The Client IP address range is similar to what is called a blacklist. You can specify the client IP addresses that tell the Gateway Enforcer appliance to only check specific IP addresses to see if they are running the client and meet required security policies. If a client is not on the Client IP list, then it functions as if it had been assigned a trusted IP address.
In contrast to the Client IP address range, trusted external IP addresses are similar to what is called a white list. If you check Assigning trusted external IP addresses, the Gateway Enforcer appliance validates the client that tries to connect from the external side except clients with trusted external IP addresses. This process is the opposite of Client IP address range, which tells the Gateway Enforcer appliance to only validate the clients in the Client IP address range.
