Trusted Hosts

The Trusted Hosts form allows you to limit access to the Web Host to only the IP addresses listed. This feature may be combined with the /W3 switch to allow these Hosts to bypass system password authentication. This is useful for real time updates to the system when using Web Predictive Dialer.

This feature is available through the System menu, Network and Environment option.


Trusted Hosts form

Enable Trusted Hosts Feature

Switch this ON to use the Trusted Hosts feature. Collect! Web Host will accept requests only from the Hosts listed below.

Enable Only For W3 Mode

Switch this ON to only enable the Trusted Hosts feature when Web Host is started with the /W3 command line option.

When this switch is ON:

If you start an instance of the Web Host WITHOUT the /W3 argument, this list is ignored. All IP addresses making requests to the Web Host are evaluated and those with proper passwords are allowed to access the Web Host screens.

If you start an instance of the Web Host WITH the /W3 argument, only IP addresses in the Trusted Hosts list will be allowed to access the Web Host. This is important because the /W3 switch bypasses the system password authentication process.

See Command Line Startup Options for more information.
