XF 1.5 Banned ip range registration only

We have a significant number of ip ranges that we have banned over the years on our current site we are migrating to XenForo. The ip's are blocked from registration, but are allowed for posting. We have been using this to manually register the exceptions from ip addresses in areas where there is a lot of spamming, but also legitimate users that we would like to allow.

It appears that the core ip block facility blocks all activity from an ip range. Since that is something we can easily do in our firewall, we would prefer the behavior that our current software has.

Is there something we have not found that will allow posting but not registration? Or, will we need an add-on to modify the behavior?

You will need an add-on - the banned ip address function blocks all activity, not just registration.
