will eset smart security firewall allow wildcards (*) ?


Recommended Posts

Hi

will eset smart security firewall allow to use wildards like * for the ip ?

 

for example if i want to block an ip i would like to create a rule and set the ip 200.200.200.*

 

will v9 have this feature?

 

to block all the 200.200.200. * now i should use Address range or Subnet

 

i don't understand subnet mask

i want to block all the ip 200.200.200.*  in the address i should I set 200.200.200.0 and in the mask ?

 

 

thanks

hi

in the guide/help there is only
 

Address range – Enter the starting and ending address IP address to specify the IP range (of several computers) for which the rule is to be applied (for example 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.99).

Subnet – Subnet (a group of computers) defined by an IP address and mask.

For example, 255.255.255.0 is the network mask for the 192.168.1.0/24 prefix, that means 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 address range.

 

 

i would understand how subnet and mask do they work

 

may with some examples

To block the subnet 200.200.200.* in your example, enter address 200.200.200.0 and subnet 255.255.255.0 (or simply 200.200.200.0/24 in v9).

hi

and this will block these ips 200.200.200.0 to 200.200.200.255 ?

 

 

 

by the way to obtain the same i can use address range 200.200.200.0  ending address 200.200.200.255 , yes? is the same result ?

thanks

If you create a blocking rule, communication with IP addresses from the range will be blocked for the given protocol. If you don't understand what you are about to block, do not create any rules at all.

 

by the way to obtain the same i can use address range 200.200.200.0  ending address 200.200.200.255 , yes? is the same result ?

You can choose whichever method you want. Either enter a subnet or the starting and ending IP address.
