with phpseclib you can connect to SSH and make command like iptables -A INPUT -s -i eth0 -j DROP

$ssh = new Net_SSH2(''); // router address

if (!$ssh->login('user', 'password')) {
exit('Login failed'); }

echo ("BAN $user_ip!");
$ssh->exec("iptables -A INPUT -s $user_ip -i eth0 -j DROP"); ?>

    Hi Fixer,

    I will not implement this feature as this because it will not work on windows server, because I don't really know how to store credentials to connect to a server, because it is too dangerous to manage the iptables from an web interface by default...

    But !

    In fact, all you want is a plugin feature and plugins to install in Pimp My Log according to your needs, right ?

    Plugin will be part of version 2.0 given that it requires a full refactor.
