Access Controls

Access control list can allow or deny ranges of IP addresses. There are several purposes for using the ACL.

providers - access conroll list

  • The main purpose of the Providers list is for your voip provider (carrier) IP addresses to the CIDR.

  • Be careful with what and how you use ACL.

  • Most common mistakes result in calls not working between extensions and other undesirable results.

  • Be sure to keep providers access control (formerly called domains) to default deny.

  • Do not put your public ip or phone IP addresses in the domains access control list.

  • Don’t supply both the domain and the cidr on the same node.

  • If adding a single IP address to the CIDR field make sure to add /32 on the end of the IP address.
