AIOS releases IP Whitelist: Ensure key IP addresses are unaffected by firewall rules
The new release from AIOS allows for greater control over the plugin’s firewall settings.
The latest release from AIOS introduces an important feature that allows admins to whitelist IP addresses, meaning the site will not run firewall rules on their requests. By being able to whitelist particular IP addresses, administrators have greater control over who can access the website and who can perform administrative action, without worrying about being blocked by the firewall.
Further changes included in this update include a filter for the audit log; it is now possible to choose which events are recorded, helping you to streamline the log and focus on what’s important. The user experience has also been improved, with various aspects of the interface updated.
