This section controls one of the key parts of security. It tells the connection agent to only listen to or deny requests from specific IP Addresses. If no entries are found, access to the system is completely denied by default.
<ip address=”*” access=”deny” />
<ip address=”184.108.40.206” access=”allow” />
This example access statement instructs the connection agent to deny all requests by default. It will then allow requests from the IP Address 220.127.116.11. Access can be allowed or denied for single IP addresses (e.g. “18.104.22.168”), for all IP addresses (e.g. “*”) or for an IP class of addresses (e.g. “192.168.*”). Precedence is given by the position of the rule starting from top to the bottom. Last rule has maximum priority, while first rule has minimum priority. Typically, you will allow access to requests coming from the PerfectForms™ system. Note that the <login> provides a second layer of security.
