Because the amount of live data available is limited, it may be useful to restrict access to it. DBDOC provides two ways to do this: by Windows logon name or by IP address. Do not use both methods at the same time.
Live data access restrictions are not configuration specific. They are shared by every CIUMon and every configuration running on a given machine.Blocked users who try to access live data will receive an error message letting them know that they have been blocked.
Note: If a username has ever been changed, you must block or approve the original username. For example, if user "Smith" was originally user "John Smith," but the username was changed, you must block "John Smith." Blocking "Smith" will not work. This is due to how Windows stores usernames.
Note: There is an exception to the rule that only IP addresses that are both approved and not blocked can access live data. If you block a range of IP addresses and then approve a single IP address in that range, you will be able to get live data from that single address. This makes it possible to block a range of IP addresses but allow access from specific computers in that range.
