Restricting viewers by IP using wildcards using Streaming Engine
I have been asked to restrict a VOD file to our organization only. We have a class B block of addresses.
I scoured the forums and articles and saw that the Streaming Engine allegedly has this built in, so I just upgraded from Server 3.1.1 to Streaming Engine 4.04 on a Windows Server based on an
article that said that the Streaming Engine incorporated this function in its core.
However, when I try to use an IP restriction using wildcards (ie: XXX.YYY.*.* where XXX and YYY are part of our organizations IP address block) on a VOD application, I get a message that I am using an invalid IP addresss.
A comma separated list could have a huge number of IP addresess, so the wildcards are essential.
Is this an implemented feature? I see a comment that says it may be imlemented in the future, but that doesn't help me now.
