Cloudflare / wordfence

I have Cloudflare and wordfence on my website.
I currently have some ips/countries locked.
On Cloudflare I have Russia locked and there are no records of attempts to enter the site for that country, but on wordfence I have records of entries on the site by russia and it appears first in the list.


Thank you for asking.

If you’re using a proxied :orange: DNS hostname, regarding Wordfence and Cloudflare, make sure to correctly configure Wordfence to work with Cloudflare proxy to return the correct visitor IP address under the Global Options - > CF-Connecting-IP:

Nevertheless, maybe you’d need to check below article and implement the needed (if possible on your web hosting) too:

Just in case, as far as running WordPress which uses WP-Cron and as far as sometimes Cloudflare catches it and block/challenge the request, I’d also suggest you to whitelist the origin host/web server IP at Cloudflare → Security → WAF → Tools → IP Access Rules with the action “allow” for your Website.
