If a user is trying to access your MindTouch site from an IP address that has not been provided, then the request is rejected and the user perception is that the site does not exist. MindTouch can configure your firewall based on IP address(s) provided by the customer.
Sites using an IP restriction configuration are incompatible with the Google Analytics integration.
Reasons to use IP restrictions
- Provide limited access, such as via a VPN, based upon physical location
- Extra security for your site to ensure only users in your company or behind your firewall can access the site
