Hi all We are trying to figure out how to "load" in htaccess based on remote ip.

We want to use the limit-connection-per-ip(rate limit module) but only for certain ip's ?

Can this be done ? Any other way to "Rate Limit Apache Connections" ?

This may be better accomplished in your firewall.

Here's an example in IPTables, though it's written with MySQL in mind.
