Approve or block an IP address

You can add an IP address or a range of IP addresses to the approved IP addresses list if you want the servers at those addresses to be considered safe. You can add IP addresses to the restricted IP addresses list to prevent users from accessing servers at those addresses. If an IP address is on both lists, the approved list takes precedence.
