List of IP Addresses to Ignore

Mar 7, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Hi - I have a suggestion.

Could you configure the server to have a list of IP addresses that it should not allow to establish connections (or close immediately).

Reason I ask is because we are hosting a secure socket server in the cloud and using port 443. The Azure heartbeat tries to establish a connection every minute and logs on an error each time which is flooding our logs. REason is because we don't have a unsecured endpoint for the azure service to call as we load the certificate at runtime form the local store. This is required because you can't specify a SSL cert for a tcp endpoint in azure.

If we were able to configure a list of ignored IP addresses based on an ip range using wildcarding 127.0.* for example, then we could deny those ranges for the operational heartbeat.

Although we have a specific requirement for this - I wondered if it served any wider purpose across the user base?

Thanks

You'd better take a look at ConnectionFilter:

There is a sample project for it in QuickStart!
