Firewall rules not working

Hi all,

I’ve used the following very simple rule to block all traffic from outside Australia and allow known bots, and it doesn’t seem to work.

Do you any reason why it wouldn’t work?

Appreciate any insights.

That looks like it should work.

Have you tried setting it to Not Equal something like Canada to see if it would block yourself?

Hi, I have been doing that. I also tried “Not in”.

This is a Bubble site so perhaps it has something to do with that?

Have you tried making two separate rules?

Yes, I’ve removed the bot rule and sill get the same results.

Might be a silly question, but what makes you think your rule is not working?

I’m currently accessing the site from a country that is NOT on the list.

Do you have any other Firewall Rule with higher priority than this one?

I don’t, however I know that Bubble already uses cloudflare so could it be that their rules override my rules? I’m not sure.

Hi @mihira,

What’s the domain?

That could well be the issue if you can’t proxy traffic due to The orange to orange problem, your rules won’t work.

Hi @domjh, I’m sorry I’m not yet ready to reveal that. But yes this seems to be the problem. Thanks for that post you linked.
