How do I stop inktomisearch.com showing in user info and sometimes in who is where.
The ip range seems to be
68.142.249.0 to 68.142.251.999

Additional question I have:

Do a google search for info....and a search of forums here.
I think its the MSN search...Damn thing hits with untold ips, for couple days, uses heaps of BW and is a pain in the loer rear portion.
Other seach bots behave responsable, running short scanns every few days to a week, from only one or 2 ips.
As far as Im concerned , the irresponsable behavour of inktomisearch can be banned from scanning as a protest...maybe if others feel the same they may pull their heads in
So can some one tell me how to stop inktomisearch scanning please...that would also fix my orginal request
Thanks Steps

Inktomi is Yahoo's search agent.

You can just ban their IP range using .htaccess or any security addon... why you would want to do that though, I don't really know. You just loose out on indexing in their search, and it doesn't hurt them in any way. They won't care whether they can index your site or not, you'll be the only one hurt losing potential visitors.

And actually, MSN bot is the largest bandwidth from my site after myself - 1.18% Smile
All the GoogleBots register around 0.50% total, Yahoo's don't even register when its less than 0.02%

So as you can see, it's really not a problem for me. I don't know why its hammering your site so hard.

Stand corrected....
ink comes in with between 15 and 50 ips within 1/2 hr and its continuoos for 2 to 4 days almost 24/7 then I dont see them for a week to 3 weeks.
my main problem is my user info shows inktomi and with up to 80 ips all showing at once its a mess.
What I realy want to do is make it so it doesnt show in user info.
Would also like it not to add to the page hits if possible as it throws that figure way out of proportion, giving wrong impression.

Well in your block-User_Info.php, you can remove the counting from your guests by changing the line like:
Quote:

$guest_online_num = $db->sql_numrows($db->sql_query("SELECT uname FROM ".$prefix."_session WHERE guest='1' AND host_addr NOT REGEXP '^68[.]142[.][192-255][.]*'"));

Cool added the code, visitors are still there nps...
Will have to wait for inktomisearch to start hitting again to see if filters out from userinfo before reporeting back.
Maybe someelse will be able to check it out before then?
