Hi all,
we are try to use ip address to control who can access our web page. i want to set ip address in apache httpd.conf file. but  i found i have to put fixed ip address to that file. otherwise it does not work.
if we don't have fixed ip address for everyone, what i should do?
i tried to put ip address like: 10.10.*.* OR proxy server ip address, but they are not working.

do you have any idea? or i don't have to use ip address to control the access?

thanks a lot

in httpd.conf file:
----------config ip address part----------
#
# Control access to business partner pages
#
<Location /private/partner>
  Order Deny,Allow
  Deny from all
 
  # yyy proxy server
  Allow from xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
 
  # employee A
  Allow from xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
 
  # employee B
  Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
</Location>

Instead of "10.10.*.*" try just "10.10".

Hi,

Just change the order as:

Order Allow,Deny

Then remove "Deny from al"

It should work like that. Don't forget to restart your web server after you've saved the file.

Cheers,
K.

BTW I dont see any index page setting to your /private/partner directory. Is it becasue you've copied only the address matching part here ?

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.
