This feature is only available with Hermes SEG Pro License.
The Administration Console Firewall allows you to specify IP Address(es) that will be allowed access to the Administration Console independendent of the User Self-Service Portal. By default, all IP Addresses are allowed access to the Administration Console as well as the User Self-Service Portal.
The Administration Console is reachable through https://<ipaddress>:9080/admin/ where the User Self-Service Portal is reachable through https://<ipaddress>:9080/users/ where <ipaddress> is the IP address or the hostname of your Hermes SEG. By enabling the Administration Console Firewall, you will be restricting access ONLY to the https://<ipaddress>:9080/admin/ address.
For best security, it's recommended that you enable the Administration Console Firewall to restrict access only to specified IP addresses.
Note: In order to prevent a lockout of the Administration Console, the system will not allow you to enable the Administration Console Firewall unless the IP address that you are accessing the the Administration Console from is in the list of Allowed IP Addresses. Additionally, it will not allow you to Delete the IP address you are accessing the Administration Console from from the list of Allowed IP Addresses.
