Hello,

Yes, it is possible to block counties using CSF.

1. Log into server via SSH

2. Edit CSF configuration file

vi /etc/csf/csf.conf

3. Search for 'CC_DENY ' and enter the country code to block

CC_DENY = ""

Example : CC_DENY = "US" -- this will block united states.

5. Save the file and exit

6. Restart the firewall : csf -r
