Specifying I.P. range for Incoming or Blocking

Post by howardm » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:13 am

Hi,

When specifying a particular IP range in Murus— for example, for permitting or blocking access to a particular port— will this designation work ?

67.40.0.0-67.42.255.255 (That is: 67.40.0.0[hyphen]67.42.255.255)

(This is just an example.)

If not for this particular range, what use of the [hyphen] is legitimate ?

Thanks!

Howard

Clarification:

Well, my question is indeed "stupid" :-)

I guess this site should suffice: http://ipaddressguide.com/cidr

If this is *not* pertinent to specifying an IP range in Murus, perhaps someone can illuminate me, and/or provide additional guidance.


Cheers,


Howard

definitely YES.

Murus groups and pf rules accept only single IP addresses or CIDR ranges. And this cool web site offer exactly the feature you need: translating an ip range into a CIDR list. We will put this feature in Murus sometime in the future, it is needed.
