disable IP addresses NOT assigned accounts

I have a block of IP's assigned to my dedicated server. Only a few of the block are assigned to accounts. There are about 67 IP's free. I use WHMCS to setup hosting for paid accounts so I need IP address available for those with dedicated IP in their new hosting plan.

Is there a way to disable IP addresses that are not assigned to accounts so crawlers and hackers cannot connect to sequential IP's?

It would be a nice feature if the IP addresses added were available in all other parts of the server, but only active when assigned to account.


Thanks, Mike

Hey there! There isn't a tool in place like this. If the IP is assigned to a server, it's assumed it could be used at any time. The best way to do what you're looking for would be to remove the IP address.

If you'd like to see a special tool added to help with this work, could you please create a feature request using the link in my signature and I can run that by the team?
