As an organization owner, you define IP addresses or IP ranges to either block or allow user access from specific IPs.
|Set an IP authentication preference for your organization||
|Change your IP authentication preference||You can only enable one preference or the other and once you make the change, any IP addresses or ranges you defined in the current policy will be lost when you apply the new setting.
If you want to switch from Block IP to Allow IP authentication preference or vice versa, you must remove the IP addresses and ranges specified for your current authentication preference.
|Add an exception to your authentication preference||You define exception rules for IP addresses from an IP range that is already specified in the list of allowed or blocked IPs.
|Modify the IP ranges for your authentication preference||Once you enabled an IP authentication policy, you can add additional IPs or IP ranges, edit or remove existing ranges.
To make a change, first select the IP address or range from the list, then apply the appropriate action.
I accidentally blocked myself and want to unblock my IP
If you accidentally added your IP in the Block IP list for your organization, you must file a support ticket to unblock. As you are not able to log in to your organization and use the Support Center in Cloud Services Console, you can do that by calling VMware Support.
Does blocking a user IP address in my organization block them from accessing other organizations to which they are members
If a user belongs to multiple organizations and IP based policy is enforced in one of these organizations, they are not allowed access in that particular organization. Then they have the option to switch to a different organization upon login.
