        Hi Francesco,

        OK, Its on our list to be considered for future versions. Just to make sure you are aware, even if you are only notified when an IP address is added, it could result in a large number of emails. I just checked one of our servers and if this option were enabled it would have sent 432 emails in the past week.

        Can you provide more details about what you are trying to accomplish and/or why you want to know about every IP address that gets blocked? Maybe we can find a better way.

        Thanks,
        Arron

        Hi Arron,
        i would like to be notified when a new IP address is added to the list.

        Thanks

        Hi Francesco,

        Are you wanting an email each time an inbound session is blocked? Or are you wanting to be notified when a new IP address is added to the list? Alerts each time an inbound session is blocked could easily overwhelm you with email. There are days when dynamic screening blocks thousands of connections one of our servers.

        Thanks,
        Arron

        Hi Arron, only to be aware of how many times an ip try to connect and take some countermeasures.

        Regards
        Francesco
