If yore gonna check for IP, you should do it in pre-login so you can reject the username/password combo if the registred IP of account does not match.But guess its better to write a custom login handler for that, that also checks user's ip against database, in addition to username/password, and tells client username/password is wrong if IP is unauth..

Is post-login scripting the best most efficient way to go?Regards,Lefteris
