White-listing an IP address or range via the rule wizard
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by on 14 August 2008 08:11 PM
In order to white-list an IP address, or a range of IP addresses, a rule should be created in the Whitelist category, which is the first category scanned by dotDefender.

Note: The IP address or range of IP addresses will be white-listed for all rules appearing after this rule, including all rules in the remaining categories.

  1. Open the dotDefender Administration Console.
  2. Expand the security profile of your choice, or expand the Default Security profile if the site, for which the IP/range is being white-listed, is using this profile.
  3. Expand the Patterns section.
  4. Expand the Whitelist Category (v3.x) / Custom Rules (v4.x).
  5. Select User Defined (Request Rules).
  6. On the right pane, press the Add New Rule button.
  7. In the Rule Description window, type a description for the rule.
  8. In the Rule Type window, select "Search in client remote address" and press NEXT.
  9. To white list one IP address - In the Create Pattern window, type the IP address beginning with the caret sign and ending with the dollar sign and add backslashes before each dot sign (Since this is a regular expression field).
    For example: To white-list the IP, type:

    To white-list a range of IP addresses - In the Create Pattern window, type a regular expression representing the range.
    For example: To white-list the range
    or simply:
  10. In the same window, in the Take Action field, select "Allow" and choose whether to log events for the IP, then press NEXT. (** For Blacklisting IP(s), select "Block"/"Deny")
  11. In the Scope To Search window, make sure the "Apply to all pages" option is chosen and press NEXT and then FINISH.
  12. Press the Apply Changes (Green arrow in the upper toolbar of the MMC) button for settings to take effect.
