    Hello,

    yes, it is possible to block a whole country but you need to add all its major IP addresses into the Banned IP Addresses area (Blocking Options of Blue Captcha) in order to do so.

    For instance, check here the major IPs for Australia:

    http://www.nirsoft.net/countryip/au.html

    You need to block the major IPs listed in the above link. You can use ‘*’ in 3rd & 4th IP part.

    As an example, I am giving the first IPs to be inserted into the Banned IP Addresses area:

    1.40.*.*, 1.41.*.*, 1.42.*.*, 1.43.*.*, 1.44.*.*, 1.120.*.*, 121.*.*, 122.*.*, 1.123.*.*, 1.124.*.*, 1.125.*.*, 1.126.*.*, 1.127.*.*
    and so on

    Yes, I know, this is a painful procedure but it’s the only way for the time being…

    Your idea (whitelist IPs) is very good, I will consider it and develop this feature in a future version of Blue Captcha.

    Regards,
    Jotis
