-Since LSWS 5.4RC1, LSWS added virtual host trusted IP support, where you use ''​Trusted 1.2.3.4, 5.6.7.8''​ in Virtual Host document root .htaccess to unblock blocked IP and make that IP trusted for that vhost. ​That is not equal to the trusted ​IP configured by admin at server level and it has no effect on bandwidth. The main effect of adding it in .htaccess is to take that IP off the blacklist and disable WordPress Protect and reCAPTCHA when accessing that virtual host. +Since LSWS 5.4RC1, LSWS has virtual host trusted IP support, where you may use ''​Trusted 1.2.3.4, 5.6.7.8''​ in the Virtual Host document root .htaccess to unblock ​blocked IP and make that IP trusted for that vhost. ​This is not the same as the **Trusted ​IP** configured by Admin at server level.

 What if ModSecurity does a drop (TCP FIN) rather than deny for a trusted IP? The trusted list only has an effect on the "​drop"​ action, but not on the "​deny"​ action. A trusted IP won't be added to blacklist, but trust status has no effect on other actions. What if ModSecurity does a drop (TCP FIN) rather than deny for a trusted IP?
