I am being asked to ban all IP schemas from Russia, China, Bulgaria, Hungary, India, Ireland, and the Ukraine through my firewall.  Does anyone know how to do this?  I know how to block IP addresses but don't know how to identify a countries schema.

    what type of firewall are you using that will make a difference on how.

    if your FW can handle it, you can just block their country extension for one... but if they have a .com etc you will need to know the ip space. will give you the country codes.

    You would have to determine what ip address ranges are in use in each of the contries and block each range in the router. I don't know which model of Sonicwall you have, so I am unsure if it will support a sufficient number of entries.  Let me know what the model number is and I will let you know if there is any other choice.
