Restrict access to Web UI

Product Name: Docucentre-VI C3371

Hi,

Is there a way to restrict access to the Centreware Internet Services web UI apart from certin IP addresses?  We need to have it set so that access to the web UI is only available from one machine on the network.

Thanks.

Re: Restrict access to Web UI

It can't be done on/in/by the printer.

IP filtering is just IP's, you can't break it down by port/protocol.

Change the Admin credentials and set CWIS to always require admin credentials to access it.

I can't supply screenshots or a how to, Xerox doesn't sell those models in North America  so I have none to check/screenshot

Re: Restrict access to Web UI

Thanks for the response, so just to be clear, there isn't a way to block access to the Web UI completely unless from a certain machine and the only thing we can do is password protect the more administratuve parts of the Web UI.  Bit frustrating, we have Dell's and HP's and we can set it so that the web page doesn't display at all unless browsing from one machine, but I suppose different manufacturers do things differently.

I did try the IP filter but it didn't seem to do anything with regards to Web UI access so I assumed that was for allowing print from certain IP's.

Thanks anyway.

Correct

and the only thing we can do is password protect the more administratuve parts of the Web UI.

In most Xerox devices the entire webpage can be blocked as requiring admin rights , you get the login and need to enter it before the page will load at all, but by default, you can view all but the Properties tab

Bit frustrating, we have Dell's and HP's and we can set it so that the web page doesn't display at all unless browsing from one machine, but I suppose different manufacturers do things differently.

I guess so, none of my Canon or Konica machines do that either as far as I can tell, I don't have an HP to test and the only Dell we have are the ones that are Dell Branded Xerox devices (Dell 7765, which is really a Xerox 7855 for instance)

I did try the IP filter but it didn't seem to do anything with regards to Web UI access so I assumed that was for allowing print from certain IP's

It isn't at all port specific, you tell it to allow access from all except some IP address/ranges, or none except specific IP addresses/ranges. Anything being blocked will be blocked of any access at all. You could choose to just block TCP, but you will still near certainly break print as well.
