WordPress Simple Firewall
[resolved] Ip range (6 posts)

    Was wondering how I could add a cidr to the list as I have an air card for internet access that uses a wide range of different ip addresses when I'm on the road (commercial truck driver). When I try to login to my dashboard, I keep getting the wait 5 second warning initially and then a new authentication email every time the ip changes. I've already painstakingly added over 70 different ip addresses in the same range (185-255) individually. Is this possible to do?

    Hi,

    Yes, IP Address ranges are supported. Their implementation is as a simple range set like:

    a.b.c.d-n.p.q.r

    It doesn't support CIDR format with /24 etc. But you should be able to specify a range as you need using this simple range system.

    Give it a shot and let me know if you have any issues with it.
    Thanks!
    Paul.

    Sorry I'm not familiar with that range set example. Do you mean like this 156.256.135.0-156.256.135.255?

    Hi,

    Yes, that's exactly what I mean.

    How does that work for you?
    Cheers,
    Paul.
