Install WHMCS OVH IP Manager Module
The OVH IP Manager will allow your customers to perform advanced tasks on any OVH IP. Many customers require services like rDNS records to be configured and without the OVH IP Manager, your customers would have to submit a ticket to your support team asking for this to be completed. This increases response times, increases ticket load and decreases the availability of staff. The WHMCS Module, OVH IP Manager can help tackle these issues.

So, from Settings > Products & Services choose a product that you want the IP manager to work with. Add a new custom field named IP_BLOCK1. The field type should be a text box and the “admin only” box should be ticked. Click save
This will allow one IP block to be managed. But, to add more, repeat the process but the next custom field should be called IP_BLOCK2 to add another create a new custom field called IP_BLOCK3. You can configure up to 10 IP blocks in V1. Next, navigate to the customer’s WHMCS profile. At the bottom enter an OVH IP block assigned to the customer.
