Simplest way to deny access to a class C

Install a wins server to stop netbios requests and a dhcp server or denying the dhcp requests won't stop them. Use natd to forward them.

Hello all.

I am sorry in advance if this question sounds too stupid.

I have a small server for personal use of webpages running:


it is working fine , no problem very stable.

I just need to block some IP class C address that are always trying
to "discover" directories or applications under the web server. They
do not do and can not do anything since this server has nothing
installed but i am tired of seeing in the logs all the intents they
do every 2-3 seconds.

I have not installed any kind of firewall yet.
What do you think is the best way to accomplish this task? If
possible the easiest one. I do not want to do anything else but just
bloc IP's, at this moment at least.

Thanks in advance.
