I have a sonicwall pro 2040 and I need to block entire netblocks, specifically asia, south africa, etc.. where fraud is biggest.

So, we wanted to block this IP address 77.0.1.25 and all others in the 77.0 range.

i have added a rule with an address begin of 77.0.0.0 and a range end of 77.255.255.255

both source and destination i left as * to block all.

Any idea why this is not working?
