Blocked Sites

To see a list of IP addresses currently blocked by the Firebox:

Select System Status > Blocked Sites.
The Blocked Sites page appears.

The Blocked Sites page includes a list of IP addresses currently on the Blocked Sites list, the reason they were added to the list, and the expiration time (when the site is removed from the Blocked Sites list).

For each blocked site, the Blocked Sites list includes this information:

Blocked IP
