Configuring IP Access Filtering

Configuring IP Access Filtering

LanSchool Air now supports the ability for administrators to define the networks that students join to be monitored by teachers. Enabling the IP Access Filter prevents student devices from being viewed or monitored while outside of the organization’s network. 

If students are participating in distance learning and their devices are not connected to the organization's network, leave IP Access Filtering disabled to allow remote students to connect to the class. â€‹

Follow the instructions below to configure and enable the IP Access Filter for your LanSchool Air organization.

  1. Log in to LanSchool Air with your site administrator account.

  2. From the left navigation menu select SETTINGS.



  3.  Select IP ACCESS FILTER from the left navigation pane.

  4. Select ADD RANGE



  5. In the IP Address Range pop-up window, enter a public IP address for the start of the permitted range. 

  6. Enter a public IP address for the end of the permitted range. Be sure to use public IP addresses that are used by your organization (not internal IP addresses). If your organization uses only a single public IP address, enter that IP address as both the starting and ending address in the range. If you do not know the public IP addresses used by your organization, contact the person who manages your network infrastructure or your internet service provider (ISP).

  7. Select SAVE.


  8. Toggle the Enable IP Address Filter switch to enabled to start filtering student devices. The permitted addresses display under the ADD RANGE button.

  9. (Optional) To edit or delete an IP address, select the More  icon to the right of the address, and then select Edit or Delete.


If you need to add additional, non-consecutive IP address ranges, select ADD RANGE and repeat steps 5-7.
