 +==== IPv6 ====
 +There is a version of this plugin which supports IPv6 as well as IPv4.  It has its own documentation page [[plugin:​abortlogin:​ipv6|abortlogin:​ipv6]].  ​
 ===== Usage ===== ===== Usage =====
-This plugin works entirely through settings in the Configuration Manager. ​ You enter a list of IP addresses which are allowed to login to the wiki.  All other  IP addresses are blocked from logging in.  It is useful only in a restricted environment or where there are relatively few users who are allowed login privileges. ​ A restricted environment would, for instance, be a LAN or an office which has its own domain. ​+This plugin works entirely through settings in the Configuration Manager. ​ You enter a list of IP addresses which are allowed to login to the wiki.  All other  IP addresses are blocked from logging in.  It is useful only in a restricted environment or where there are relatively few users who are allowed login privileges. ​ A restricted environment would, for instance, be a LAN or an office which has its own domain. ​  
 +==== Caution ==== 
 +Ideally the admin should have access to the server with permission to make changes to local.php, where blocked IP's can, if needed, be removed, to prevent the admin'​s being locked out.  See [[#​configuration_and_settings]] for more information about this topic.

 If you choose to log failed login attempts, it's a good practice to delete the log periodically,​ since thousands of ip addresses can potentially be logged. If you choose to log failed login attempts, it's a good practice to delete the log periodically,​ since thousands of ip addresses can potentially be logged.

 +==== IPV6 Support ====
 +
 +Thank you - great plugin
 +
 +Would be really great if it worked with ipv6 addresses - LG
 +
 +>>Now available: [[plugin:​abortlogin:​ipv6|abortlogin:​ipv6]].
 +
 +
 +==== User group based restriction ====
  
 +Great plugin! but there should be a way to restrict any one user group to work from a given ip address instead of restricting all users.The use case is that there can be users who are allowed to access from anywhere but there is need to restrict some user groups to work from only our place of work.
