If you are unable to log into your account using your username and password, try logging in using an IP address. There are several options available, including static IP addresses and adding one to your network. These methods prevent IP lockouts. Read on to learn how to add a static IP address to your network and how to prevent IP lockouts.
Logging in via an IP address
IP address authentication is a secure way to access online resources. IP addresses are assigned to computers by their physical location and are managed by an organization’s IT department. IP authentication is the most common method of gaining access to EBSCO products, and it is easy to configure and provides a seamless user experience.
Your IP address is required to log in to any website or webpage. It is essentially like signing your name in a guestbook. In addition to being used to identify you online, your IP address is used for many other purposes, including social networking sites, blogs, chatrooms, and Internet forums. In some cases, cybercriminals may even use your IP address to trace your activities, including placing bugs in your email HTML.
An IP address is a unique numerical label that is assigned to each device connected to the 192.168.0.1 Internet. Your internet service provider assigns each device an IP address. Your IP address is an identification number for your computer, and it serves two primary functions: identifying your device and its location. Different types of IP addresses can do different things. For example, your Internet service provider might send your IP address to third parties when you visit a web site with banner advertisements. In addition, it could be sent to the website’s e-mail server when you open an e-mail message.
Adding static IP addresses
The process for obtaining a static IP address is relatively simple. You will need to contact your internet service provider and request one for your device. After you have obtained the IP address, you will need to login to your router’s web portal. You can usually find the credentials for the web portal printed on the back of your router.
You can use DHCP as your default network setting, but if you’re planning on doing more advanced networking tasks, a static IP address is the best option. DHCP is useful for everyday use, but it can be a hassle if you need to remember IP addresses for specific devices or when they expire. Static IP addresses are much easier to remember.
Using a static IP address makes it easier to access your devices remotely. It also makes it easier to use VoIP and video communications. It also helps protect your network from hacker attacks.
Preventing IP Lockout
IP Account Lock is a program that protects your accounts from being locked out by IP address. It works at the account level, showing you the IP addresses you are allowed to connect to and giving you the option to add new ones. This program will ensure that you never lose your account due to IP lockout.
IP Lockout is triggered when you repeatedly fail to enter the correct Windows/Mac user name and password on a particular computer. By default, this feature prevents you from logging in to that computer for up to 30 minutes. To resolve IP Lockout, you will need to physically go to the locked computer and perform these steps, or ask someone at the locked computer to perform them.
Another solution is to use a VPN client and login from a different location. However, you must be sure to verify your login credentials with a VPN client. If your login fails, you can try again after fifteen to thirty minutes.
