Hi everybody 

I have a VPN100 with latest Firmware.
I use the GEO-IP blocking mechanism a lot and it's working great.

Recently I added an additional country to my GEO-IP Blocking Group.
Then I waited for about 30 minutes, but this country was still not blocked.
After a restart of the firewall, this country was blocked immediately.

Is this a bug?
Does the firewall not recognize the change in the GEO-IP GROUP ?

The #2, #3 and #4 groups are groups with specific countries in it.
The 1st group is the main group and contains the groups #2, #3 and #4 and it's used in all rules.

Anyway, a restart helped, but for the future it might be useful that this rule could be applied without restarting the whole device.
