Configure IP access rules to allow or deny access for all the administrators.
You can define IP access rules to allow/deny users' access based on IP address for all the administrators.
If you do not specify an IP address, the administrators can logon the server with any IP address. But if you set an allow list, the administrators can only obtain access by IP addresses specified in the list. If you set a deny list, the administrators can have access to the server by any IP address except those specified in the deny list. The order of the rules is also very important.
Refuse this administrator's connection from any IP except 192.168.1.188.
Refuse this administrator's connection from any IP, since 192.168.1.188 after * impacts nothing.
Administrator from local host
Remember whatever IP rules you added, administrators can always logon from the local IP address 127.0.0.1
So if you want to disable remote control from this administrator, just add rules like this:
The Rule list shows the current list and the order of IP rules. Rules can be added or removed from the list using the Add and Delete buttons.
Also, the order of the rules may be altered using the Up and Down buttons on the right of the rule list.
IP address ranges and wildcards are supported by Wing FTP Server, as below:
IP address must be exactly matched(e.g. 192.168.1.1).
A specified range of IP addresses, e.g. 192.168.1.10-25.
A specified range of IP addresses, e.g. 192.168.1.0-192.168.5.255.
*.*.*.* or xxx.*.*.* or xxx.xxx.*.* or xxx.xxx.xxx.*
Any valid IP address value (For example, 192.168.*.* represents any IP between 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.255.255).
CIDR convention is also supported :
192.168.0.0/24 (represents any IP between 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.0.255)
