Telligent Community allows you to block specific IP addresses or a range of IP addresses with the IP banning functionality. You can also make these same IP addresses accessible again by removing them from the ban list.
Note that by default, the IPBanning module is commented out in the communityserver.config file. To enable this module, you need to enable it in the communityserver_override.config file.
To block an IP address:
- Edit your communityserver_override.config file with the following, then save the file:
<Override xpath="/CommunityServer/CSModules" mode="add">
<add name = "IPBanning" type = "Telligent.Evolution.IPBanning.Components.IPBanningModule, Telligent.Evolution.Components" />
Navigate to Control Panel Dashboard > System Administration > Site Administration > Content/Site Security > IP Address Banning.
Do either of the following:
Add an IP address you to which you want to restrict access in the IP Address field.
Block a range of addresses by typing the beginning address in the IP Address field and the ending address of the range in the Range (optional) field.
Click Add IP Address. The banned IP address(es) and ranges display in a list as shown in the previous two screen captures.
You can remove any address or range from the ban list by clicking Delete next to the item(s) on the list.
