Using the standard Filezilla IP Filter GUI interface seen here, I want to deny all IP addresses in the first box and in the second box allow only one IP# back in.

Am having problems with CIDR notation in the first box to capture all IPs. Looking for help with that, unless there is a better way.

Wildcards are supported. I just successfully used:

Not allowed IPs:


followed by ...

Enable (allow):

Well, that was easy.

You cheated by pushing the Easy Button. – Kalamane Mar 13 '12 at 21:55
@Kalamane, that's true but I'd accept other solutions too. The more the merrier. By wildcard is the first way I found, but would like to also see a more IP-based approach. – John K Mar 14 '12 at 1:04
This is so counterintuitive. The UI says it accepts CIDR but get rejected... – sdaffa23fdsf Aug 12 '13 at 4:47
What about multiple enabled IP addresses? Spaces aren't working for me. – PeterX Jan 20 at 23:11
