IP Added to Ban List Event

This Event is triggered when an IP address is added to the ban list by the system (not manually by an administrator). administrators can configure Event Rules to capture this Event and send notifications or write to logs.

To define an IP Added to Ban List Event

  1. Follow the procedures in Defining Event Rules.

  2. In the Create New Rule dialog box, under Site Events, click IP Added to Ban List, and then click OK. The new Rule appears in the Rule Builder.

  3. Add any (optional) Conditions (for example, If Event Reason, If Remote IP, If Server Running, etc.) and one or more Actions (for example, Send notification email).

    • The possible Event Reasons include DoS/Flood prevention trigger (permanent or temporary), Invalid password attempts exceeded, and Invalid username attempts exceeded.

  4. Click Apply to save the Rule. The Rule appears similar to the Rule below.

IP Access-related Event Rules are limited to 1000 rules.
