Using IP Access Lists in Enterprise Cloud Portal to restrict access privilege to specific IP addresses

IP access lists log the IPs of local users, remote users, and remote hosts in an authentication database that is configured to control access to Puffin Secure Browser. Unwanted traffic or users are blocked, making your networking environment isolated and safe from attackers.

To enable IP access lists for your organization, tick the checkbox to only allow users from allowed IPs.

How to add IPs to IP access lists

  1. Navigate to Add a new allowed IP address.
  2. Enter an IP address or IP block (IP range) you wish to add.
  3. Click Add.
  4. The IP address will be added. It will take effect after users relaunch Puffin Secure Browser on their devices.
  5. Note: IP access lists support the CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation, in which the IP address is suffixed with a slash and a number, used to specify the length of the associated routing prefix, e.g.

Bulk Operations

In addition to adding IP addresses one by one, Puffin Enterprise Cloud Portal provides bulk import and export features.

  • Note: The file uploader supports text files in the format of one IP address per line. Simply enter mail addresses and save them as a text (.txt) file.

How to import a text file:

  1. Navigate to Allowed IP addresses.
  2. Click Import/export.
  3. Under the Import user IP section, click Choose File and choose the target text file (.txt) to upload.
  4. Click Upload.
  5. Click OK when the confirmation dialog appears.
  6. The IP addresses imported will overwrite your existing data.

Once you have configured the IP access list, you can download a text file (.txt) of the list to your hard drive. You can edit, then import the file again to the Enterprise Cloud Portal to add new IP addresses.

How to export your IP access lists:

  1. Navigate to Allowed IP addresses.
  2. Click Import/export.
  3. Navigate to Export user IP.
  4. Click Export and download as a text file and save the file to your local hard drive.

Please notice that Puffin Cloud Portal is only available for Business and Enterprise subscribers.
