Computers in every network (for example, the Internet or a LAN) are identified by IP addresses (normally shortened to just IP).

For some input in HFS (e.g. banning), you need to specify one or more IPs.

The following describes the syntax you can use to specify such IPs.

Single IP

Just type the IP you want:

192.168.0.20

All but one

To exclude an IP, put a backslash \ before it:

\192.168.0.20

IP ranges

Ranges can be specified by putting a dash - between first and last IP:

192.168.0.20-192.168.0.50

192.168.0.20 and 192.168.0.50 are included.

Wildcards

You can also use wildcards (? for single character, * for any number of characters):

192.168.*.*
1?2.*.1.1

Concatenation

Using a semicolon ; you can specify more than one address:

192.2.3.4;192.5.6.7

Combinations

You can combine any of the above methods in the same IP mask:

\192.168.?.*;10.0.0.1-10.0.0.5
