IP Restriction allows you to control login access from specific IP address. This means that users outside the specified IP addresses cannot access Book4Time. You can set IP restrictions for user profiles or for the location.
Important: To override IP restriction for a user group enable the following setting from: Admin > System Settings > Expand Security settings and select System > Enable Login From Unrestricted IP.
To add IP restrictions for a location:
- Navigate to Admin > Account Management > Locations > Select your location.
- Click Edit and in the IP Restriction field enter the IP Address from which you want to allow access.
Tip: To find out what your IP address is, open an internet browser and search "what is my IP address". A digit will appear (i.e. 12.345.678.90). Enter the IP address in the first field. If the IP address is static then enter "255.255.255.255" in the second field. To find out if you have a static IP address search for your IP address again the next day. If it is the same address as the first day, then it is static. If it is different, then enter "255.255.255.0" in this second field.
To add an IP Restriction to a specific user:
- Navigate to Admin > Account Management > Users > Locations > Select the user's location > Click the Username.
- Click Edit and enter the IP address in the IP Restriction field.
