You're aware that this allows anyone to trivially DoS your users, right? If you take the precaution of matching with the IP, it still will harm people logging in through corporate or ISP proxies. Which, admittedly, may not be a problem in an intranet setting.


This is not really a problem for us since we have a firewall that must be logged into first. Only customers to the system can actually access it. If I had a say in it, I would not implement a system like this at all, but our customer wants it.

Thanks for the warning though. I hadn't thought about the DoS aspect.
