Enabling Geo Blocking will download the Geo IP List (IPv4 + IPv6) and generate aliases with IPs for each country that you can use in Firewall Rules. This helps with filtering/blocking IP addresses from specific countries/regions.

Update Interval is set to weekly by default and can be changed to daily or monthly.

This product includes GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind, available from http://www.maxmind.com.

10.9.2. Office 365

Enabling Office 365 will download the Office 365 IP List (IPv4 + IPv6) and generate aliases with IPs for each service that you can use in Firewall Rules. The available services to choose from are: All, Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Common.

Update Interval is set to weekly by default and can be changed to daily or monthly.

10.9.3. Google

Enabling Google will download the Google IP List (IPv4 + IPv6) and generate one alias for all Google IPs.

Update Interval is set to weekly by default and can be changed to daily or monthly.

10.9.4. Custom Rules

Custom nftables rules can be defined here, one per line. They must match the nftables syntax and they will be imported before any rule of the WebGUI is added. Please be careful as syntax errors will lead to errors on loading the firewall rules and no new rules can be added.
