    Lately I have been getting about 100 e-mails daily that there have been a large number of failed login attempts, mostly from China IP's.

    I usually click the link to add the IP to the cphulk blacklist. But the list is getting pretty lengthy. Will the length of the blacklist affect the speed of connections to the server?

    I also see options to ban a span of IP's (xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24) But blocking a large span (xxx.xxx.xxx/0/255) does not ban the IP's - they still get through. Is a span of 25 IP's the maximum?

    i suggest you block china from csf on csf.deny the whole range from this country.
    Country IP Blocks
    you can disallow also this country from country deny but csf will take long to restart
