I am a "newbie" to linux but I need an ip blocking software for FC4. Can any of you help me?

What is it that you are trying to block the IP from?

Look into /etc/hosts.deny

Look into /etc/hosts.deny

...Or iptables, depending on the granularity you want.

Take a look at system-config-securitylevel also...maybe a simple firewall is what you are looking for

Can you tell why you need to block the IP(s)? That might help us to make better suggestions. I was constantly getting hit with unauthorized login attempts on ssh (port 22). I use a program called denyhosts to handle it for me. It reads the /var/log/secure file and blocks connections from offending IP addresses based on criteria you specify.
