Geography blocking to China, now need to make exception for a single IP address.

Under Policies we are using deny by region with the country objects listed. One being China. I have a request for some needed technicians to be able to receive traffic now from one specific IP address in China.

 

How does one add a single IP exception in this case to allow the traffic? All my searches for exception keep coming back to Threat projection exceptions for already triggered events.

 

I just want to essentially white list a single IP from China but continue to block the rest of the address scope in the China object. 

 

Thanks for your help.

You will need to create a new rule above the one that blocks China. Just put in that IP you want to allow and tighten down the rest of the parameters you want (zones, users, apps, ports, etc.).

 

Rules do have the option of negating the addresses, but it's all the addresses in the rule, so you cannot have a single IP negated while leaving China non-negated.
