How to Exclude Multiple IP addresses

Everything is similar to how we did for a single ip address above except, you have to enter regex for multiple ip addresses. Let’s say we have two exclude two different ip addresses 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1. The regex would be

^192\.168\.0\.1$|192\.168\.1\.1$

Start with ‘^’ then precede each dot with a backslash(\) and put ‘$’ at the end of ip and separate multiple ips with a pipe(|). The easiest way to write regex for multiple ips is first write down the ips together

1). 192.168.0.1192.168.1.1

2). Add ‘^’ before the first ip address ( ^192.168.0.1192.168.1.1)

3). Add pipeline between both ip addresses (^192.168.0.1|192.168.1.1)

4). Add backslash just before every dot (^192\.168\.0\.1|192\.168\.1\.1)

5) add ‘$’ sign at the end of each ip address (^192\.168\.0\.1$|192\.168\.1\.1$)

You can add multiple ips using the above regex.
