The ipfilter element corresponds to an IP filter. Each ipfilter has two attributes, name and type.
- The ipfilter name must be unique, to differentiate one filter from another.
- The type attribute can contain a value of either permissive or restrictive, depending on the intended function of the filter. See About Permissive Filters and About Restrictive Filters.
The ipfilter element must be a child of an ipfilters element. You can use as many ipfilter elements as necessary to define the active IP filters in an XML IP restriction document.
