Blocking by user agent if ip doesn't match

May 31, 2011 02:49PM
Hello everyone. Sorry for double posting this question in How to section of the forum but I've noticed later there is a lot of un-replied threads there and that mailing list is more active so I am assuming I have more chance of getting some help here.

I am hoping this is possible and I'd really appreciate some help on configuring it.
We are having some bots on our site that are using google spider user agent but they are fake and their ip range has nothing to do with Google.
So I am looking for some solution that would match visitors with user agent is Google who's ip doesn't start with for example 66.x or 70.x and block them from accessing.

I've found this example on one site
if ($http_user_agent ~ (Purebot|Lipperhey|MaMa CaSpEr|libwww-perl|Mail.Ru|gold crawler) ) {
return 403;
}

But I don't know how to add ip regex match to that and what end result would be. Or negative match in this case I guess.
It is something like this for htaccess !^66.*$ to match those ips that don't start with 66. for example. But again I am not sure what the right syntax would be in nginx config or if it is even possible to match both statements.
