How to Limit Site Access Using IP Restrictions

 

In ProProfs Knowledge Base Base, you can limit the help site access by restricting the IP. This will ensure that users from a restricted IP cannot access the help site. Only the bypassed IPs with a specific user role can access the help site.

 

Here is how the help site appears on a restricted IP:
