MSSQL 2005 remote access control by IP address

Hi,

I was wondering is there is a way to control remote access to a MS SQL 2005 server by IP.  Say, I want to just allow one remote PC to be able to ODBC connect to a MS SQL server 2005, is that possible?  I've looked at endpoints but they seem to control access by user account or groups.


Thanks

well, you can use windows firewall, you can make rule that nobody can reach to SQL Server port (may be 1433 or 1533) and put an exception in that rule by IP.

I found similar solutions mentioning controlling the access from the Windows firewall too but thought there might be an elegant way as there is for MySQL.
actually this is the best way I suggest, once you block request right from OS firewall, it will never reaches to your server.
