Hello, I am trying to deny all IP addresses that originate from a specific proxy host: *.opera-mini.net.

In host access control I currently have: daemon: "httpd" , Access List: "*.opera-mini.net", Action: "deny".

I wanted any and all IP addresses related to this host from accessing any webpage on port 80. I have blocked all countries except US on my server but they are now using proxies to visit my site. Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Do you have CSF installed. ?
If so, have you considered googling "opera mini proxy ip range" and then add these to the deny list, with a '# do not delete' on the end.

I'd also consider that blocking all counties except US could have potential to break things like email and DNS etc.
