Parameter Required Type Description




If you want to view the IP Allow list entry or entries that contain a specific IP Address, use the IPAddress parameter to specify an IP Address. For example, if you have an IP Allow List entry that specifies a range of IP addresses from to, enter any IP address in the IP Allow List IP address range to return the IP Allow list entry.




If you want to view a specific IP Allow list entry, use the Identity parameter to specify the configuration number. When you add an IP address to the IP Allow list, the Identity parameter is automatically incremented.




The ResultSize parameter specifies the maximum number of results to return. If you want to return all entries, use unlimited for the value of this parameter. The default value is 1000.




To specify a different Hub Transport server on which to run the Get-IPAllowListEntry cmdlet, include the Server parameter in the command. If you do not use the Server parameter, the command is run on the local server where the command is run.

You cannot use this cmdlet to configure other Edge Transport servers remotely.
