If you do not specify any IP address, the administrators can log on the server from any IP address. But if you set allowed rules, the administrators will only gain access from the IP addresses specified in the allowed rules. If you set denied rules, the administrators will have access to the server from any IP address except those specified in the denied rules. The order of the rules is also critical.
