I have a few files that can be downloaded from my website. Every few hours all files are downloaded from the same IP address ( - might be Yahoo?). How should I proceed? Should I just block the IP (and hope the downloads are not taken up by another IP) or are there better ways to handle this?


You should create a robot.txt file if you don't want bots/spiders/etc to be crawling certain parts of your site.
