Allow selective users to login to Openfire from outside the office


We have deployed an Openfire server on a Win2K3 server and have 65 users registered and connecting successfully from both within the office and outside. Due to a recent security issue, we would like to restrict access from outside the office to only specified users. Is it possible ?

I checked the admin console of Openfire but did not find any specific setting to achieve this. The external users do not have static IP addresses, so I cannot do source filtering either on the firewall or Openfire. Has anyone done this before ?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.



There is no such option in Openfire.

Thanks for the information, wroot.
