DataDirect (SD-DD) data service blocking

One problem we've seen taking over the DataDirect service is poorly written applications attempting downloads too frequently (especially after errors).

We've implemented blocking of those IPs on the data server. If you get a connect error and the SD web page doesn't report a service problem you may have been blocked.
