@Dan: I checked pf and, to my surprise, I find it easier to maintain instead of iptables. Thanks

comment Impact of the size of hosts.deny on network responsiveness
@MattyB, @Jim: I was not aware that using iptables or pf tables on BSDs would have better performance. I always thought that tcpwrappers was the method of choice for this ind of access control, but apparently I was very wrong.

It is indeed very fast. I had initially thought that a few thousand entries in hosts.deny would cause a noticeable connection delay, but this is not the case. Thanks for your answer.
