Cisco Tools

Are there any tools out there that are available so that computer requesting a service to get dropped automatically? For example, we have a computer that hits a webserver but for some reason when it hits the server the clogs the web server down. We are looking for a tool where we can control what its the server and what does not. If a computer does hits the server we would like to communication to be dropped before it hits the server.

Hi Ramos,

The first solution that comes to my mind in this case is to use an access-list.

You should apply an access-list on the incoming interface of default gateway of the computer to restrict its access to the ip address of that web server.

It may look like the following example:

Computer's ip address is, it is connected to fa0/1 interface of the router through a switch.

Web server's ip address is

Configuration on the default gateway router:

conf t

access-list 101 deny ip host host

access-list 101 permit ip any any

interface fa0/1

ip access-group 101 in

This access-list will deny the computer's access to the web server only, but it will allow any other traffic. The computer will be able to access anything else.
