    Open up the CSF page via WHM, find the green quick allow box add the IP there and save.

    That said, I would never allow a client to bypass like this unless I fully trusted him, and, he was working on something temporarily that might be getting him blocked. And even then I would only allow this temporarily.

    If your client is getting blocked, theres a reason for that. Finding out the reason is far better than simply allowing full bypass of your security. Users do not normally get blocked doing normal things.

    Which firewall are you using?

    In every firewall, you will find an option to block all ips and allow few existing easily. Try giving a CIDR range, that shud work
