The scheduler.xml file contains the security element. With the child element allowed_host it is possible to determine one specific host or a group of hosts that are allowed to communicate with the JobScheduler.
- The IP address in the host attribute may be assigned a network address (A, B or C), in which case all computers belonging to the network are allowed by default.
- A network address is recognized if that the last part of the IP address is 0. Note that the JobScheduler handles the permissions for exact IP addresses with higher priority than network addresses.
All addresses lower than 128 are for class A networks, e.g. an address like 10.0.0.0. This can be specified as network address, but not 10.203.151.0 as this address is used for a specific IP.
