Computers in every network (e.g.,Internet, LAN,...) are identified by IP addresses (shortened to IP).

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

This article 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 use wildcards as well (? for single character, * for any number of characters)

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

Concatenation

Using 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
