Integration with IPmanager

ISPSystem

IPmanager is a control panel that can be used as a centralized web-interface for IP address management and allocate IP addresses to servers. 

  • an IP address will be allocated only to one server;
  • it helps configure a name server for PTR management.

A control panel administrator can allow a user to use specific ranges and groups of IP addresses.  So, an administrator in IPmanager can allocate a network cluster for every user. 

For more information on how to install IPmanager please refer to the article Setup and configuration.

IP address group management 


DNSmanager uses only one type of IP addresses  — dns. You need to add it in IPmanager→  SettingsIP address groups:

To use the IP address from a certain group,  set permissions for the user account which is used for integration with DNSmanager. Log into IPmanager as Admin → MainUserPermissions:

An empty list of permissions indicates that the user account cannot use any ranges of IP addresses.
