WMS IP Address Authorization

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

You can allow or deny access to content based on specific Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or groups of IP addresses by enabling the WMS IP Address Authorization plug–in. This plug-in is useful if you want to allow access only to users on an intranet and restrict access to all other users. Or, if you believe there is a security violation on a server, you could quickly enable this plug-in to deny access to the IP address that is violating security. The WMS IP Address Authorization plug-in can be enabled for specific publishing points or for an entire server.


To deny access to content for a large number of IP addresses, consider creating a firewall rule that filters the traffic by IP address.
