How to use wildcards in Protocols White List


This article contains information on using wildcard symbols in Protocols White List.


When using wild cards (* and ?) in Protocols White List, NetworkLock performs reversed name resolving of IP address (similar to 'ping -a' command) into a domain name and compares it to items in the white list.
This, however, does not happen with items without wildcards.

Sometimes reversed IP resolving returns a name different from the one in the WhiteList thus causing its dysfunction.


'' is resolved into is resolved backward into ''.

Thus, '*' record in Protocols White List does not allow access to the specified resource, while '' does.
