Authorizing your IP for FTP access

To increase security against password hackers we have locked down our FTP servers to only accept connections from authorized IP addresses.  If you do not have a static IP address with your ISP then you may need to re-authorize your IP every time you use FTP.

To authorize your IP you can do any of the following:

  • Visit this special URL on your website by replacing example.com with your own domain name:
     
      http://example.com/cgi-tools/ftpallow  (Tip: bookmark the page for quick access)

Or, to authorize an IP in behalf of someone else (such as a web designer), use an 'ip' parameter like this:

  http://example.com/cgi-tools/ftpallow?ip=192.168.1.1  (Replace 192.168.1.1 with the IP you want to authorize)
 

Most of these methods should have your IP authorized within 60 seconds or less.   However, checking a POP box on your domain can take up to 5 minutes before your IP is authorized.

If your IP is not authorized then your FTP software may show this error upon trying to connect:

530 This FTP server is anonymous only.
