Description section-099b7839c4be40c68cbff29dad14e7d5

Access to this image catalog can be restricted to one or more specific IP addresses by specifying them in an <addressfilter> element. A “request refused” error is returned to the client if the client IP address is not matched.

Access is not restricted if <addressfilter> is empty or not specified.

If the <expression> in the <rule> element is absent or empty, the <addressfilter> is applied to all requests.

localhost is always implicitly part of the ClientAddressFilter definition, even if not explicitly specified. Requests originating from localhost are never rejected, regardless of the ClientAddressFilter specification.
