Add-WebConfigurationProperty and -name parameter

Hello EE,

I have a script that denys an ip between certain hour, it works great for one ip , however , I am uncertain how the -name parameter works for the Add-WebConfigurationProperty and Remove-WebConfigurationProperty . Currently, I could only use the "." for a name , it will not accept ip addresses as the  '-name' or a string value . The technet articles were of no help , does anyone have any experience using this ?

# Compose new entry    
$value1 = @{allowed="false";ipAddress="192.168.0.1"}


$Start = "04:00"
$End = "07:00"
$now = @(get-date)
If($now -gt $Start -and $now -lt $End){
# Add new entry to restrictions
Add-WebConfigurationProperty  -Filter 'system.webServer/security/ipSecurity' -pspath MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/webapi/v3/client1 -name "."  -Value $value1 -ErrorAction Stop
}
else{
# remove new entry to restrictions
Remove-WebConfigurationProperty  -Filter 'system.webServer/security/ipSecurity' -pspath MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/webapi/v3/client1  -name "."   -ErrorAction Stop
}

Try with -AtElement parameter to remove single entry from collection, example..
$value1 = @{allowed="false";ipAddress="192.168.0.1"}
Remove-WebConfigurationProperty  -Filter 'system.webServer/security/ipSecurity' -pspath MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/webapi/v3/client1  -AtElement $value1 -name "."   -ErrorAction Stop

PS : -Name Parameter accepts name of Web Configuration Property.

Can you give an example of a value you tried to use as a string and the resulting error message?

I think what it is based on request and error below is the name "." is a property , however that leads to how can I  remove ip addresses based on a "name" or ip address , do I need to use a where clause?
