Re: Legal? Road Runner proactive scanning.

I've had entries from that system performing port scans...not simply SMTP
relay checking.

I think it's time to block 'em at the firewall, as I consider this
tantamount to an attack myself.

We saw the same thing about a year ago and contacted them. They
basically read to us verbatim what you have below. We now simply block
that particular IP at the firewall. They haven't bothered us since.

you ever sort through your logs?  Your IDS would go

the absolute right to perform SMTP relay and open
proxy server tests upon the connecting IP address, to
ensure that the machine at that IP address cannot be
abused for malicious purposes."
