Teradata Vantage provides the following methods for restricting database access by IP address:
- Create IP restrictions in an XML document or a directory and then transfer them to the IP restriction GDO. See the topics that follow this one.
- Create a security policy that defines IP restrictions. For details about configuration and use of policy IP restrictions, see Network Security Policy.
You can also set security policy for IP addresses in a network group. See Network Security Policy.
IP restrictions apply to direct database logons.
IP restrictions are not applicable to users who logon through middle-tier applications because the Teradata Vantage gateway does not see the originating IP address.
