TCP/IP Addresses of Lyris Admins

admin_ip=

This parameter specifies the TCP/IP address mask of computers that are allowed to login as administrators. Adding this setting will remove the "admin" link from the web interface for anyone whose TCP/IP address does not match

Administrators always have to give a name and password to login, and this provides a reasonable level of security. If the admin_ip parameter is undefined, then any user can get the "Administrator Login" screen and try to login. However, without a valid username and password, they will not be able to access administrator functions.

The admin_ip parameter provides additional security, by displaying the "Administrator Login" menu only to approved TCP/IP addresses. Other users will not even see the "admin" menu choice.

This parameter is a mask, meaning that it specifies a pattern to look for. For example, if you specify "207.105.6.", then any user with a TCP/IP addresses beginning with "207.105.6." will see the admin menu.

This parameter allows you to restrict administrator access to TCP/IP addresses within your company.

You can specify as many admin_ip address as you like. The following example would allow admin menu access to TCP/IP addresses beginning with 193.158.17.* and 198.15.* as well as to the specific address 194.204.17.2

    admin_ip=193.158.17.
    admin_ip=194.204.17.2
    admin_ip=198.15.
