Many of you asked for an easier way to manage black- and white-listed IPs. It’s here.
Imunify360 version 4.3 brings a new way for administrators to manage white and black-listed IPs. They can now also be specified in files, making it easy to move, share, or replicate them (for example, by cloning). The process is simple:
- Put white-listed IPs, one per line, in a plain text file in /etc/imunify360/whitelist/
- Do the same for black-listed IPs and put them in a file in /etc/imunify360/blacklist/
- Run this command to restart the agent and load the lists:
Here's some notes about the files.
- You can use as many files as you need with any names you like–-all files in the directory are used. The file name extension (if used) is not important.
- The files are plain-text ASCII with one IP per line.
- Any combination of ipv4, ipv6, and CIDR notations can be used.
- A # character begins a comment line.
- When the agent is restarted (or via imunify360-agent reload-lists), IPs listed in files are loaded/merged with IPs specified in the GUI.
You can read more about black and white lists in our technical documentation.
