Frequently Asked Question #116
Can I block the execution of queries against my index for a particular IP address and/or range?
Yes, starting with the Bronze level of service you can specify a list of IP addresses, either whole, or partial, for which FusionBot should prevent the execution of queries against your index. In this manner, after reviewing your search activity reports, if you detect abusive patterns originating from a specific source, or if you simply wish to deny access to your search results for a specific IP address, you can do so using this feature.

Queries originating from your configured blacklist will be returned an HTTP status code of 403, denied, and you will see the same status message in your search activity reports for any denied queries.

All unique IP addresses or ranges (partial IPs), MUST be delimited in your form by a pipe (|), and partial IPs addresses should NOT be wildcarded using an asterisk (*), which is an invalid entry in the input form, rather, to deny an entire range, simply enter the partial IP address up to the point in which ALL IPs should be denied based on a left-compare.

For example, to deny all IPs in two entire class-c ranges, enter:


To deny specific machines, enter:||

Valid characters in your input form include numbers (0-9), a period (.), and a pipe (|). Attempting to enter any other value, including spaces and new lines, will cause an error and prevent your settings from being saved.
