Love what I see so far,
Just a couple Questions
Was wanting to ask one of the "Ole-timer" users of logsat software on
"syntax" or list entiries if you will  (i.e.)
on the settings >>  Black / White list >> IP >> could the entires be 
201.0.0.0
or
201.1.0.0
or
201.*.*.*
ect if i wanted to block all of that block from Asia,
has anyone got a good functional list that can be input.
any good functional list(s) that i could plug-in would be great.
We still seem to be getting more that we (customers) want,
any help would be great.
Thanks
Diamond

Right now, you can only use 1 zero for a wildcard in ip blacklist.  EX: 192.168.50.0 would be the usage.
 
Roberto is adding in the ability to use CIDR notation.  That will allow you to do things like: 201.1.0.0/16 which will block all ips that start with 201.1.x.x
 
To my knowledge, * in not available for use in ip blacklist.
 
If you are wanting to block geographic locations, I would suggest using the country filter.  I have very good luck with it.

Actually let me correct jerbo128.
In the IP blacklist SpamFilter uses the ".0" as a wilcard. Right now SpamFilter *will* accept the double zeroes wildcards, and thus the notation aaa.bbb.0.0 will block the entire range aaa.bbb.0.0 --> aaa.bbb.255.255

Unfortunately this has the side-effect that, if an admin wanted to block the class C (with .0 as the third octet):
aaa.bbb.0.0 --> aaa.bbb.0.255, this will not work... as the entire class B will be blocked.

This was brought up by jerbo128 just a few days ago, and since this is indeed a problem, this is why we just added support for CDIR to help work around this.
