Restricting administrative access by IP

Top  Previous  Next

Administrative access may be restricted by client IP.  This is recommended in high security environments where administrators may connect only from known client IP addresses.  By default MFT Server allows administrators to connect from ANY client IP address.

Authentication timeout - The amount of time in seconds that administrative service client may remain connected without authenticating.

 

Disable IP after - Disables a client IP address after X invalid authentication attempts within Y minutes for Z minutes.

 

As an improved security measure you may define what IP addresses are allowed or disallowed access to access the administrative service.

 

IP mask examples

 

Examples of valid IP masks are as follows:

 

192.168.1.1 - Allows/Blocks a single IP address

192.168.1.* - Allows/Blocks all IP addresses in a class C IP block.

192.168.*.* - Allows/Blocks all IP addresses in a class B IP block.

*.*.*.* - Allows/Blocks all IP addresses.
