Problem or Goal
Cause
Solution
To disable administrator access from external access, please perform the following steps:
  1. Login to the admin console
  2. Navigate to Administrators > Admin Realms > [Admin Realm Name] > Authentication Policy > Source IP
  3. Under Administrator sign in ports, uncheck the box for Enable administrators to sign in on the External Port
If the PCS device is configured as a one-arm configuration (internal port only), please perform the following steps:
  1. ​Login to the admin console
  2. Navigate to Administrators > Admin Realms > [Admin Realm Name] > Authentication Policy > Source IP
  3. Select the radio button for Allow or deny users from the following IP addresses
  4. Under IPv4/IPv6 address and netmask field, enter the internal ip range to allow from the internal network
  5. Select the radio button for Allow
  6. Click Add
  7. Under IPv4/IPv6 address and netmask field, enter *
  8. Select the radio button for Deny
  9. Click Add
To avoid denying all connections, ensure the allow rule is above the deny rule. Once completed, the admin access will be disabled when reaching the external port or the ip address range that does not match the allow rule. If access is blocked, end user will receive error message:
You do not have permission to login. Please contact your administrator.
