Create a list of IP addresses for use in policies

Create lists of IP addresses so that you can use them in multiple firewall rules. A single list is easier to manage than several identical lists that are each defined in a different rule.

To create an IP list that is similar to an existing one, duplicate the list and then edit it.

You can enter an individual IP address, or you can enter IP ranges and masked IPs. You can also insert comments into your IP list by preceding the text with a hash sign ("#").

Masked IP examples are 192.168.0/24, 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0, and for IPV6 2001:0DB8::CD30:0:0:0:0/60. IP range examples are 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.125 and, for IPV6, FF01::101 - FF01::102

  1. Click Policies > Common Objects > Lists > IP Lists.

  2. Click New > New IP List.

  3. Type a name and, optionally, a description.

  4. In the IP(s) list, add the IP addresses, masked IP addresses, or IP ranges (one per line).

  5. Click OK.

Import and export IP lists

You can export one or more IP lists to an XML or CSV file, and import lists from an XML file.

  1. Click Policies > Common Objects > Lists > IP Lists.

  2. To export one or more lists, select them and click Export > Export Selected to CSV or Export > Export Selected to XML.

  3. To export all lists, click Export > Export to CSV or Export > Export to XML.

  4. To import lists, click New > Import From File and follow the instructions on the wizard.

See which rules use an IP list

It is useful to see which firewall rules use an IP list to be aware of which rules are affected by any changes you make. For example, you can ensure no firewall rules use an IP list before deleting it.

  1. Click Policies > Common Objects > Lists > IP Lists.

  2. Select the IP list and click Properties.

  3. Click the Assigned To tab.
