    How to block auth login from more IP addreses ?


      Hi folks,

      I am trying to setup MWG to block correct authenticated user if user is already authenticated from another IP.


      Company policy plan is to allow internet access only from 1 workstation (IP address) at the same time. Connection will be allowed on different IP only when old authentization will expire. Let's say after 15 minutes of user inactivity.


      I have no success with internal auth mechanism and MWG 7.2.0.


      Do you have any idea how to setup such scenario ?


      Thanx for any advice.

          it should be possible to do this with PDStorage. PDStorage allows you to remember values associated to users for a specific amount of time, e.g. 15 minutes.


          When a user authenticates you can write his IP address into PDStorage. When he browses you check his client IP against the IP you remembered in PDStorage. If there is a match the user is permitted to browse, if there is a difference you will block the user.


          After a user has not been seen for 15 minutes the PDStorage entry expires and gets removed. If you browse and authenticate again, the new IP will be added to PDStorage.


          So this should be generally possible.
