How about just using daemontools? I use it as a honeypot. Configure a
service script that uses tcpserver to simply block the incoming
connection on your firewall of choice. Since the script is held up by
daemontools, it will fire on the next connection. tcpserver delivers you
the remote IP address in $TCPREMOTEIP.

Very simple, very effective :)

exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 5000000 /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -R -v
-p smtp ./block $TCPREMOTEIP 2>&1

echo "@1 block in quick from $1 to any" |ipf -f -


It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
