Blocked IPs can be used from Admin account and from Accountant account with Monitoring permissions enabled. From Admin account, go to Security -> Blocked IPs to manage blocked IPs. An IP can be blocked by entering valid input values and by clicking the Block icon. The to-be-blocked IP must not be local or a current server IP. By clicking on the Unblock icon an IP is unblocked. All the blocking/unblocking changes will be active in one minute after they have been applied. Country information (flag) can take up to one hour to appear.

Blocked IP format

It is possible to block IPs in such format:

  • Single IP, for example,
  • Subnet in CIDR notation, for example, Please note that CIDR notation will be converted into the canonical format automatically. For example, if you enter, it will be converted to This is because denotes the range -, so any subnet from to means exactly the same range, and a canonical way to represent this is range is with
  • IP range in format x.x.x-xx, for example Please note that all IPs in the range will be blocked as separate IPs, so entering would create 125 single IP entries. For this reason, we strongly recommend using subnets if possible.
