Description

This article describes how to view, create, and manage Firewall IP Address Lists on a Network Domain in a MCP 2.0 Data Center location.

For an overview of Firewall IP Address Lists, see Introduction to Firewall IP Address and Port Lists

Prerequisites:

  1. Firewall IP Address Lists are only available in MCP 2.0 Data Center locations. 
    For information regarding the differences between MCP 1.0 and MCP 2.0 Data Center locations, see: Understanding MCP 1.0 vs. MCP 2.0 Data Center Locations.
