Limit Admin login to certain IP addresses

Currently there is the ability to limit the Admin login to localhost, but it would be nice to enable the login from a range of IPs while still blocking it to the general users.

Limit Admin login to certain IP addresses


The current version has a provision to restrict the admin account to certain IP addresses. However, there is a manual process. Try the following steps:

  • Location $INSTALL_DIR\config\umap.dat file and make a backup. $INSTALL_DIR refers to the installation folder in Syncrify.
  • Open umap.dat in any editor.
  • Modify the value for the allowedIP attribute for the admin user. Separate multiple IP addresses with a | symbol. For example, the line could look like:

        <user allowedIP="intranet||" encrypted="true" level="2" lmd="1602680910986" name="admin" password="xxxxxxxxxx"></user>
  • This will allow admins to connect from a valid IP on the same LAN and two other machines on the Internet.
  • Save the file
  • Restart Syncrify
