Description: It's possible to read protect pages using id:*

In certain case it would be interesting to allow some IP's to view the page, without authentification

Syntax could be : id:*, ip:x.x.x.x

Is there a way to include this in the Cookbook/AuthUser script ?

One can always authorize by IP from within local/config.php -- try something like

    if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == 'x.x.x.x') $AuthId = 'username';

This says that anyone connecting from 'x.x.x.x' is automatically authenticated as 'username'.

Let me know if that works for your application.


It rocks perfect ! thanks, I think this could be explained in the Cookbook/AuthUser --Isidor
