SYNTAX

<address>

<address>/<prefix>

# Comments

DESCRIPTION

agentsmith can be configured to ignore certain IP addresses using an exclude file. The action script will not be executed for hosts appearing in the exclusion file and the offending hosts are not remembered. The exclude directive in agentsmith.conf(5) is used to specify the location of the IP exclusion file.

It is possible to specify entire IP ranges using a prefix length or a single IP addresses. Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported.

agentsmith expects one IP address or range per line. Lines starting with a ’#’ are ignored.

Sending SIGHUP to agentsmith let it re-read the contents of the file.

If agentsmith is run in server mode, and remote_authoritative is set to 1 (‘one’), agentsmith will ignore this file when receiving offending hosts from remote agentsmith instances.

EXAMPLE

192.168.1.0/24
