Introduction

With IP Login you can log into you Joomla frontend and/administrator side automatically by IP address.

Setup

You can simply set up your IP address and a secret URL key in your user profile in the administrator.

After installing IP Login, you will have the following settings in every user profile. So to set up IP Login for your user, go to the User Manager and click on your user account.

User Settings

With above example, you will be able to automatically log in on IP address 123.456.789.123 with URL key mxx8hrv4.

The URL key needs to be put in the url as a 'query' variable, like:
http://www.yourdomain.com?mxx8hrv4

If the URL already contains a ?, you can prepend the key with an &, like:
http://www.yourdomain.com/administrator/index.php?option=com_content&mxx8hrv4

IP Lists Pro only

The pro version of IP Login gives you the ability to use multiple IP addresses per key.

You can enter a list of IP addresses by simply seperating them with a comma.

So if you want to use the key for IP addresses 110.120.130.1 and 110.120.130.10 you simply enter:

110.120.130.1,110.120.130.10

IP Ranges Pro only

The pro version of IP Login gives you the ability to use IP ranges.

You can set ranges using the * wildcard or use from-to ranges.

Here are some examples to show you how these work.

IP RangeIP addresses matching range
110.120.130.* 110.120.130.0 to 110.120.130.255
110.120.* 110.120.0.0 to 110.120.255.255
110.120.130.50-110.120.130.100 110.120.130.50 to 110.120.130.100
110.120.130.50-100 110.120.130.50 to 110.120.130.100
110.120.50.0-100.255 110.120.50.0 to 110.120.100.255

Security warning

Be aware that there is a small security risk. The risk is low, as the hacker will have to find out your IP address (and spoof it), know that you have set it up as auto-log-in IP address and somehow find out your secret URL key.

Free vs Pro:

Add 1 IP address per user

Add up to 5 IP addresses per user
IP Lists::You can set multiple IP addresses per URL key, instead of just a single IP address
IP Ranges::You can set IP ranges per URL key, instead of just a single IP address
