comment Blocking a specific URL by IP (a URL create by mod-rewrite)
I am not 100% sure, but I think you should put an original unmodified URL as it is in the browser. I think these directives are processed prior to invoking mod_rewrite handlers.

@Sam You should try to put RewriteRule ^cms/(.*)$ mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L] before RewriteRule (.*) cms/$1 [L], it looks like it will work this way

comment Why would I need a firewall if my server is well configured?
@Marcin I mean that if someone wants to secure a system w/o using a firewall, he or she will have to create a comprehensive threat model first. Firewalls imply some kind of well-known and well-described threat model, so I don't have to build it from scratch for every host. Of course, if we talk about a military-grade security, there is no choice, a formal threat model should be built.
