IP Restrictions limits access to your MindTouch site based upon a pre-determined IP range.
IP Restrictions limits access to your MindTouch site based upon the IP address of the request. If a user is trying to access your MindTouch site from an IP address that hasn't been provided, then the request is rejected and the user receives the experience as if the site doesn't exist. The IP Address range is provided by the customer and MindTouch configures it at the firewall level.
Sites using an IP restriction configuration are incompatible with the Google Analytics integration.
