Authorized AIM IP Addresses|
The Authorized AIM IP Addresses tool allows you to specify the server Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that are exclusively authorized to submit transactions for your payment gateway account via Advanced Integration Method (AIM). Transactions received from any IP address NOT included on your Authorized AIM IP Addresses list will be rejected.
Note: You will need to pass the Customer IP Address (x_customer_ip) in order to use the IP Administration tools. For more information, talk your Web developer or the person who performed your integration.
IMPORTANT: This tool is only applicable for AIM transactions. Do not use if you submit transactions using Server Integration Method (SIM) or WebLink.
The filter status, Filter Enabled, Filter Disabled or Not Configured appears at the top of the page.
To enable the Authorized AIM IP Addresses Tool:
Step 1: Click the Enable Filter check box at the top of the page. Or, to disable the Authorized AIM IP Addresses Tool, make sure that the Enable Filter check box is deselected.
Note: If you choose to disable this filter, the IP addresses previously entered will still be saved.
Step 2: To add an IP address to the AIM IP Address List, enter the first set of digits (up to three) of the IP address in the first text field, the next set of digits in the second text field and so on and click Addâ€ºâ€º. You may have up to 500 IP addresses in your AIM IP Address List.
Note: You must list at least one IP address in order to enable this tool.
Step 3: To remove an IP address from the list, click on the IP address you would like to remove on the right side of the page and click â€¹â€¹Remove.
The Total IP Address Count indicates the number of IP addresses currently included in the AIM IP Address List.
Step 4: Click Save to save your settings or click Cancel to cancel the action.
Your saved settings are applied immediately to all transactions screened by the Fraud Detection Suite.
Transactions that are rejected by the Authorized AIM IP Address tool are blocked entirely by the payment gateway. They are not tracked nor are they available for review.
