IP Address Restrictor


This is code so that you can change the page based on the incoming IP Address - for example, we use it to:

A) Make certain information only available to those on campus (a staff directory)

B) We have various online databases through our library that access easily on site, but if you are offsite, you need to go through a proxy. This allows one page to have the 'correct' links either way.
