Configure Settings Specific to a Client Host

Use client host subconfigurations to apply settings to all users connecting from a specified client computer.

To configure client host-specific settings

  1. Start the server console, and then click Configuration.
  2. Under Subconfiguration, click Client Host Configuration.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Identify the host computer using a fully qualified domain name or an IP address. Regular expressions are supported.

    Caution: Have you correctly identified the client host computer or computers? Refer to the notes below.

  5. Click any of the available panes, and then modify the settings you want to apply to users connecting from the specified computer or computers.

    Note: When you change a setting in a subconfiguration panel, a blue asterisk appears next to that setting (non-inherited setting icon (asterisk)). This indicates that the setting is no longer inherited from the global configuration. If you change the value of a non-inherited setting to match the inherited value, it does not return the setting to the inherited state. Use Reload inherited settings to return pane settings to their inherited state.

  6. Click OK.
  7. Save your settings (File > Save Settings).


  • The resolved domain name for a client is always the fully qualified domain name. This means that when you specify a host using a domain name, you must either use a fully qualified domain name, or a regular expression, to ensure that host domain names are handled correctly. For example, if you specify the client "mypc", settings will not apply to the client You must explicitly specify "mypc\.myhost\.com" or use an expression such as "mypc\..*" to ensure that settings are applied to this host.
  • If IPv6 connections are supported, a client connecting using an IPv6 address may be allowed access even if the IPv4 address of that client is on the list of denied client hosts. To configure Reflection for Secure IT to deny all IPv6 (or IPv4) connections, from the Network pane, remove any listening address in IPv6 (or IPv4) format.
  • Always use \. to indicate a period to avoid unexpected wildcard matches. For example:
