     5The idea of this recipe is to provide automatic user authentication based on specified IP addresses for some client computers.

    9 You must define a model that permits defining a tuple (ip addr, user): ip from browser that connect, and users that authenticated.
     9You must define a model that allows defining tuples of type (IP addr, user): IP of the client computer with the web browser, user to be authenticated.

    60 The middleware installation requires you insert ''IPAccessMiddleware'' into ''MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES''. Obviusly, it also requires the installation of ''!AuthenticationMiddleware''.
     60For the middleware to work, you have to insert a line with ''IPAccessMiddleware'' into ''MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES'' of the settings.py file. Obviously, it also requires the installation of ''!AuthenticationMiddleware''.

    62 The code would be like that:
     62The code should be something like this:

    78 I also developed [attachment:ipaccess.tgz ipaccess application] which offers this functionality. For installing you have to untar compressed application and put in ''apps'' directory in your project. Then, you have to ''update'' import statements and add to applications installed settings:
     78I also developed [attachment:ipaccess.tgz ipaccess an application] which offers this functionality. To install it, just untar the files in this archive and put it in ''apps'' directory in your project, then ''change'' the import statements and add a two lines to the settings.py file:
