Access Control Lists (ACLs) help manage account access by filtering users by their predefined IP addresses. These additional identifiers are configured on user accounts to ensure secure login.
Note: This service is only available for Corporate accounts.
Common Use Cases for Access Control Lists Edits
ACLs may need to be edited if an employee’s IP address or subnets have changed. To make sure the account remains accessible to the user, these may need to be updated to correlate with any changes to the identifiers previously defined for the user.
Note: To delete the IP address(es) associated with a user no longer with the organization or who no longer needs access, visit our How to Remove a Sub-user tutorial. Removing a sub-user will delete associated ACL configurations.
- You have a Corporate account
- The user has been added to the DNS Made Easy account
- An ACL has previously been set for the user
