Block Web request by Public IP Addresses

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I'm using McAfee Webgateway 7.8. I'm wondering if I can configure the MWG to block all user's requests in which contains public IP address, not normal URLs? I mean normal requests to domain names are allowed, while requests to domain public IP addresses are blocked.

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Yes, you can.
You are looking for a property (in Rule Set)
URL.HostIsIP
"URL.HostIsIP equals true" - means that there is an IP address in URL.Host

But keep in mind, you should also exclude your internal IP address ranges.
