Access Rules

Network access rules restrict access to only those assigned networks or nodes defined. If no access rules are defined, access will be granted to all networks and nodes.

Note: In order to configure Access Rules, you need ADMINISTRATOR rights.

To configure a new, or delete an existing access rule:

  1. Navigate to the MANAGEMENT > Network Setup screen.
  2. In the Actions panel on the left, click on Access Control.
  3. The Network Access Rules window displays:
  4. In the Allow From field, enter a valid IP address. It is not possible, however, to add direct IP addresses, but instead they must be input as blocks, i.e. you need to add /32 at the end of an IP address to ensure that only that address is allowed.
    Example: 10.2.100.29/32 will allow only 10.2.100.29 access.
  5. IP address nomenclature:

    IPv4—10.10.0.0/16, where 10.10.0.0 is the IP address and 16 is the subnet mask in prefix form. See the table Subnet Mask Values for a list of subnet mask values.

    IPv6—2001:db8::/48, representing 2001:db8:0:0:0:0:0:0 to 2001:db8:0:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff.

  6. Click the Add button in the Action column to add the new rule.
  7. The established rule appears in the Network Access Rules window.
    Click the Delete button next to an existing rule, if you want to delete it.
