geocities themselves might chose to block say, a known spammer from "Geocities" in general, but not from individual personal sites.

You need your own server to do this yourself... www.NYCStopLookingIntoMyLife.com

Just out of curiosity, why do you monitor who *exactly* visits your site?

Her ex is visiting her site.

Since he has an easily identifiable IP adress...he is probably using a static IP adress. So Joppa.gal's BF's advice might not apply.

Doubt that there is a way to block an individual from visiting your site though. Crosses fingers that I'm wrong.

Not sure why it bugs you that he is visiting your site. If it is a blog you don't want him reading...perhaps there is a way you can password protect it...but then you'd have to give everyone you DO want to view it, the password...hasslehoff in the extreme though.

if you were running the server, yeah

but you can't do this here unless there's an option for it, which there isn't

My ex. He keeps going by. And then I get hang up phone calls within the next couple of days. Today's one was at 7 freakin' AM! Maybe it's a coincidence, but somehow I don't think so.

You'd think several months later he'd just stop. I'm sure he's unaware that I know he's going by, but it doesn't stop me from wanting him not to visit it, y'know?

So I thought I'd ask the smart people of this board if they knew a solution.

Blah.

Yeah it's not a blog. Just a regular site.

I'm just tired of seeing his IP show up. I'll get over it I guess.

I password protected my blog for awhile... It's a little bit of a pain in the butt, but it works - Just send the password to the people you know visit the site regularly that you *want* there...

There are a few sites that explain how it's done - pretty much you create a text file that has your password and username in it, and another for it to interact with - then you place it in the directory your index page is (via FTP is best) and then rename the file by removing the extension (.txt).

The site I found explained it *much* better than that Alternatively, you could call your webspace provider and let them know you want your site password protected - they can probably help you with it.
