I assume you are trying to block something like 123.123.123.* if so you probably have to use CIDR notation

In your case it would be

However I note it also says IP range so it is likely would work as well

    @RaviJoshi perhaps they have an odd way of entering it. As long as CIDR works, you have something to learn that still messes with my head
