I am using filemaker server for custom web publishing. Can anybody please tell me how I can restrict access to databases to users by IP address? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for replying. I am running IIS. Let me explain the situation. My company uses certificates. Using a perl script, I can access these certificates and retrieve a user ID. I want to restrict write access to users who have the certificate. Also, when a user creates a new record, I want their id (that comes from the certificate) to be entered into the database automatically, and I don't want them to be able to tamper with that.

One idea I have is that the perl script sends http requests to enter new records into the database, and I limit write access to the perl script using the IP address that the script is run from.

Do you think I'm going about this the right way?

Is it possible to add users to a specific group on the server?

If that is the case, just add a privilege set to the database authenticating this group of users, check out the tech brief on external authentication.

(this works on server-level, not sure if it does on iwp.)

Hope i'm still helping...
