I've spent over an hour trying to find a thread on this forum on how to fix my problem but have had little luck. I'm obviously missing something so elementary that I'll kick myself once a viable answer is given, but I have no idea what it is at this point and could use a nudge in the right direction. Here's my situation:
I am running a ZyXEL NSA325 NAS on my network, which is running PureFTPD so that my friends and I can access needed files.
The problem is that I keep getting script-kiddies pounding at the gates at all times, now. There is no anonymous access and both the logins and passwords are very secure, but I just don't like giving these little twerps the satisfaction. As is usual on the net, most IPs resolve to China or Russia. I would like to block these IPs at the router, but can't seem to find a way to do it in the GUI.
I'm running Shibby's Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-102 K26 USB AIO on an ASUS RT-N16. I would think something as simple as blocking an IP range would be a rudimentary need for just about any user, but I can't seem to figure a way to do it. Sadly, the firewall GUI has nothing in the way of this kind of functionality and I am pretty much clueless when it comes to working with iptables at this point.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
