    I am trying to setup my Host Access Control to control access to Services.

    I cannot figure out what are the formats supported in the Access List?

    I am trying to enter the allow rules before entering deny to ALL, but I seem to be stuck entering only one full IP Address (even though the instructions appear to include a CIDR format sample.

    I have tried entering an IP Range xx.xx.0.0 - xx.xx.255.255. That does not work.
    I tried entering the CIDR format xx.xx.0.0/11 = Does not work.
    I have tried entering xx.xx.*.* = Does not work.
    I have tried entering xx. = Does not work.

    Is there any way to enter a range, or am I just stuck with one IP Address at a time (which does work)?

    you are pretty much stuck with single addresses.

    One thing to consider, check out the firewall CSF. You could then use a service such as dyndns.org and create a host name. After you create a host name, you can use that host name inside CSF which will check for address updates at the interval you set.

    Great Idea. Never thought of that.
