Whitelist questions with IPv6 was created by tadbrunye
Hello - I usually use mysql to manually edit the whitelist file. I would like to create a wildcard string so that my unique IP prefixes are always whitelisted. I see an example of this in the documentation, but only for IPv4. My ISP uses IPv6.

Here's an example:

My IPv6 always starts with: 8961:14b:983:h554.....
For example: 8961:14b:983:h554:k6s2:1372:28dk:4472
The wildcard I tried is: 8961:14b:983:h554:*:*:*:*

But that doesn't seem to be working. I still get the "webmaster has blocked you" warning each time my IP changes, and need to manually add my current IP to the whitelist database via mysql.

Is there a wildcard format that will actually work?

Thanks and happy new year!

Happy new year your you too, tadbruyne!

For IPv6 (and also for IPv4) you can use CIDR ranges; there is a badge with info about it into every tab of "Waf configuration -> Lists":
A good link to get more info about IPV6 ranges is this post of mediawiki

Thanks.
I put my prefix followed by :/32 in the whitelist.
8961:14b:983:h554::/32
I'll update if that doesn't work.
