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.
- Open the dotDefender Administration Console.
- 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.
- Expand the Patterns section.
- Expand the Whitelist Category (v3.x) / Custom Rules (v4.x).
- Select User Defined (Request Rules).
- On the right pane, press the Add New Rule button.
- In the Rule Description window, type a description for the rule.
- In the Rule Type window, select "Search in client remote address" and press NEXT.
- 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 192.168.200.100, 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 10.20.54.0-10.20.68.255:
- 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")
- In the Scope To Search window, make sure the "Apply to all pages" option is chosen and press NEXT and then FINISH.
- Press the Apply Changes (Green arrow in the upper toolbar of the MMC) button for settings to take effect.
