How are wildcards supported when used with IP addresses in the Java Rules Manager MMC console?

Supported syntaxes:

  • 192.168.2.2
  • 81.22.2.1
  • 255.255.255.255
  • 251.251.251.251
  • 12.12.12.*
  • 12.12.*
  • 12.*

Unsupported syntax examples:

  • 12.12.*.12
  • 12.*.12.*
  • 12.*.12.12
  • 12.*.*.12
  • 12.*.*.*
  • 12.*.*

Some more examples, you can test with http://137.238.1.3/is/javatest/

  • *.238.1.3 – Works.
  • *.1.3 – Works.
  • *.3 – work fine loaded java 7_80

Rules which will not work:
137.238.1.* – will not work; Java isn’t loaded
137.238.1.*/is/javatest/ – will not work; Java isn’t loaded
