How do you Bulk add Network Addresses to be block
Dean_Bennett Newbie ✭
First time post. Veteran IT Specialist.
I've acquired the responsibility to add ~850 Network Addresses to be block by our many Sonic Firewalls model NSA 240. Not completely up to speed on this unit but what I've seen so far I'm not seeing a way to bulk add to an Address Object.
It's also possible that I'm going about it completely wrong in which case I would happily accept guidance.
If this question has already been posted, my apologies, I honestly looked but obviously wasn't using the terms to find it.
Thanks ahead of time for your time and assistance.

My hands are a little tied as you mentioned that this is for a NSA 240 device. NSA 240 is a Gen 5 device and is out of support since April 2017.
But, I found an old article that might be helpful.
For Gen 6 and 6.5 units, we support such large additions using SonicOS API and would suggest you to contact Sales and have the hardware upgraded.
You can still go through this article on how to using SonicOS API.
Once the network address objects are added, they can be grouped together into an address group and used in access rule to block traffic.
