It is extremely important to understand the difference between these two lists:


Safe List: this list does not restrict access to your virtual server. IP addresses and networks in this simply will never be blacklisted by Protector.

White List: this list actually does restrict access to your virtual server; when the White List is not empty, only clients connecting from whitelisted IP addresses and networks will be allowed to connect to your virtual server, all other client connections will be dropped before they even try to authenticate; IP addresses and networks in this list can still be blacklisted if they do something wrong.
