Question

  • Can I allowlist private IP addresses?

  • How can I allowlist a private IP address?

 

Environment

  • Silverline WAF
  • Silverline DDoS
  • WAF IP allowlist

Answer

No, Silverline can not allowlist Private IP addresses. 

  • Reason: Private IP addresses are not routed on the Internet, thus these IP addresses never connect to Silverline's infrastructure.
