McAfee Web Gateway reverse proxy client Geolocation block rule

Hi there,

I'm wondering is there any client ip geolocation block rule for reverse proxy setup. It should be similar like a URL.Geolocation rule but for client ip instead of destination ip. I know that i can build block rule based on specific country ip ranges, but i don't think that would be a good idea since each country has many ip ranges. What I need to achieve - block all client requests if their ip address originate from Bulgaria or other country defined by ISO 3166 country code.

Thank you!

Hi,

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

You can check solution mentioned in below link:-

 

https://community.mcafee.com/t5/Web-Gateway/client-geolocation/td-p/566566

 

Note:-  Cloud lookup needs to be enabled for this, local lookup should be disabled.

 

Their is also a thing to keep in mind that is  possible to fake/spoof IP Address.

Hi Alok Sarda,

Thank you for your response - is it possible to show the exact rule since above link doesn't provide information how this user defined property works.
