Better protection for administration accounts

We have just added a feature to allow administration accounts to connect to a dedicated TCP/IP port only. This way you can block admin connections only to LAN or specific IPs on your company firewall. Now you have both - the best protection of your system and ability to properly manage and control your installation.

The way it works, is to have a separate, dedicated DNS domain (vhost) for administration accounts only. Then you can configure the Tigase to accept connections for this domain on a specific TCP/IP port only. Then you need to update your firewall or router to allow only specific connections and traffic to the server on this port. Tigase will not accept connections for admin domain on any other TCP/IP port, effectively blocking admin access from the internet.
