By default, the IDOL View component attempts to access and process any URL or Web address that you send in the
Reference action parameter for the
View action. You can configure View to block certain URLs, host names or IP addresses. In this case, View does not process viewing requests for those URLs.
Open the IDOL View component configuration file in a text editor.
ViewBlockedURLsCSVs to a comma-separated list of URLs that you want to block. You can use Wildcard values in the URLs. The IDOL View component matches the URL string, and does not retrieve files for any matching URLs. For example:
This example blocks any URL that contains the string
restart, and also blocks any Web address that ends with
example.com, or an IP address that starts with
15. It does not block the IP address that
example.com maps to, or the name of a host that uses an IP address that starts with 15.
ViewBlockedHostCSVs to a comma-separated list of IP addresses or host names that you want to block. View performs a host name lookup and blocks both the IP address and the host name. For example:
In this example, View blocks the IP address
184.108.40.206 and any host name that points to it. It also blocks
www.example.com and the corresponding IP address.
Save and close the configuration file.
Restart the IDOL View component for your changes to take effect.
