NAME

Gantry::Control::C::Access - Authentication by IP

DESCRIPTION

This is an Authentication module against an IP range.

APACHE

This is the minimum configuration to set up Authen on a location, it is probably more usefull with Authz on and the App based authz handlers turned on as well. The auth_allow_ranges takes ranges of ip address in cidr notation comma seperated. The auth_allow_ips takes single ip addresses seperated by commas. The auth_ignore_access_handler allows the access not to over ride authen and authz if needed, set to 1 not to override do not set if you want the override to happen.
