Blocking http 206 requests

hi

is there a way to block 206 partial data requests ?? download accelerators are bombing my site hard. most are masking as mozilla so i cant add rewriterules to .htaccess

You might want to see if support can help you. This is the kind of thing that affects an entire machine.

Wholly - IS NOT MY PROMO CODE. Even worse, I don’t get any credit for it. Use WhollyMindless for full credit. I’m really disappointed in someone.

if anyone is interested here is the trick - you can do it with mod_rewrite:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Range} !^$
RewriteRule ^files/.+$ - [F,L]

This particular example would deny partial data requests in files/ directory. This blocks all download managers allowing only one stream per file per ip.

Thanks for posting that back Nick, will stick that in my code snippets collection for future reference should I ever have the need for it.
