how to restrict access by ip?

on 10/24/13, 12:02 PM 1,653 views

Hi all, I need to restrict access to all OpenERP site (even the login page) for all IPs, except I specify. Is there some config file in OpenERP to do that? How can I do that??

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 server, OpenERP 6.1

thank you in advance for your help. Regards

No. Set up a reverse proxy for accessing the website and filter IPs there. Any reason to not even allow the login page elsewhere, by the way?

Because I set a public IP in my openerp server and I need that just my branches office can access to my openerp server. Any suggestions?

If your server can be accessed from the Internet and is not protected by a firewall, you should setup a server-based firewall. Have a look at ufw - Uncomplicated Firewall.

Once you have setup the firewall, you may also want to restrict access to other services on your server (maybe ssh and others).
