    I'm sure this isn't possible but I figured I'd ask...

    Is there a way, either using a utility or a command line to add rules to the Block/Allow list in the firewall? I'm hoping to ban a large block of IP addresses from known spammers and I'd love to do this with a script or a utility rather than entering them all by hand.

    The list of IPs I want to block is here.

    using a utility or a commandline would be doing it manually. if there was such a utility dont you think Linksys would have made it available and done away with the Access and content filter rule pages?

    sorry but there is none that i know of. just do it by hand once you have done it the config can be saved as a backup for restoring another day.

    I have telnet enabled on my RV082 and I can get to the built-in busybox shell. Surely there has to be a way to do this from there?? I didn't see iptables listed under /bin though.
