IP Access

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.


For example:



Refuse this administrator's connection from any IP except


Deny  *


Refuse this administrator's connection from any IP, since after * impacts nothing.



Administrator from local host

Remember whatever  IP rules you added, administrators can always logon from the local IP address

So if you want to disable remote control from this administrator, just add rules like this:

Deny  *



Rule list

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.
