Router Access Control

If you use Virtual TimeClock Network Edition at multiple locations across the Internet without a VPN (Virtual Private Network), you may want to consider setting up some extra security measures. By using the access control feature built into your router (sometimes called whitelisting), it’s possible to only allow a specified list of devices or IP addresses to connect to your network, even if they know the correct key or passphrase. Since every router is a little different, you'll need to consult the user's guide that came with your router for the exact steps to set up access control or contact your IT professional for assistance.
