IPDS | Blacklists | Update

The Settings section for the current blacklist has two tabs; Global and Farms.

The Global Configuration tab for both Local and Remote blacklists includes the Name, Type, and Policy fields. If the blacklist is preloaded, you cannot change its name. You can only edit the blacklists that you created yourself.

For Local Blacklists, you need to add the IP addresses or subnets that you want to Block or Allow in the Sources section.

Global Local

Here is a brief description of Each field in the image above from Global settings:

  • Name: Give the rule a clear and descriptive name so that it is easy to identify.
  • Type: We are configuring a local rule, which means that we will manually enter a list of custom IP addresses.
  • Policy: Choose whether to allow or deny traffic from the custom IP addresses.


In the Sources section, you can enter the IP addresses or subnets that you want to allow or deny access to. You can enter individual IP addresses or subnets, or you can use wildcards.

    2. Enter an IP address or a Subnet in the Source field in the form that appears.
    3. Click the Apply button.

The Updates section allows you to schedule downloads and updates for remote blacklists. To download the blacklist specified in the URL field, click the Red cloud icon. This will allow you to test the URL link without having to wait for the scheduled update.

Frequency: Choose how often you want the blacklist to be updated. You can choose daily, weekly, or monthly updates:

  • Weekly: Choose a day of the week for the update and specify a time.
  • Monthly: Select a day of the month and a specific time for the update.

Remote URL: The remote file containing the blacklist must be in plain text format, with each IP address or subnet on a separate line.
