Chris,
 
I have attached my conf file. WOuld you please look at it. I have placed the rule right below the SecFilterEngine. In that case wont that rule be higher than other ones. Maybe i am sounding dumb. I am trying to read the book and understand slowly.
 
I would appreciate if you can look at the conf file.
 
Everyone on this list is so active helpful.
 
Thanks a lot,
naveen

HI Naveen, your problem isn't with the IP rule you created.  You error was:

mod_security-message: Access denied with code 403. Pattern match "/tmp" at
THE_REQUEST


The request you sent:

GET /study_abroad/TMPzad38oxcyx.htm HTTP/1.1" 403 232

has /TMP (lowercased) /tmp in it. You must have another rule higher in
your chain thats disallowing URLS referencing /tmp.
