Hello,

This plugin will make it possible to restrict the account of a user to a country and/or IP address. This can be a wonderful plugin to protect an administrator or moderator account.

Screenshot


Installation
1) Download the .xml file specified.
2) Import it in the admin control panel.

Usage
Simply go to the users profile in the admincp and look for the login restriction table.
You can restrict a user to an IP address, country or both.

If someone tries to login and the IP address or country doesn't match, it will simply show "the incorrect username/password entered" error message.

Note
Keep in mind that the country resolving might not be 100% accurate since the script relies on the API of telize.com.
Also don't lock yourself out!

Credits
Telize.com its API is being used to get the country off the IP address.


Let me know how it works.

Wouldn't it be better to just restrict the admin login to a set ip?

With the ability to email a user when someone tries to breach this login page.

I use the adminCP firewall and it only emails one e-mail address, so normally if you have a bunch of administrators it spams your e-mail and you can't really remember all of their IP addresses. So it's not the best thing in the world as it doesn't actually e-mail the user itself and the main admins e-mail, as I wish it would.

So this does provide extra security to limit to a IP or a country. Personally I think you should beable to use IP ranges or multiple IPs that would be my only suggestion.

What do you mean?
It's pretty much impossible to spoof an IP address of a TCP handshake.

I second this.

As I don't just log in from home. I also log in from other places.

Possible to restrict login to specific range IP? It seems this product cannot do this as I've tried (or even maybe I mistakenly had tried)
