Allow/Deny access to form by IP or Host

You can allow or deny access to a certain form from a certain IP, subnet or host.

You should use these settings in the config.php file either for certain forms or globally.

  1. Allow IP
  2. Denied IP
  3. Denied Address

Allow IP

You may allow users to submit your form only from certain IP addresses or address ranges.

Examples:

allow_ip = 123.45.67.8

This will allow all users with IP 123.45.67.8 to submit your form.

allow_ip = 123.45.*.*

This will allow all users with IP range 123.45.0.0 to 123.45.255.255 to fill your form.

allow_ip = 123.45.67.*, 123.55.77.88

This will allow all users with IP 123.55.77.88 and on range 123.45.67.0 to 123.45.67.255.

Denied IP

You may deny users from submitting your form by setting their IP addresses or address ranges.

Examples:

denied_ip = 123.45.67.8

This will deny (keep) all users within the IP 123.45.67.8 from submitting your form.

denied_ip = 123.45.*.*

This will deny (keep) all users within the IP range 123.45.0.0 to 123.45.255.255 from submitting your form.

denied_ip = 123.45.67.*, 123.55.77.88

This will deny (keep) all users with IP 123.55.77.88 and within the range 123.45.67.0 to 123.45.67.255

Denied Address

This works exactly as denied_ip, but specifically by hosts names rather than IP address

Examples:

denied_addr = someone.domain.com

This will deny all users who come from the someone.domain.com address.

denied_addr = *.edu

This will deny (keep) all users from a domain .edu from submitting your form.
