I have been seeing 404 errors in Log Viewer where someone is trying to get past the login with fake url addresses.


When I add an IP address to web.config that I want to block, I notice that the IP address is not blocked as requested. Why is this not working?
      <ipSecurity allowUnlisted="true">
        <!-- allows everybody,except those listed below -->
        <clear />
        <!-- removes all upstream restrictions -->
        <!-- blocks the specific IP -->
    add ipAddress=""/&gt;

In DNN you can do this through the use of Login IP Filters on the Host/Host Settings page (advanced tab)
