The ACL allows the user to limit access to MyConnection Server (MCS).

To add a new ACL item fill in the form at the bottom of the ACL section and click the ADD ITEM button.

LEVEL OF ACCESS. Decide if the new item will deny or allow access. There are different levels of "allow" and these are listed in the drop down menu.

FROM. Choose an IP or IP range for the new item to apply to.

TO. Decide which area of MCS the new item applies to. To find exact URLs simply browse to the area of MCS required and the URL bar will contain the full URL.

Automatic Login

Automatic Login gives the administrative team the freedom to grant certain IPs and IP Ranges automatic access, without the need to keep entering a username and password.

Simply choose the IP address and the User name to use as the login. The user name drop down list is compiled using the generated users. This is done in the Users & Security section of the main menu.


Cross-site Request Forgery Protection
