Use this pattern on the Block/Accept > URL Patterns page to block any IP-based surfing (e.g. http://22.214.171.124). It is important to note that IP exemptions still take precedence. The following should be entered as one line:
Using this regular expression may also block applications attempting to access remote servers over port 80 using URLs containing IP addresses instead of hostnames. This is not common, but this regular expression may inadvertently block an application that communicates to remote servers over HTTP, by IP address. If you are using this regular expression and need to allow certain IP-based destinations, enter those destinations as IP exemptions on the Block/Accept > IP Block/Exempt page (these take precedence over URL patterns like the one described above). For more information on Block/Accept rule precedence, see Solution #00002442.
