Firewall - Import/Export IP List and Bulk Add
Would it be possible to add an import/export feature to the Firewall settings or at least provide a bulk add capability.
Adding IPs one at a time is very time consuming to say the least.
A simple solution would be to permit a comma separated list to go into the text field.
Please add as soon as possible!
Yes please, +1. I can't really use File2Ban until I have some easy to maintain IPs, added a description is also required.
YES. This needs to be implemented!!

Really need this feature to blacklist/whitelist a list of ip addresses

I agree to this 100 procent! I would be really usefull if you could bulk add ip-addresses to the firewall!
I'd like to import this list: http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/
I want to block China, Viet Nam and other origins of attacks I get on FTP, SSH, WWW... servers.
My hosting provider is migrating me to a new server. They told me they cannot transfer my existing Firewall list of denied IPs.
So instead of being able to export the list of IPs and import them on the newly provisioned server I have to re-enter each one by hand.
Another scenario. Amazon Cloud publish a list of the IPs they use. They are often abused by spammers and bots which can attack hosted forums and CMS. You can pick up the list here... https://forums.aws.amazon.com/ann.jspa?annID=1701 ... until Pinterest came along I used to block all of their EC2 IPs and trouble just faded away. However I still block aggressive bots and unwanted probing from cloud hosting providers from RedStation, ahrefsbot, panopta, etc.
So, assuming I want to drop an existing list of denied IPs and replace with a fresh list, it would be really nice if I didn't have to do so line by line, by line, by line, by line... if you get my point.
