IP based access restriction allows the administrator to control access to the community based on IP (Internet Protocol) address. Only those users who access the community from the defined IP addresses are allowed to view and participate in the community. This section is a part of Advanced settings.

Restriction At Community Level
Path: Community Settings >> Security >> Access Restriction >> IP Based Access Restriction
When you set up IP address restrictions at the community level, users outside of the specified IP address range won't be able to access the community.
If you are using Proxy Server, then provide the external IP address of the Proxy Server. Otherwise, simply enter the network address using the "*" wildcard. If you have more than one network, you can specify them by separating using "," comma.
IP Based Access Restriction is applicable for both private and public community.
Restriction At Campaign Level
Path: Community Settings >> General Settings >> Campaigns >> Edit Campaign >> Basic Information >> Privacy & Access >> IP Based Access Restriction
Using the IP based access restriction at Campaign level, the Administrator may choose to restrict users with specified IP addresses to access the campaign . The campaign will not be visible to the users who do not match the specified criteria, thus restricting them the access to the campaign. Though they will still be able to see the rest of the campaigns and participate in it.
