cPanel & WHM Version 102 has been released, and brings a slew of great updates. Take a look at what is included, and then upgrade today!

Show all IP addresses listed in cphulk

Preston MacMillian shared this idea 7 years ago
Completed

There is currently an option to increase the number of IP addresses shown within the cPhulk page of WHM, however it is limited to 100 which can make searching for a particular IP address tedious. I believe that an option to show all listed IP addresses within the blacklist would help in searching for a specific IP address within the blacklist much easier and much faster.

Hey everyone!

In v106, we'll be adding a search function to both cPHulk Blacklists and Whitelists that will search records on IP and on Comment.

We are also going to add the ability to export these lists into a simple file, so that you can paste the file contents into the lists boxes on each of these interfaces.

We are not adding an import capability at this time, so please let me know if this is something else you'd like to see in the future by opening a new feature request for it!

EDIT FOR TRACKING: Also since it was not mentioned recently, this feature request was originally about the need to "show all IPs in cPHulk." That capability does already exist in v102. I could not find the version in which it was introduced.

It seems like a search, or filter, feature would also be useful here.

I would also add that the previous cPHulk was much easier to use for me. The new one is really unusable in terms of blacklist management. The previous version loaded much more quickly, and i could grab my ENTIRE list in a second. Now that task is made impossible by the new interface. A search function would allow the ability to find an IP address (something which you could do in the previous interface), but that would not solve the problem of quickly getting to the entire list. This new update broke cPHulk for me. Something that was so easy to use is now pretty much unusable for me - and the load times for the lists and the history reports are a lot longer. :(

I guess nothing is going to happen to fix the UI on this one. It's made cpHulk pretty useless. It's especially frustrating because the whitelist and remote service IP modules function exactly as they used to, so there doesn't seem to be a reason to nuke the cphulk module.

Just checking in. Hopefully they will restore functionality to cPHulk. It works great for us, but managing it is a mess - and i still don't understand why cPanel removed something useful and replaced it with pagination (useless) and comments (useful but in no way a substitute for quickly grabbing the IPs or quickly adding IPs). It looks like cPHulk might be permanently ruined. :(

1st:

The new cPHulk is essentially broke/unusable review wise, and needs a rewrite.

2nd:

It seems like a search, or filter, feature, more like CSF Firewall, would also be useful here.

Not being able to copy/paste a backup of blacklisted IPs quickly and easily (when you remember to do so) really hinders that getting done.

cphulk is very useful, there is no reason to call it anything different. The problem is, after years of paying a license and building a strong Blacklist of IP, they remain captive inside the control panel. I've now created a new server, but I have no way of exporting my black list so I can import it into the new server. If I could export it, I could place it in excel and sort it. In fact, if I could export it, I would import into my old server as well.

Best would be a feature added to WHM, a button to export, even a requirement to enter the server password. Or a utility, copied to scripts, to create an exported file. The problem is, it seems a security risk to show the IPs, but if you can get that close to the server, you've already past security, and being able to add to the black list improves security, what better way then to pull known offenders and plug in to another. PLEASE CONSIDER adding this feature.

The hulk whitelist and blacklist IP addresses can be imported and exported via the command line using the cpconftool:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpconftool --backup --modules=cpanel::system::hulk --verbose

The transfer tool allows one to copy the lists and hulk configuration between servers. A simpler UI method to do this would be ideal, though.

More info on the cpconftool is in the documentation https://docs.cpanel.net/whm/scripts/the-cpconftool-script/

This fits my ticket. As I'm working on setting up a new virtual server for a client, I want to move the IPs I have on my current system to the new system and with this, I will be able to do just that... So thank you!

a feature I'd like to see added, is when an IP has returned to offend, has already been temp blocked twice or three or four times, it automatically gets added to the black list and a notice received. as it is right now, I have to collect a list, clean and filter and add myself to the black list. I get so tired of re-peat offenders only temp blocked, I'd like them to be gone!

Hey everybody,

Quick question if you are watching this thread - would you expect that the export IP list would also preserve your comments?

Thanks!

Yes of course as someone may have reasons for those comments. For myself, I do not think it would matter much as I'm most interested in the list itself and what countries are represented.

My biggest issue with the black list is that I've selected by country say Russia and China the biggest offenders, and still I add IPs that say they are Russia or China. I'd like to select Russia and have ALL of Russia or China and have all of China go away (except for those IPs I've white-listed say because of software requiring it). sorry off topic.

Yes that would help to k ow why it’s being blocked and or why it’s being whitelisted.

Xx.xxx.xx.x # home office IP

Xx.xxx.xx.xxx # brute force CN


Just an example.

Thanks Kelli!!

Warm Regards,

Spiro

Thanks for the feedback! We have ensured that comments are also included in the download functionality in v106!

Hi Kelli, thanks for the update. I do believe comments are just as crucial to the IP's, to help associate the "why" they were added. Obviously, we all should have a separate worksheet tracking that info, but do think that would be helpful indeed.
