We are constantly seeing unauthorized IP making attempts at connecting to servers which they should not have access to. 99% of the time the country of origins is outside the USA. We would like to block certain countries from being able to connect for specific ports while still giving them access to general ports such as port 80 etc. Although we can create inbound firewall rules that will block the IP the problem we are facing is that some countries have over 100+ IP network blocks and to create 1 rule at a time per IP network block will take too much time not to mention too difficult to maintain.
Is there any way to add an option to paste a list of IP or IP networks into a text box type field upon creating a rule which in turn would apply to all IP pasted into the box. Below is an example of a list of IP block we would want to block of course the real list is 100x larger so creating 1 rule at a time will simply take too long. Any suggestions; perhaps this feature can be added or perhaps can I send Peplink a list of IP blocks I want to block and have your team create a script that I can run to turn them on, off etc…
Finally perhaps you can also add an option to block by country through Geolocation database.
