What type of traffic are youtrying to stop? Inbound? Outbound? HTTP? SMTP? A decent firewall is going to do a good job and throw in proper spam filtering or opendns web filtering and you have a good enough system in place without the need of tediously blocking subnets. I also read that this is not accurate since proxy's can be used to circumvent this. By the fact that there is no interest makes me think that this is easier to accomplish with other products which most people implement to protect their networks....
Do you really want to add this rule -> Do you really want to add this DENY rule? or if allowing Do you really want to add this ALLOW rule? I don't know if that would be very complicated but I can just see someone clicking and not paying attention...just a suggestion.
I will definitely test this as I see it as possibly being very useful.
What will this do to firewall logs which show IP's which are blocked based on the default rule 79 i think? If the default rule is blocking something will allowing the blocked rule by clicking on the button allow that rule?
