Enable IP Restriction with Reverse Proxy

miniOrange allows you to use IP Restriction policy to provide or deny access to the users based on trusted IP Addresses. IP restrictions analyse network traffic and, if a request originating from a certain IP address appears to be suspicious, it will either prevent that IP address from accessing your web service or notify you to limit access to that IP address.

IP Restrictions enables you to provide web servers limited access based on the client's IP address. In front of the backend service, the reverse proxy product resides. As a result, it is protected against direct access by clients all around the world. When IP limits are set, users may input particular IP addresses that they want to allow or exclude from utilising the proxy connection to access their server.

Follow the Step-by-Step Guide given below to enable IP Restriction with Reverse Proxy

2. Setup IP restriction using miniOrange Reverse Proxy

  • Let’s see how we can enable the IP restriction feature using the miniOrange Reverse Proxy Product. IP based restriction is used to either restrict access from or allow access to specific IP addresses that are submitted by a user. To make this possible, the miniOrange reverse proxy product can be configured. On the same page, the user switches to the IP Restriction feature’s tab. On that tab, the user is prompted to enter as many IP addresses as he wants. Restrict or Allow depends on the user’s selection of the toggle switch. The user then can save the configuration.

The user has to click on the Edit button corresponding to the proxy URL for which he needs to edit the IP restriction settings. After clicking, the user is directed to a page where he can add as many IP addresses as he wants or remove as many of the existing IP addresses as he wants.The user then saves the configuration. These configurations are saved in the configuration file of the reverse proxy server.
