    Hi all,
    I'm new to posting, I've solved many problems here, and utilize this forum regularly, so I want to say, Thanks!
    I want to stop an onslaught of attacks from the whole of China, and Korea. My clients are all local mid-westerners, and we would like to block those countries IP's. I set up the advanced firewall module in plesk 8.6. It's dreadfully slow when I add a single entry, and China takes like 36 entries.

    After setting up Advanced Firewall Module with accept as the default. Can I just go ahead and run an IPTABLES script and block the **** out of Asia? Do I need to do anything special like open 8880?
