Re: "blocking" hosts

Not really.  This is helpful but will only block access to those services
that are compiled against tcp wrappers.  To block all access you can use
iptables or add a blocked route to your routing table.  For example:

route add -net reject         # (this will block all access
from the class C network
route add -host reject        # (this will block all access
from the IP address

If you want this to persist after reboot then you will need to add the
command to one of your start up scripts.  I use rc.local.
