Good day,

 

I am currently creating a whitelist for my office router. Model AC750 Archer C20 (I did not see it in the dropdown list).

 

I am busy putting in the URL's for Microsoft, but I noticed that on Microsoft's list alot of URL's start with an asterisk.

e.g.  *.aria.microsoft.com  ,  *.o365weve.com  ,  *.office365.com 

 

Should I keep the asterisk when I type the URL's into the Target list for Access control?  Will this mean that anything that uses that URL will be allowed through?

Or was the asterisk just a generic placeholder that they typed on their list?

 

I need Windows, Office365 and Microsoft Teams to be allowed through the router.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

I think if you try to include the asterisk which is supposed to be a wild card you will get an error. You would use something like www.sitename.com instead.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I figured it out.  In order to allow all addresses based on a domain, the domain should be typed in the router access control without the asterisk.  e.g.:   microsoft.com

But when whitelisting or blacklisting in Windows' Internet Explorer, it can be typed with the asterisk in order to provide for all addresses base on the domain.  e.g.:   *.microsoft.com
