Block Malicious IP address with Sonicwall TZ400

Hello all,

I receive an email every couple weeks from an agency who provides malicious URL/IP addresses to my agency. I have been adding these URLs and IPs to the content filter block list, but now I'm under the impression I need to block the addresses completely using a rule to block all connections between the URLs and IPs. I've researched online and found the solution,

  • Firewall > Access Rules
  • Click Add rule
  • Action - Deny
  • From - LAN
  • To - WAN
  • Destination > Create New Network
  • Assign a Name for the IP/Site
  • Zone Assignment - WAN
  • Type - Host or network if you want to block the entire IP range
  • Enter the IP of the site or network range
  • Click OK and then click Add

But I'm wondering if there is a way to upload a text file or point to a file instead of creating a rule for every URL and IP. Is there a way to do this without manually adding every address or range?

    That is one way to do it, you can also do a dynamic botnet list or make manual botnet entries.
