Subject RE: [users@httpd] Restricting access by IP address between Linux and WinXP

Sorry to keep reposting - but I forgot to include the error message in
error_log:

[Tue Apr 15 21:33:08 2003] [error] [client 12.42.32.222] client denied by
server configuration: /var/www/html/test.parkingticketpayment

Why is it saying request is from 12.42.32.222 - that is not my IP address. I
even tried changing to Allow from 12.42.32.222 but that did not work either.

Thanks again.

Denise

It turns out that the problem is not my server seeing my workstation's IP
address.  When I connect to www.mywebsite.com and run a netstat from my
server I see my workstation connected and the IP address shows correctly.

Now the Directory directive for the test.mywebsite.com specifies to allow
from 192.168.XX.XX which is my IP address.  However I get forbidden  access
to the / directory.  Everyone has read permission from the / directory down
to the test.mywebsite directory.

I'd really appreciate any feedback on this one - I'm really stressing over
this, and need to get this working asap.  I've been searching throught the
archives and it looks like I am doing everything right but its not working.

I made a typo before... the directives in my httpd.conf file are as follows:
<Directory />
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
</Directory>

<VirtualHost www.mywebsite.com>
  ...
  <Directory /path/to/public site>
     Order deny,allow
     Allow from all
  </Directory>
  ...
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost test.mywebsite.com>
  ...
  <Directory /path/to/private/site>
     Order deny, allow
     Allow from 127.0.0.1
     Allow from 192.168.XX.XX
  </Directory>
  ...
</VirtualHost>

Thanks for your help!
Denise

Subject: [users@httpd] Restricting access by IP address between Linux and
WinXP

I have a directory set up that I am trying to restrict public access to. I
am working from my WinXP workstation and I use a SSH client to connect to my
Linux server.  My access to the public site works fine.  

However, when I attempt to access the private site from the IP address
specified in the directive, I get a forbidden message. The good news is that
public access is also forbidden, but I need to get access from my
workstation at the least, and possibly other workstations within my office.
I am on the same network as the Linux server, and can't understand why this
is not working.  

Any ideas?

In my httpd.conf I have the <Directory> directives set up (left out
irrelevant code):

<Directory />
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
</Directory>

<VirtualHost public site>
  ...
  <Directory /path/to/public site>
     Order deny,allow
     Deny from all
  </Directory>
  ...
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost private site>
  ...
  <Directory /path/to/private/site>
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from 127.0.0.1
     Allow from 192.168.XX.XX
  </Directory>
  ...
</VirtualHost>

Thanks for your help.
Denise
