IP Address for VPN

Select if the IP address range is assigned to devices using Virtual Private Networking (VPN).

Note: When the flag is checked, the LOCATION business rule ignores the comparison of the location for that asset. The location cannot be inferred from the IP address because the IP address is issued by the VPN. If the SetID and location are specified, they will be ignored.

Note: IP Addresses cannot overlap. Addresses in the IP Address From to the IP Address To cannot be included in another range.
