Restricting Help Desk Access Using IP Restrictions
This feature allows you to restrict the access of Help Desk to certain individuals or locations, such as your company network. This can be done by adding individual IP addresses or an IP range in the Enable IP Restriction set. If a user tries to view or access Help Desk from an IP that is not provided, they will not be able to access the site.
An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique address that devices like computers, phones, routers, etc., all use to identify themselves to communicate with other devices in a network. You can enter a single IP or a range of IPs.
