Black List

The Black List blocks specific IP address’ from accessing the server. This is controlled through an IP List inside ViciDial called ViciBlack. This allows for easy administration as the firewall can be controlled from the Admin interface.


The Black List needs to be setup in the crontab first.

Black List only crontab
### ViciBox integrated firewall, using blacklist only, check once every minute
@reboot /usr/bin/VB-firewall --black --quiet

Black List with VoIP BL
### ViciBox integrated firewall, using blacklist and VoIPBL, check VoIPBL every 6 hours and blacklist every minute
@reboot /usr/bin/VB-firewall --black --voipbl --quiet
0 */6 * * * /usr/bin/VB-firewall --voipbl --quiet
* * * * * /usr/bin/VB-firewall --black --dynamic --quiet

The IP List feature must be enabled under Admin ‣ Settings.


The White List can be controlled through the ViciWhite IP list. This can be found by going to Admin ‣ IP Lists. The format is simple with one IP or CIDR network per line. Any changes made may take up to 2-minutes to apply.
