Thank you but, I try to maintain access to FTP only for my region ( country ) and not only for my IP.

I tried to use the (Host Access Control in Security Center) to ProFTPD without success. Any suggestions? How to ?

i.e. ( my config in Host Access Control )

ftp 201.1.1.1/201.255.255.255 allow
ftp All deny

Many sites are being hacked by ftp. The IPs that connect to ftp are not of my region. I want to block these IPs are not of my region.

Thank you
Konrath

Thank you fineline, but I try to use the Host Access Control to block. ( I will read your suggestion. Linux Iptables Just Block By Country )

i.e. ( my config in Host Access Control )

ftp 201.1.1.1/201.255.255.255 allow
ftp All deny


The server has the PROFTPD but Host Access Control not working. How to?

Thank you
Konrath

Not sure how you can do it with host access control. But that link i posted shows you how to ban Those IP ranges of countries.

Example. If china has been exploiting your server and you want to ban all of china then use the info from that link. It will show you how to ban all of china.
