Hi there,

It sounds like that this is a web scraper. You could block this specific IP but in case that you want to deny access to your website, I could suggest adding a deny from all rule in your server configuration and allow only the IPs that should be able to access it rather than blocking individual IPs.

Regards, Bobby
