IP Firewall Banning

The following guide will show you how to ban IPs on your server.

Why Would I want this?:
Recently we have noticed an increase in A2S & Source engine query attacks.
This firewall subscription would allow you to block IPs from querying your server on the fly.
Giving you the ultimate protection against those who want to crash your server!

Note:
We will still be supplying our global firewalls free of charge.
This system is available for those limited number of attacks that get through or aren't added to our Firewall rules.

Purchase:
Purchase the addon from your billing panel
