1 Application

In bxp it is possible to limit log ins by IP address.


Full documentation on this set-up and use is available in the training document CC-2-1 Security and Custom Interface configuration available here Contact_Centre_Training


IP restrictions can be applied at a system level and / or at a user level.


Application of IP addresses is on a white listing basis. i.e. No IP addresses = global access. IP address specified = access only from these addresses.


2 Ranges

IP restriction on logins has been extended to support explicit ranges:


So if we had a subset range, rather than complicate matters with subnet masks, we have provided a simple - notation.


If we needed to block a range from 5 to 10, e.g.

192.168.10.5 and

192.168.10.6 and

192.168.10.7 and

192.168.10.8 and

192.168.10.9


Previously this would have been written as 192.168.10.5,192.168.10.6,192.168.10.7,192.168.10.8,192.168.10.9


It can now be abbreviated to: 192.168.10.5-192.168.10.9
