Configure an authentication exception

In a location configuration, you can provide the internal IP addresses of headless computers or devices such as servers or printers that you want to exempt from authentication. With this configuration in place, you can more easily assign a location to a policy enabled for authentication. For more information, see User authentication and group policies.

  3. To edit a location, hover over the location and click the edit icon.
  4. In the Bypass IPs section, click the link icon.
  5. In the dialog, click the plus sign icon.
  6. Enter the IP addresses of computers and devices that you want exempt from authentication.
  7. Click OK.
