Hi nztim and antonknee

 

You guessed right, I'm trying to restrict incoming traffic for a server to NZ only traffic - a UTM firewall sounds great for when the exisiting comes up for replacement, good tip!  I've become aware that some Ubiquiti devices can do this also, will need to use the list for other firewalls in the meantime.

 

 

 

Kind regards

Out of interest OP, what are you trying to achieve? @djmoz

 



Probably create filter allow rules based on certain RSP / NZ IP addresses

As mentioned the best way to do this is to invest in a UTM firewall which does have a yearly subscription but allows you to write firewall rules based on Countries / ASNs that are dynamically updated without manual intervention

Sonicwall//fortinet/sophos are three common brands of UTM firewall that do this

Dont know about the Ubiquiti but here is an example of a rule where using a sonicwall where I allow certain traffic from Aus/NZ IP addresses

The UTM keeps the Database of IP addresses up to date, though your subscription, then the allowed countries form the condition of the rule, no need to maintain lists yourself, all the hard work is done for you
